Sole responsibility for creating and coding the front-end of a single page / multi-screen application which utilizes a JSON based .NET webservice to communicate the view layer to be displayed and updated using AJAX calls via a JavaScript / jQuery interface. JSON data attributes communicated business logic for the display of data and the functionality available to the user, such as create, edit, and delete functions. The JavaScript functions created for the application range from JSON data sorting and filtering to manipulation of form input fields based on previous selections.

Using JSON data, the app was built on jQuery and plugins including SlickGrid, UI Layout, Mustache Templates, Kendo UI HTML editor & charts, Meiomask, & SliderShock.

Columbus / Scioto Valley Rugby Club
2003-2011 : Scioto Valley / Columbus Rugby Club: I redesigned the look of the Scioto Valley Rugby Club site in the June 2009 and had originally took over webmaster and coding duties. While I was a member of the club, I held several officer positions: Fields Chairmain (6 yrs), Recruiting Chairman (3 yrs), Vice President (1 yr), and President (3 years).

Miami University Rugby Club & Alumni Sites
March 2012 : Launched Miami Rugby website...
2003 : I created the Miami U. Rugby Alumni site with content editing admin: is a future project:
After continually searching nationally for Harley-Davidson FatBoy parts via Craigslist, I soon found that I really want to create a site that will be a mecca for dealers, used parts sellers, and buyers to interact and deal for parts. As the "new" Harley-Davidson of the 2000 era turns 10+ years old, there is a growing used parts market. In my spare time between rugby and fishing, among other things, this will be another passion of mine.

The navigation and interactive dispay is all tucked into JavaScript source files, and the few images which do exist are also tucked away in the CSS stylesheet. I plan to re-code the JavaScript a little bit to make the interactive menus a little more flexible for varying length content.
2005 : A mockup I created for ADFarrow for an ecommerce oriented site...
2001-2002 : I was pitching ecommerce to Harley Dealers...
E-Commerce / Shopping Carts (1999-2003)
The Shopping Cart:
The original shopping cart I wrote in 1999 was based off mainly JavaScript and a Perl or Classic ASP back end ordering system which wrote orders to files on the system, protected by a hidden URL and password system for the admin.

View the old version on: The WayBackMachine

From there, I created a version using a ColdFusion back-end which utilized SQL Server 2000 for the database access. It will had everything from ordering controls, product controls, image controls, related products editors, error tracking, and user stats reporting.

2001-2004: is a company in Muncie, Indiana, which contracted with me to implement shopping cart services for their site soon after 9/11. This was a concept to completion project. I designed their first "database-enabled" version of their website shown below. They provided the data and images for the site while I implemented the shopping system and administrative functions for the site. After two and a half years, they moved on to another ecommerce provider who also redesigned their site. Soon after, the provider called me to apologize for "taking" their business because it was more than he could handle... I was ok with that!

Most of the screens you see here are from, of which I did not specifically design the site, just the CSS and the cart. Chris Agro of was the designer.

SureGrip International
SureGrip International skate company's website I completed in 1998 and was the same design for about 10 years.

This site was originally coded for IE4 and Netscape 4.6.
