Web Design / Multimedia
Services: My freelance work has revolved around website design and development, music production, image editing, and related services. I am an advanced HTML/CSS programmer with experience designing websites since 2002—including custom design, HTML5, XHTML, PHP, jQuery, mobile design, responsive design, semantic markup, WordPress theme design, performance optimization, social media integration, digital marketing, and analytics. I am well-versed in Photoshop editing and in digital audio recording/mixing/mastering.
Clients: I've done editing and technical work for the educational service, Ed-Tech Creations. I've mixed and mastered audio for indie rock bands including The Voxys. I've produced websites for musicians, photographers, make-up artists, and small businesses. I currently manage five client websites on the back-end, and provide services for the indie record label, Join Or Die Records, which include continued design and management of their digital storefront. I've consulted as a strategist sharing ideas on UX, social media, and communication.
Startups: I write about tech-driven music culture and the music industry on virtualmusic.tv (which I've designed and developed since 2009). I've promoted VM mainly via social media—with zero advertising budget. Another project, launched in December 2010, is the photoblog amplifiedny.com, which drew 5k+ visits in its first month and continues to have an active Flickr group. In 2011, I started work on WordPress framework for responsive design (responsetheme.com) and a related jQuery plugin (responsejs.com) both slated for a release in the fall.
