PlatinumLED

Ecommerce Web Application

PlatinumLED specializes in indoor LED gardening lights. The company needed a platform to sell their products online, and wanted full flexibility in layout and function in order to get ahead of their competition in usability and SEO.

Technology Used: Twitter Bootstrap 3, Laravel 4, MySQL, Stripe, Paypal

On the back end, I developed a fully-featured eCommerce system. The checkout system is built in Laravel and uses the Stripe API to process credit card payments. The administration dashboard offers reporting features to list orders and update tracking information. The system sends out automated receipts and tracking updates to customers.

For the front end, my role was to take the PSD design and convert it to an HTML/CSS template for use in the site. I set up a google adwords campaign and the facebook and twitter identities for PlatinumLED.

Hope Changes Everything

Web Site

Hope Changes Everything is a joint venture between Northland, A Church Distributed and the American Bible Society. The aim is to help people that are struggling with things like anger and depression, and connect them with the resources to get help.

This website was 100% design-driven. The biggest challenge to developing this site was the parallax scrolling. We made this back when parallax was not yet popular, and existing plugins were almost non-existent. So we rolled our own. Aside from the parallax scrolling, we also made a strong effort to match the font and text on the main pages to the PSD from the designer.

Most of the functionality is built by hand, with a few jQuery plugins here and there for video players and lightbox windows.

Digits & Arrows

Flash Games

Digits and Arrows are part of a suite of brain training programs designed to help the user with cognitive speed and function.

Both are built in Flash and Actionscript 3.0. They are served via a PHP client portal, which interfaces with the flash games to send scores and information back to the therapy provider. The therapy provider can monitor the scores in real time, and assess the improvement in cognitive function.

RefracTool

iOS App

RefracTool is an iOS app that I made for my own hobby, brewing beer. This tool helps with a long, complicated calculation needed to determine the amount of alcohol present in a batch of beer when using a refractometer.

The app was made using Appcelerator Titanium, Xcode, Illustrator, and Photoshop. I did everything from start to finish, circa 2010.

The Pinewood

Restaurant Website

The Pinewood Tippling Room is a restaurant and craft cocktail bar in Decatur, GA near Atlanta.

The Pinewood's website is done with Wordpress and a modified theme. I provide ongoing maintenance and server support, and make it a point to go eat there whenever I'm in Atlanta. Seriously, yum.
