Application and Design Portfolio

I have been designing web sites and applications for a really long time (no, seriously, a long time). One of my web sites was featured in Internet Life Magazine in December of 1996. That would be a lot more prestgious if Yahoo hadn't killed the magazine, but still its nice to be mentioned.

A lot of my best work is locked in applications hidden behind corporate firewalls. And some of my work has been team-based, so its hard to take credit for designing a product that was actually the effort of a group of very talented people.

Here are some of the projects that I've worked on recently:

Skyhawk Chemicals, Houston

http://skyhawk.com

Skyhawk Chemicals, INC has been serving the Houston Industry for more than 25 years. When they were ready to rebuild their web site to meet
marketing and SEO demands, they contracted with 24Moves.com for their design and development needs. The color palette is based on their existing logo. Red is a very important part of their branding and image.

Technical Information: PHP, HTML, CSS.


Bridgeway Softare, Inc

Bridgeway

For approximately 8 years starting in 2006, I was an application developer for the nation's most recommended solutions provider for in-house legal counsel. I used the Iterative Design Methodology to slowly upgrade their legacy products to a more modern user interface and experience.

Bridgeway products are used by the in-house Legal Counsel for companies and organizations like CIGNA, Citygroup, Department of Labor, Dow Chemical, ExxonMobil, PepsiCo, Starbucks, Waste Management, AutoZone, Caterpillar, MGM, and many other Fortunate 1000 companies.

I was a Usability Engineer and UX professional with primary duties for Bridgeway Legal Hold, Bridgeway eCounsel, Bridgeway Secretariat, and INSIDERDirect. These products were outsourced to a company in El Salvador and my employment with Bridgeway ended shortly afterward.

Technical Information: Java, XSL, HTML, CSS, JSP, ASP.


HoustonPhotowalks.com - Photography Tours and Events

http://houstonphotowalks.com

In June of 2009, I started a photography tour group with about 30 local photographers. On the fourth anniversary, the group had 1,750 members and I've lead 180 photography events. Between class payments, donations to museums, group event collections and event fees, HoustonPhotowalks.com churned almost $10,000 in the local Houston economy.

AutismHouston

My wife and I have the pleasure of running the city's largest Autism Support Group on meetup.com. To help increase visibility and member-action, we standardized a yellow and brown (bumble bee) color palette. I not only designed the web site's look, I also created a line of T-Shirts that families can wear when they attend events at parks to make it easier for everyone to find each other.

Each year I build a special marketing web site just for those who may be interested in attending the event.
