My work here is proprietary so I cannot show you much but I can tell you that I work on a plugin for WordPress websites used to create fun challenges and incentives for corporate event attendees to compete and enjoy the event. There are QR challenges, photo challenges and much more available in the white-label "app" that we customize with logos, graphics and company verbiage appropriate for any event and is virtually guaranteed to make the event more enjoyable and company-themed for any corporate event.

I was on the team that built the site from scratch and then updated/maintained the it. I also created small "web apps" using technologies like PHP, HTML/CSS, JQuery and javascript to create new functionality and web applications.

Yes, we do have the same last name, I guess you could say artistic talent runs in the family.

My mother happens to be an artist and she needed a website that would showcase her work and attract new people.  The full-page sliders and large images successfully make the users focus on the actual work.  This was a fun project to work on because in addition to the design and coding of the website, I got to look at art for the entire time.

This client was a sound engineer who needed a new website.  First I designed the site as a flat image so the client could see the design and give corrections.  After a few rounds of corrections from the client on my design, I customized a blank wordpress template to look like my design and built the website.  The last step of this project was to make a custom plugin so that users could listen to sound clips from his studio.  I made sure that the plugin not only functions the way it should but is easy to update for the client in the future.

The Royal is a high-end clothing store for which I designed the interface, as well as made sure to display each product on the site so that it could easily be found and purchased by customers.  This client was very concerned with how the store would appear on mobile.  Fortunately, I make all of my designs responsive so that they appear well on mobile and this was a fun challenge.

Frisa is a company that makes high-end European wines and other alcoholic beverages.  They needed a simple website to advertise their products and sell directly to consumers.  I was on the team that designed and developed this website.

This project was given to 'The DSM Group', an agency that hired me to assist on the website. We made this site for a small film agency that specializes in commercials and other short films. Although I have never worked directly with Grey Sky, they bill themselves as "New York and New Jersey's Top Film Production Agency" so I am inclined to take their word for it.

This project was given to a agency by the name 'The DSM Group' who hired me to assist on the project and do other work on a freelance basis. This company sells certain types of stone-based building materials to various types of contractors.

"Since 1904, contractors all across Northern New Jersey have come to count on Braen Stone. From building highways to driveways, bridges to tunnels, the Braen team makes sure every customer has what they need to get the job done right."

WP Monitor is a WordPress plugin I wrote that is used to monitor the vital signs of a site and it give the user important information that is needed to properly administrate the site, all in a way that is easy to read with gauges and indicators.

This website was built before me by another developer. I fixed and managed the Woocommerce store and made sure the many orders that the site receives come in and are shipped out successfully. This was a particularly interesting client because of how extensive her woocommerce webstore was, with many addons to accept bitcoin and other interesting things.

The requests I would get to work on this website were some of the most interesting I have gotten in my freelance career. Aside from having great products, this business had a very nice owner with very nice workers.
