Select Customers

Donasity, Inc.
Donasity is a fundraising site similar to GoFundMe and caters to fundraising by the common user as well as to Non-Profit Organizations. With 1.2 million Non-Profits listed in their database, and charging half what gofundme charges for fundraising, they seek to seriously compete in this growing market. The site is completely custom. I am their Lead Developer and service and develop all content on the site.
On Demand Promo - a PPI Company Product
A full CMS primarily used by Office Depot to create Virtual Corporate Storefronts for major Office Depot corporate customers. The power of this comprehensive Content Management System includes generating the storefront itself, adding and maintaining all product and user data, setting each storefront's shipping calculation schemes and order payment methods, as well as providing Office Depot sales reps with multiple sales companion tools.
IPO Boutique
I was hired to help transform this site to be more centrally governed by one complete database and allow the IPO Boutique crew a better admin area for making changes to the site. They were mostly using a server hosted cpanel to change simple html pages, though none of them knew programming. I modified the entire site both visually and structurally, to be more dynamically driven and admin friendly.
FLVS
Florida is a nationally-recognized leader in K-12 virtual education. Florida has the largest state virtual school in the nation and that school is FLVS. FLVS offers both full-time and part-time virtual options for Florida students for free, and also offers virtual solutions for students in other states for a fee. FLVS hired about a dozen developers, including myself, to help transfer all of their coursework into a new Content Management System (CMS) called Blackboard.
Don Leslie
Don is an award winning voice over actor who lives in Los Angeles California. He needed a site to provide information about his voiceover talents, both in television and audio books, and allow visitors to contact him. The beauty of this site is the animation and audio effects that were worked in. My goal for the site was visceral execution of theme. He loves the site.
Captain Tony's Pizza
A simple restaurant site for truly great pizza.
Vincent
Vincent is a charming young actor who voices Phineas in the Disney cartoon Phineas and Ferb, and I was honored to create a new site for him.
S&S Custom
This is a dual purpose site split into two very distinct halves. It also was created with a custom CMS to allow the owner to update one half of the site.
Premier School Agendas
A school agenda is a day planner that many schools now require for their student body. This company is one of the largest printers of school agendas in the country. I was hired into their Art & Customer Materials Department and it was here that I learned how to program in the first dynamic language I would know: PHP.
Healing Hearts Ministries International
Over 3000 PHP files create this database driven site which has a 3 level membership system: Counselees work through on-line material, Counselors walk them through it via on-site messaging, and headquarters admins oversee all site activity. Includes Walkathon, Customizable E-Greeting-Cards, Annual Conference Registration and payment systems integrated.
