Most of my time for the past 3 years has been in front / back end development land
My contract work since 2012 has been primarily front and back end work. Below are some relevant links and descriptions to sites / projects I’ve worked on in recent years.
While I’ve helped with design and development on these sites, the clients are not mine and on many of these projects I was beyond not alone — I have had amazing opportunites to work with some of the best web designers and developers in the Des Moines area.
- Principal Financial Group Online IRA
- Coded the site into Drupal. Custom program work to integrate product details and specs into libraries easily managed by client. Trained client on usage. Assisted with design and colors.
- Weiler Corp
- Integrated site into Drupal. Made a setup where client can populate, update and delete thousands of product nodes via a single CSV document. Site architecture (categories, related products etc) is also driven by this data.
- BFG Gear Up Promotion
- Client needed a single page app that acts as the entry point for their tire rebates and giveaways. Site features an upload / entry system that takes media from your computer / twitter / instagram / facebook as well as a twitter api integration that showcases entries from users.
- Health Careers
- Assisted in early iterations of the site. Used bootstrap, helped with site architecture, specialized in working with mobile.
- FMH Insruance
- Helped FMH with UX/UI work and research to improve the look, feel and overall engagement of their public facing and cloud based insurance software.
- Doosan Media Kit
- Built a simple Drupal site to help the client manage their events and media associated.

The Works for the N-LINE Brand
N-LINE Motorcycle Trailers is a custom work shop with a big name in the biking community and a healthy network of authorized dealers. N-LINE hired me to bring their website up to date both aesthetically and with WordPress as the CMS. Over the years we’ve done several iterations, wrote content, redone the N-LINE logo, shot videos and made print materials to help promote the company.
Since the site’s launch there’s been a significant amount of new traffic and incoming calls to N-LINE that refer the website directly.

Managing a community with WordPress
Making heavy use of custom content types, categories and custom fields I created a WordPress build that enabled Luther Care Services to post jobs, newsletters, blogs and manage content for the communities on their campus.

WordPress works well as a simple business website CMS. But for ITWC it flexed it’s muscles.
ITWC had a few simple goals — they wanted to clean up their website with a fresh look and have the ability to manage their large library of MSDS PDF’s and the data associated with them for the various chemical solutions they offered.
ITWC has since been bought out by BASF

Over the years I have helped my clients with more than the web.
While the web is my specialty, my design and creative thinking skills have come in handy in helping my clients promote or even create their brand. Below are some samples of print work, logos, photos I’ve taken/re-worked and video’s I’ve shot

In 2007 Links Marketing Group asked me to create virtual samples and design concepts for their marketing promotional products.
Below are some samplings of that work. The design goals were to show what a product would look like with a logo placed and come up with concept art. Common techniques were things like showing embroidery stitching, chrome finishes, etc.
