Pangolin SMS (BETA)
Customized WordPress site with e-commerce shopping cart, blog, SEO upgrades, the works.
Note: This site is still in design phase. Pangolin approached me about converting their existing website at pangolinsms.com into a WordPress based site. They know of the powerful content management and marketing capability of WordPress, but needed someone to customize the layout to fit their needs. Pangolin SMS provides texting software for large events and bulk marketing, and the site is over 50 pages. I set them up with a customizable, easy-to-use interface along with plugins that will allow them to get their message out like never before.

Central Florida Arts
WordPress template with fully automated posting.
I had an idea last year to start a sort of news service catering to the Central Florida's Theatre community.
It had occurred to me that there was no single, reliable source for news and information about shows, auditions, classes and the like. In order to get all the information, you'd have to go to four or five different websites and wade through all the stuff that you didn't want just to find what you were looking for. So I decided that I would use a combination of a sophisticated news aggregator and some little widgets that I made to bring it all (or as much as I could) together. The site simply lists headlines and briaf lead-ins from a wide range of sources, and sends out an email every day. It also automatically posts to Facebook and Twitter.

Yoga Class Live
WordPress site using HTML/CSS/PHP/JQuery with Video Conferencing
This site is an online Yoga studio that features multi-user video conferencing. It is the first time that anyone has ever offered this for online Yoga classes. It also features a blog section that automatically pulls articles from several sources and posts them to the site, and sends a daily newsletter to subscribers. It features a membership system, profiles, and a forum.
WordPress site using HTML/CSS/PHP/JQuery/Lightbox
The client wanted a powerful web presence that would grab attention to promote a mental healthcare treatment center, but could also be easily edited. I recommended a WordPress template that I could customize to meet both needs.
RailTime iPhone App
Mobile Machinations, the client, wanted a design that evoked "Playful Machinery" as well as simplicity to promote their new iPhone app. This project is built upon a single web page using CSS to hide and show content based upon user selections. The effect gives a simple yet effective product showcase that is easily edited.
Pro Employer Resources
A top flash design, a navigation menu, followed by content containers. Each container is fully editable through a browser using an interface similar to that of Microsoft Word. The client can update the site with text and images without having to know any coding. Also, there is a customer content area that allows users to download completed documents directly and securely from the website. Virtually any type of document, from PDF files to videos, can be delivered electronically to PER's clients.
Flash/XML site with Content Management System (CMS).
This was another project that I stepped in for over the summer as part of my work with Royall Advertising.
I have never had much of an affinity for Flash, but this site intrigued me because of the way it used XML to dynamically read and right webpages through a browser interface. This site allows clients to change category titles, edit text, upload photos, and plan an event calendar for all five housing communities.

WordPress template with fully automated posting.
This site is the original Central Florida Arts website, but is now serving as an experimental retail aggregator site. Basically, I sign up to various affiliate programs, then set the software to work finding products to match certain keywords I identify. Every 4 hours, automatic posts are created for the site and are published using my affiliate tracking information. Posts are then copied to Twitter, a newsletter, and Facebook. With any luck, people will want to buy the products listed, which in turn will earn a commission payment.

I built my first website around the end of 1994. I was just graduating from UCF with a degree that didn't seem to help me get a job, but it turns out that didn't matter. In the summer of 1994, there were just over 2,500 websites, and by the end of the year, there were around 10,000. Now there are around 239 million websites out there. Had I realized how special and rare it was to be a part of that first 10,000 online pioneers, I might have taken it a bit more seriously.
I've been through booms, busts, bubbles - you name it. I worked in New York City during the "Golden Years" between 1998 and 2001, when venture-capital funded companies were shelling out huge amounts of money for something they didn't even understand. I've watched how we've all gotten a little cynical at times, then turn around and become excited by new technology that makes something easier, or allows us to do something we've never done before.
