Nicola Smith

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!).

Paul Galdone

Paul Galdone

• The amazing illustration work of the late Paul Galdone is now online in a site maintained by his children. Galdone created the art work for hundreds of children’s books, book jackets and novels, including some that I read to my daughter when she younger. I felt very honored to be part of the project.

• The site uses WordPress architecture with a Graph Paper Press template to display the illustrations full-screen. We went with WordPress to allow for updates through a News section and other additions down the road.

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.

Rising Health Strategies

RH Strategies

• On the recommendation from another of my clients, Josh Rising approached me to help build a new website for his healthcare consulting business.

• Using a GeneratePress template, the website’s navigation leads to other elements on its single page. I also set up the domain name, hosting and security certificate for the WordPress-based site, which adapts across all platforms.

Shoestring Automotive

• With an accumulation of parts in our attics and garages, my friend Alex Hanson and I thought it would be good to launch a website to expand our reach (and bypass the fees of sites like eBay). We’re also selling new and used parts on commission from others looking to clear space.

• The website is WordPress-based with SSL security, using the GeneratePress template so it is tablet/mobile-friendly. With a WooCommerce store and shopping cart, we’re able to process payments via PayPal. Our young website has shipped parts as far away as Australia!

Thomas Kepler

• Thomas Kepler approached me to build a website for his new book, Ile de France and the Golden Age of Transatlantic Travel: High Style on the High Seas. Tom’s book details the life of a French luxury liner that launched in 1927 and also transported troops through World War II. His agent Malaga Baldi recommended me (thanks Malaga!).

• Using a GeneratePress template, the website features a book excerpt, links to order the book and a photo gallery that dynamically changes based on the user’s device (phone, tablet or computer). I also set up the domain name, hosting and security certificate for the WordPress-based site, which also adapts across all platforms.

Town of Tunbridge

Town of Tunbridge

• The Tunbridge Selectboard approached me to help bring their website up-to-date. I used GeneratePress’ WordPress template to reorganize the navigation and also used Emily Howe’s excellent photography (and a few by me) to dress up the pages. With Janet Zug’s long-running Tunbridge Quarterly and an Events Calendar online, it’s now an excellent resource for the community.

• The WordPress-based site is dynamic for desktop, tablet or phone views and search engines easily find updated pages.

Town of Williamstown

Town of Williamstown

• After I successfully revamped the Town of Tunbridge’s website, Williamstown Town Manager Jacqueline Higgins asked me to do the same for theirs. We moved the Joomla-based site over to WordPress, using the same GeneratePress-based template that I created for Tunbridge. We also included a feed to the town’s Facebook page for updates.

• The website is dynamic for desktop, tablet or phone views and search engines easily find updated pages as government documents are added.

Tunbridge Church

Tunbridge Church

• For quite a while I have been the volunteer website mechanic for the Tunbridge Church’s site, keeping it up-to-date.

• We have switched the WordPress-based website to a newer GeneratePress template that’s phone and tablet friendly, also including a feed to the church’s Facebook page to keep everyone current.

Tunbridge Hill Farm

Tunbridge Hill Farm

• For several years I have been maintaining a website I designed for our neighbors, Wendy and Jean Palthey, who have a beautiful vegetable farm. I not only designed the site for them, but I’m fortunate to go photograph their farm on occasion. There’s nothing like warm soil on your bare feet!

• The website has been switched to a WordPress-based structure with SSL security, using the GeneratePress template so the site is tablet/mobile-friendly. We recently added a WooCommerce store and shopping cart to the site, which helps Wendy and Jean to receive orders and payments before going to market.
