Art Direction

Full disclosure, I've fostered and adopted for Scout's Honor for years. I absolutely love them and so should you! I brought Scout's Honor into Keystone Resources when I was the VP Interactive and oversaw the visual and user experience design as well as the full development. The front-end development was split between myself and my staff, while I did all of the back-end development including the custom pet search and API integration with RescueGroups.org (also an awesome group).

I now manage the client and handle all of the maintenance and future development requests.

My work with IAME started out as MODX maintenance and grew into a full site redesign and custom PHP cart. IAME focuses on online continuing education courses and required a new streamlined user experience workflow to integrate multiple existing systems. Using MODX as the "glue" I was able to create an interface to link several systems together to allow for a more seamless workflow.

This was one of my favorite projects of all time! Aside from how awesome of an organization this is and the brilliant talent running it, the site was a fun technical challenge. I did all of the front-end markup and back-end MODX development for this site, while also co-user experience designing and co-art directing. We had a lot of content integration and design as well as the migration of the shop from Yahoo! to Foxycart along with a custom built MODX calendar. I also built several custom MODX snippets for the shop and data migrations.

For this unique staffing agency, we built a site that was simple, cool and easy to use. I helped with the user experience design, art direction and front-end markup, while focusing on the back-end MODX development and integrating their job feeds and applications with a custom third-party API.

I am currently in charge of maintenance for this site and we are working on a phase two that will implement user logins and a profile history for applicants.

Lifestyles Unlimited - Vendor Portal

On the face, this is a vendor portal site that allows the members of Lifestyles Unlimited to login to search a large catalogue of approved vendors. Behind the scenes, it is a robust blend of technologies using the Infusionsoft API to pull members and vendors into MODX and link them to an existing comment and rating platform with a datatables.js and amCharts filtering system.

I was the lead Project Manager and User Experience Designer for this project. My favorite feature on this site is the "Find A Home" section, which uses MODX Collections and a Javascript Mapping API.
