In addition to my design and development samples, check out some of these classic articles on

Soleil Spray LLC

Co-founder of a mobile spray tan startup. Soleil Spray was custom-built from the ground up as a one-of-a-kind experience for the tanning salon industry (and branching out into other service-based small businesses) via the Airbrush Elite network. Soleil Spray incorporates a turnkey setup that allows clients to offer online scheduling, sell products and services, allows customers to schedule in-home appointments online, take online payments via PayPal API, conduct email marketing, manage inventory, and run sales promotions. Soleil Spray uses the LAMP stack, incorporating PayPal, Google Maps, JQuery, HTML 5 canvas, PHPMailer, and WordPress.

Employee Referral Contest Application

Designed and developed an employee referral program leveraging social networks (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Email, and Myspace… yes Myspace… it was 2010). This program allowed competition amongst clients employees to win prizes such as iPads for generating traffic and interest in the clients open jobs. In addition to integration with social networks, this application used extensive cookie, IP, and database tracking measures to keep contests fair and free of cheating. I designed it to be a templated system with a turnkey setup for many clients to have their own branded pages and contests. Built with HTML5, JavaScript, the GD library, and FusionCharts 2D/3D reporting. (© First Advantage)

Flash Web Sites – Casino Snoqualmie, Las Vegas Sands, Interactive Recruiting Site

Fun, interactive Adobe Flash sites, now mostly archived. Extensive coding in Actionscript 2.0 for effects, communication with the browser, and form data entry. Both the Snoqualmie casino and Las Vegas Sands casino sites accepted a name on the front pages to give a sense of ownership to the visitor. The Snoqualmie site featured a “reserved” placard with the entered name on it in an animated 3D scene, smoothed and skewed to look like it is naturally part of the scene. The page would then load an interactive poker table in Flash with animated playing cards for the visitor to experience various facets of working at the casino. (© First Advantage)

Citibank “4 Seasons” Career Site

This small website, archived here, featured JavaScript animation with MochaUI and MooTools, an integrated job-search (no longer functional), and a flash presentation which I created by hand and titled “4 seasons.” The animation proceeded from fall through the 4 seasons using some great Flash effects and remains one of my favorite pieces to this day. The flash piece used motion paths and tweens along with Adobe After Effects integration. (© First Advantage)
