Complete website redesign for Raditaz, a personalized Internet radio service. Raditaz users can create their own radio stations by entering up to five of their favorite artists or songs; an advanced algorithm will automatically build a station that matches their exact preferences. Users can even fine-tune their stations by adjusting artist or song popularity and other settings.
Complete website redesign for Michaels Jewelers, a jewelry store chain based in Connecticut. The site makes use of cutting-edge features like CSS3 transitions and animations to create an engaging experience that also degrades gracefully in older browsers.
In addition, a custom-built CMS allows site administrators and store owners to upload new promotional images, create and update store events, and more.
Full site build for a members-only online shopping catalog. The site was coded to be easily reusable for additional catalogs in the future; the entire look and feel can be replaced just by swapping a few stylesheets and images.
FreeScore provides its members with their credit scores from all three credit reporting bureaus, along with a library of credit information and identity theft protection services.
As lead front-end developer for FreeScore's updated account management process, I was responsible for the creation of a new member login page and a series of other related pages. I employed features such as live form field validation and a password strength meter to make the signup process more interactive and engaging. Site metrics later proved that the improvements were highly successful.
I was also instrumental in bringing older internal sites up to date with current web standards and best practices.
