Back-End Development

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 RecueGroups.org (also an awesome group).

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

This is a beautiful design that I had the pleasure of marking up in the Bootstrap 4 framework with MODX as the back-end.

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.

The Dallas Design District is a large geographical area filled with various showrooms for home design. They needed a new site that allowed showroom owners in the district to login and manage their listings as well as post open jobs and search for potential talent to hire.

Working with Day Zero Creative, we used a template front-end design to create a robust user experience for showroom owners, designers and the general public alike.

Phase two of this project included building a hybrid mobile app for iOS and Android using AngularJS. You can download the iOS version here and the Android version here or just search "Dallas Design District" in the App Store or Google Play.

I did the front-end markup and back-end PHP and hosting configurations for this simple, clean and responsive one-page site.

For this hip conference site, I was the user experience designer and co-art director. I also did all of the front-end markup and MODX implementation before it was handed off to Keystone Resources for maintenance and content entry.

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.

This was my first full commercial Ruby on Rails project. I was provided design PSD's by the client and did all of the front-end markup and back-end implementation, as well as the Rails cart and Square API integration for payments.

This site came to us as an existing MODX site in need of maintenance and add-ons. After creating a new forum section and conditional profile fields for file download requirements, I helped develop a notification integration with the Sales Force API to log downloaded files as new activities in Sales Force.

Super Secret Company (NDA in Place)

For this super secret currently un-launched project, I was a hired gun to help with front-end development on a large ASP.NET application. Think lots of jQuery and AJAX mixed with HTML5 markup into .NET templates.
