Most of the work I’ve done in the past year has been building websites and blogs with WordPress. Here’s a collection of  posts I’ve written about them. You can also see some of the other websites I’ve worked on.

Sekonic Blog Launched

Sekonic Blog - front pageI had the pleasure once again of working with Matt Hill of MacGroup USA to create a WordPress blog for one of their clients, the Sekonic Company, a premier manufacturer of photographic light meters. The Sekonic Blog uses a custom child theme derived from the Twentyten WordPress theme and incorporates Featured Images and customized excerpts to give post authors more control of what appears on the blog’s front page. The site also uses advanced CSS3 properties to create rounded corners, drop shadows and transition effects

Oradell Animal Hospital website screenshotOradell Animal Hospital of Paramus New Jersey is one of the largest and best animal and pet care centers in the world. But its website was old and they were losing the graphics designer who did their updates. Their marketing director was looking for new ways to connect with their current clients and customer base. I recreated their current site’s structure and design in Wordpress with custom page templates, adding social sharing and other functionality with plugins, shortcodes and widgets.

Reimagine America

Reimagine America - front pageI just finished this site for Joyce Cordi, a management and business consultant based in San Jose, California. Joyce is passionate about politics and publishes podcasts speaking out about government waste and absurdities. She wanted a customized front page that pulled in content from her about and bio pages along with selected posts on various topics. I used a combination of custom page templates and shortcodes for her new WordPress website.

Profoto-USA rebuilt

onPhilanthropy.comI just finished a major project for Tom Watson, author of CauseWired, converting his website,, from a custom CMS to Wordpress. The new site, built on the Arthemia Premium theme, features modifications enabling it to carry ads from multiple sources, RSS feeds from companion sites and customized widget titles.

AirSafetyAndLawAir Safety And Law is intended to serve as a forum for the legal community to discuss air travel safety and liability issues. The blog is a project of Kreindler & Kreindler, the law firm that handles most of the major aviation accidents.

Gregory Poe's Federal Criminal Practice BlogFederal Criminal Practice Blog — I just completed another Wordpress blog for a client of my good friend and associate, David Schiffer, of DLS Design. David built a beautiful, static site for Gregory Poe, a lawyer in federal criminal law practice.

Humintell Launches, a website project I worked on this past Spring for the Landsman Communications Group recently launched. Humintell is about Microexpression Analysis—the understanding of the underlying emotions of people by looking for universal facial expressions that flick on and off in less than a second. I built the Humintell website using Wordpress, modifying the Minimal theme to match the graphical design, typography and layout from graphic designer, Dean Meyers.
