Canonica Farm & Forest Services

• I met Ben Canonica over a decade ago when he and his girlfriend were organic farm apprentices. After traveling the country for other opportunities, Ben and Meg moved back to the area, were married and put down roots in a neighboring town.

• Ben asked for my help in establishing a web presence for his business, Canonica Farm & Forest Services. Ben does amazing work, whether it’s working with his excavator in the summertime or horses over winter.

• The customized site uses multiple-platform WordPress architecture and features an accordion effect to package a half-dozen slideshows. The site also allows for the addition of a blog down the road.

Nicola Smith

• After taking down her editing website a few years ago, I helped Nicola Smith come back with a simpler and better version that highlights her work – including an upcoming play about women veterans – and also can incorporate a blog down the road.

• The tablet- and phone-friendly website uses a GeneratePress template that we customized, and also includes SSL security. It’s great to see Nicola getting the word out about her work because I’m a huge fan (and her husband!).

Jill Grimes

Jill Grimes

• I have been working with Jill Grimes for some time now. An energetic family practitioner in Austin, Tex., Jill has recently published The Ultimate College Student Health Handbook, a follow-up to her successful book Seductive Delusions: How Everyday People Catch STDs.

• We have melded her older HTML/CSS and Blogger websites into one WordPress website, using GeneratePress for its structure. It is now mobile-friendly and one-stop shopping for Jill’s latest writing and media appearances.

Raise Your Glass of Wine

Raise Your Glass of Wine

• Warren Johnston began writing a column about inexpensive wines while I worked with him at the Valley News. After his retirement a few years ago, Warren has continued to do the column on his own and was looking for a way to present it online.

• I have helped to organize those columns in a WordPress-based site, which is dynamic for desktop, tablet or phone views. I also created a Wine Finder, a way to search the columns by wine type, season and type of meal.

Christine Montross

Christine Montross

• Author Christine Montross is someone I first met when she hired me to photograph her civil union in Vermont. Christine’s website was initially set up to promote her well-received book Body of Work, a meditation about being a student in the anatomy lab at medical school.

• Working with a copyrighted design Christine put together, I did the HTML and CSS coding to bring it to website browsers. Since its debut, we have built out the site to reflect her new work and reviews.

Green Spark Farm

Green Spark Farm

• I met Mary Ellen and Austin Chadd when I photographed their local wedding a few years ago. The Chadds are now farming in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, and they came to me in frustration after trying to set up a website on their own.

• Using another farm’s website I did as a template, we customized it to make it their own, with pages and pages of photographs of their beautiful vegetables.

Baldi Agency

Baldi Agency

• Malaga Baldi is a literary agent based in New York City. She has represented many authors over the years and wanted to highlight their work on her new website.

• Malaga’s site has a row of book covers across the top that change as each page is reloaded; it also has lots of interesting links and more information about the authors she represents.

Colin Hester

Colin Hester

• Colin Hester came to me via his agent, the wonderful Malaga Baldi in New York City. Colin needed a website to promote his new novel Death and the Butterfly.

• Using the GeneratePress template, I created a simple WordPress-based website that adapts to work on all devices.

Man Up and Open Up

• Eric Barthold came to me through a mutual friend to set up a new website for his speaking series Man Up and Open Up. Eric visits high schools and colleges throughout New England to speak with students about gender stereotypes.

• While Eric already had a website running through a free service, we purchased a domain name and used his content in a customized WordPress shell from Graph Paper Press. It’s dynamic, changing to fit the site of the screen the reader is using (computer, tablet or phone). It also has the option to add a blog down the road.

Deborah Salem Smith

Deborah Salem Smith

• I photographed Deb’s wonderful civil union in Vermont years ago; later, she asked me to create a website that features her award-winning work as a playwright-in-residence at Trinity Repertory Company in Providence, R.I.

• Recent updates feature Deb’s new work, including her critically-acclaimed new play Love Alone. I added an interactive slide show on the home page and new site content.
