It started in 2008, creating and managing online communities and navigating a changing online regulatory landscape for kids and teens, a demographic that had included myself.
Working with phpBB web community frameworks, crafting HTML pages, CSS, and basic scripting, unique communities were designed with forums, chat boxes, profile pages, a news portal, and arcade games.
Recruiting administrators and moderators to ensure a safe space for discussion and creativity was paramount.
In 2010, a daily blog would showcase music, books, and film reviews, photography selections, travel and writing diaries, and creative stories.
In 2011, putting that early web design experience to work, I designed the campaign website for Vern Barrett for Legislature.
The campaign provided the copy for content and I created pages for news, press, a biography, contact form, campaign photo gallery, press portal, campaign calendar, and donations.
In 2017, I would go on to facilitate an overhaul of Executive Cleaning Services’ website and branding.
An early online media presence was expanded with videos, articles, and social media portals that engaged customers and told a story about the business.
During the pandemic, The Coronavirus Revolution website was created as a resource for positivity.
The idea was to share encouraging stories and educational resources that could be explored during quarantine.
