web design

graphic design

I create websites that communicate the unique stories of my clients' businesses through creative design and expert front-end development. I have extensive design and development experience for both small business websites and high-profile corporate web applications. I am passionate about my work and always go the extra mile for my clients!

I was the sole designer and developer for the small business sites shown below but I have been more focused on web development for corporate sites since 2006.

Cutting Edge Counseling

The practitioners at Cutting Edge Counseling combine traditional talk therapy with modern mind & body intergration approaches such as EMDR, EEG Biofeedback, and Somatic Experiencing. I created their look & feel with biological and neurological imagery related to their field and utilized a blue/green color palate inspired from the design of their offices. The site features jquery and AJAX components developed with SEO practices. (The AJAX content in the "Our Approach" page uses standard links that display independent pages– with proper site navigation and design elements– when accessed directly.)


Anthony Verebes Photography

Anthony Verebes is a Los Angeles based photographer whose diverse experience ranges from portraits to architectural photography to documentation of hazardous waste removal. He needed a design which could lend cohesion to his varied portfolio, accommodate large images and provide intuitive navigation. Avfoto.com is a tableless site which utilizes CSS positioning.


FUGGIN™ Original

I designed the look and feel of fugginoriginal.com to complement their edgy T-Shirt designs while maintaining a clean and efficient UI. This CSS-positioned site features DHTML tool tips and e-commerce links to a PayPal shoping cart.

Cardiology Consultants
of Santa Monica

I used a calming range of blues and greens for the Cardiology Consultants of Santa Monica's site to give their patients a welcoming, positive feeling of health and well being as well as a reference to the beaches of Santa Monica. This site allows users to enlarge text, use drop-down navigation, get customized Google directions, and conduct research through WebMD.com.


Star Shields

I had a great time working with Star Shields' vibrant images of colorful airbrush body art to create his site design. Star Shields is well-known throughout the world as the inventor of airbrush face and body art and this site showcases his work through a series of galleries. Check out his archives for a glimpse into some early 70's counter culture.


Sandra Blakeslee

Sandra Blakeslee is a science writer with a large portfolio of books and NY Times articles. She needed an elegant, simple site to showcase her work. I used AJAX and modal popups to create a fast-loading interface with intuitive navigation. For search engine optimization purposes, the article and book synopsis files can also be viewed as their own fully-styled pages via the sitemap.


Primal Jaimal

Primal Jaimal is a heavy guitar-based rock band led by Jaimal Lovitt whose favorite color is orange! I coded primaljaimal.com with a CSS-positioned tableless layout. The site features an extensive photo album, high resolution images for press, an implementation of PHPList, and 18 full-length MP3's.


Gamelan Silih Ganti

Gamelan Silih Ganti is a Balinese Angklung Gamelan ensemble that includes one small performing quartet as well as a larger extended group of players. I designed this simple site as a promotional tool for booking performances.



Eric Rorer Photography

Eric Rorer needed an elegant portfolio site to display his photographs prominently and functionally. I developed his site with a mixture of tables and css positioning along with a series of javascript galleries that load quickly and are easy to update. The site is equipped with large photographs and intuitive drop-down navigation. Eric Rorer's photographs are striking and beautiful so you should check them out!


Mission Tile

Mission Tile Inc. is a Santa Cruz area business that sells a variety of tiles for residential and commercial use. I designed this site with a minimalist look and feel to bring focus to the beauty of the tiles themselves.



Beth Manning of Werkstudio.com wanted a clean, modern design with organic elements. She expressed an interest in earthy colors and in the aesthetic interplay of differently-sized shapes. This site features a CSS-based design and uses sIFR- a dynamic Flash text replacement script for headline text.


The Octagon House

I created this site to showcase a unique house in the Santa Monica Mountains that was designed and built by Anthony Verebes. It is a simple site aimed at attracting movie location agencies for consideration as a possible film setting.



ZunZun, a husband and wife musical duo, performs traditional Latin American music along with their own original tunes for over 100,000 children and adults each year. Much of their work is focused around educating children about environmental issues through the use of audience partipication and physical comedy. I designed ZunZun's site to reflect their vivacious personalities, their multi-instrumentalist tendencies and their love for the environment.


Master Car Wash

Master Car Wash & Detailing wanted to advertise their professionalism and friendly neighborhood atmosphere with a fun and memorable site. The owner requested a special button to promote their gift cards page so I created a hose with a clickable droplet coming out of its spout. This site also features javascript image rollovers with CSS drop-down navigation and different footer images for each page.
