I was recruited for this contract position to help a large, well-known family foundation organize their media. I guided them in the setup of a massive database of photographs, complete with metadata and keywords. I also provided them with IT consulting and website maintenance.

I consulted for this corporation as they were expanding from a small, one website web store, to a multi-site, multinational corporation who imported goods directly from manufacturers around the globe.

Mobile Development

All of my sites are responsive and mobile friendly. I can help you get your site online and in a mobile format.

Social Media

I have vast experience with social media marketing and promotion. I can help you navigate the uncertain waters of social media, and bring your product, service, or message to the masses.
