A custom WordPress theme for a client

When using WordPress, and when possible, I like creating a custom theme. This allows for more creative control and not having to lean someone else's way of thinking or approach to design. This one uses HTML5, SCSS and Foundation.

Christ Fellowship

A custom WordPress theme for a local church -

This is another custom WordPress theme. Adding video as a background to a site, when it makes sense, is a great way to quickly communicate things like culture and purpose.

For this site, I handled client interaction, design, wireframe and development. I used HTML5, CSS, Foundation and also wrote a custom WordPress plugin for the sermon search.

Vue.js search filter -

This group has an internal web design team that reached out for some technical assitance. One of the needs was a way to search quickly and easily through the providers. Using Vue.js allows the user to quickly enter letters into the search as the page responds with each keystroke.

Pal's Sudden Service

Hiring App for Pal's Sudden Service -

I worked with this client to take a regular job application form and make it a little more interesting. It was also important for the user to be able to move around in the app and gain an understanding of progress. The hiring app is created in .NET and feeds into their back business operations, for which I created the user interface.
