Project Type: Flash Website/Google Calendar

The Martin Yoga website was developed for a San Francisco yoga instructor who works at several studios in the Bay Area. The client wanted the smooth finesse of flash animation and the ability for visitors to see his schedule and availability. We incorporated Google Calendar into the site allowing visitors to view his schedule without leaving the site and even click-thru to subscribe to an event. I am currently the webmaster for this site. Currently we are developing a podcast for the site to be launched very soon.

Project Type: Flash Website

Sometimes you are lucky enough to find a project where you can pull out all your tricks and bells and whistles and really have fun with it. Such was the case with the site I built for Cuyama Valley Elementary. Their eighth grade class holds an annual car show fundraiser to raise funds for things their budget doesn't provide for like school pictures, a graduation ceremony, and annual field trips. Really exploiting the car show theme, I worked in lots of sound effects and car related graphics.

Both the kids and the community that supports them are over the moon that they now have a website for their event that is so much fun and can help them raise more money for their class. It was a joy to do this project and I am very pleased with the results. I am currently donating hosting and webmaster services for this client and hope to do what I can to help them out for years to come.

Martin Richards Interiors is a design studio in San Francisco catering to high-end clients who want fresh, modern and sometimes eclectic design for their homes, offices and buildings. They also have a furnishings showroom where clients can choose from many one-of-a-kind pieces and other great finds.

Definitely not a client to walk a conservative line, MR wanted all the bells and whistles on this elegant, flash-based site. We really wanted to focus on the photography that illustrates the work they have done on their various projects. With a clean, user-friendly interface, the site's colors and style reflects MR's elegant and eclectic taste. I am currently the webmaster for this site.

Transplanted from the UK, this client wanted to build the site off the concept of her being the "Royal Baker". Weddings are festive occasions so we wanted the site to be bright and cheerful and fun.

For this client I built the site from the ground up. The site features several photo galleries showcasing the cake designs as well as a section for testimonials from her happy clients. I am currently the webmaster for this web site.

Project Type: Ecommerce Website/Google Analytics/SEO

Coyuchi Organic Cotton is a company based in Northern California who work with organic cotton farmers and manufacturers in India to produce bedding and bath items sold in the US and Canada. Their goal is to produce products that reflect the "natural opulence" of the cotton they produce and have positioned themselves as a high-end brand in the marketplace of organic goods.

For this client I have been working as webmaster for several years the site has evolved several times to its current state. The old ecommerce platform was seriously obsolete so I incorporated an open source system called Zen Cart. I also set them up with the ability to process real-time credit card transactions.

The second stage of the current redevelopment entailed optimizing the site for improved search engine rankings and incorporating Google Analytics tracking in order to provide them with in-depth information about the site's performance and visitor habits.

The Ribbonerie is a retail shop in San Francisco that sells every type of ribbon imaginable. They are a paradise for many that are in search for that perfect color or style of ribbon. Many of the merchandise is exclusive and only available on the West Coast at their shop. I worked closely with the client to create a site that reflected the store's look and feel and that would be appealing to their many ribbon aficianados that would be visiting the site. We wanted the visitors to be able to browse through ribbon styles and colors easily in a catalogue type layout without sacrificing the design that was established for the site. Other features built into the site include a Flash-based email contact form, and a Flash-based testimonials page that updates easily through an external text-based file. I am currently the webmaster for this client.

Project Type: Ecommerce Website/Email Marketing/Google Analytics/SEO

Through the sales of t-shirts and other fashions for men, women and children, the Wildlife Works line is designed to both educate about wildlife conservation and support their worldwide efforts at making the planet a better place to live. Wildlife Works commits a large percentage of their profit to develop and maintain a wildlife sanctuary in areas surrounding Tsavo National Park in Kenya, Africa. They call their approach "Consumer Powered Conservation".

As webmaster for this client, I designed and executed their very successful email marketing campaigns. We consistently got very high click-thru rates that ended in eventual sales on the site. I recently gave the site a make-over which optimized the code for better search engine rankings and incorporated Google Analytics traffic analysis to give them in-depth information about their site's performance and visitor's viewing habits.

Project Type: Flash Design for Conference Presentation

Working with Symantec's Enterprise Software division, I created a flash-based presentation to accompany a speech given by one of their top executives. Because their software can only be observed in working mode when it is live and monitoring a server farm, I had to make it appear that the speaker was actually connected to the internet.

To satisfy these requirements I completely recreated a computer desktop and browser interface in Flash that would emulate this experience. No detail was to be left out, even the timing of making web requests from the server was included to create the real time experience. The presentation also had to be scalable so that it could be run on large video screens at Moscone Center in San Francisco.

Project Type: Video Editing and Encoding

For the final chapter of this ground-breaking music festival. I had the privilege of editing and encoding all the video clips of the festival's performances for the official web site.

In 1999, this was one of the first projects to make exclusive use of the newly released Quicktime streaming video technology. Being in the Bay Area, I was fortunate enough to get special training at the Apple Campus, learning first hand all the important tricks of this sometimes difficult craft of encoding video for the web.
