Current Design/Development Projects:

I am not taking any new design/development clients at this time. I highly recommend the team at Mahalo Media Group and, for the specialty of author websites, the very talented Ilsa Brink.

Upcoming work includes animation work with Ilsa Brink for a website redesign she is leading.

Recent design and development projects include work with Stoller Design Group (for clients such as Kaiser and Samsung), Alison Levine, and Marjorie Liu.

Project of note: Inspire Change Online Storytelling Tool for Kaiser Permanente won a Gold Quill Excellence Award for Communication Education Tools in 2013
