This site is fully Responsive for tablets and mobile devices, and Retina ready for high-definition screens. Check out his portfolio.
This site encompasses a number of rental villas in Montenegro, with multiple domains mapped to one site. The header and landing page change based on the domain. I did all the design, as well as the implementation.

Stone Soup is a housing cooperative with three houses, so the site I built for them is actually a network of sites, with over 40 users. The site features a complex content management system, with each house having its own jurisdiction over the content on its site.
This project also includes development of Stone Soup’s social media presence, employing RSS syndication and networks like Facebook and Twitter to promote the Co-op and communicate with the larger community.
In addition to design and development, I also did most of the photography for the site. The new site has proven an indispensable outreach tool for the co-op. Since its launch, Stone Soup received over 5 times as many applications as it did previously. Stone Soup’s main site is StoneSoupCoop.org.
This online business journal approached me to design an eMail newsletter that would look good on multiple platforms.
For security reasons, most eMail clients prevent images from downloading by default. For this reason, I created a template that would display well, with or without images. The template includes a header, a bar graph and even advertisements styled entirely in CSS. View the demo to see the newsletter with or without images.
Those are a few of my newer projects. You can also if you'd like.
