Over the past two decades, I've had the opportunity to work on dozens of design and interactive projects. Here are some of my favorites.
- UI Design/Dev
Weather Forecast App
For my second Vue.js app, I created a simple weather forecast app that fetches a five-day forecast from the Open Weather Map API. This project was also part of an interview process for a large digital consulting company.
Credit Card Picker App
As part of the interview process with a well-known financial services company, I created a small app that allows visitors to choose the best credit card for them based on credit rating and card type. Password protected – type "user" and then "pass" to gain access.
Brand Standards for Small SaaS Company
While at GoSpotCheck, my team and I worked with Denver-based Studio Mast to level up our branding. I created our brand's type standards and secondary color palette, then designed and built a website for our Brand Standards to facilitate company-wide adoption of the new brand.

Custom WordPress Social Sharing Plugin
One of the requirements to join the Toptal network as a WordPress developer was to write a custom social sharing plugin using the WordPress Plugin API. If you'd like to see how I write and structure code (specifically PHP), I encourage you to download this plugin and take a look.

Custom WordPress Pricing Calculators
I replaced Dazzle Printing’s old pricing calculators, which were difficult to update, with a simple interface in a WordPress backend. Pricing is calculated on the front-end with Vue components and validated on the server with a PHP class.

Data Visualization Mockup Tool for SaaS Sales Team
In the early days of GoSpotCheck, the sales team needed a way to quickly show prospects how our reporting dashboard looked. I built a WordPress-powered backend that let them create mock dashboards in a matter of minutes (it was more flexible than the real thing!). The team used the tool for over four years.

Custom Performance Review Portal
Before GoSpotCheck got big enough to afford enterprise HR software, I was asked to build a performance review system into our internal, WordPress-powered knowledge center. I created a very robust system that, among other things, emailed users when reviews were ready.
Miscellaneous Old UI Design Mockups
I culled through a pile of old website designs for the clients I had at my digital agency, and was pleasantly surprised at some of the work I did. I think many of these designs would still function well if implemented today, even though they are a bit dated.
