Mobile & Desktop Web Design
This entire portfolio was hand-coded without the use of any templates, interface frameworks, or copy/pasted code snippets. It's a work in progress that will be changed over time to apply the latest techniques.
Birds of the Sierra Nevada
This Angular.js web-app is a work in progress to learn Angular while also studying the top birds found in the Sierra Nevada. A list view and detail view include common name, scientific name, frequency rank, photo, songs, calls, and 4-letter species code.
The frequency stats and species are based on data compiled by the Institute for Bird Populations, pulled from their database in 2014. I filtered the species codes, scientific names, etc of only the Top 100 species in the Sierra Nevada from CSV into a JSON file. Eventually, I plan to transfer this information and personal study data to a database.
Still collecting images and audio, so there are some blanks. Also still working on Angular features and the app overall. Eventually I would like this to be a full-fledged Quiz app w/database to add or track how well you have learned your birds!

This microsite is fully responsive HTML5 and is really just a small showcase of wildlife photography and factoids. 7.5 Wild Endorsements
"Rapport" Course Landing Page
This site replaced an older landing page that had been built with XHTML and table-based layout. The new site is HTML5, CSS3, some jQuery, and is fully responsive on mobile, tablet, and desktop browsers. My final design is here. The final page is online at rapport.dliflc.edu

Japanese Language Survival Kit
This app uses public domain content from the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center. Listen to and read more than 1,000 Japanese phrases spanning categories relating to military operations and basic survival-level language tasks. Originally written in Obj-C and designed for iOS7, it works up through iOS10. Plan to rewrite in Swift, as well as add CoreData and other functionality. Github Project RepoMore...

At Globemonkey we really enjoy creating custom graphic design work for print or online use. Could be a greeting card, holiday newsletter, t-shirt for your friend's new baby, or whatever you need. This is the fun stuff!

- Page Layout
eBooks, Newsletters, Brochures
Globemonkey still has a softspot for actual printed material. I'm totally comfortable working in traditional page layout programs to create email-sized or print-ready PDFs of newsletters and magazines. Or, I can use new tools like iBooks Author to create interactive experiences. The iBooks project below is available from iTunes here.More...

Wireframes and Mockups
Globemonkey can create low- and high-fidelity wireframes for phones, tablets, and desktop sites. I prefer a "mobile first" mindset, not only for its practical use on small screens, but for the focus and refinements it allows, stripping away all but the most essential priorities. Equally comfortable creating grayscale Illustrator wireframes, or animated After Effects videos to demonstrate user flows and interaction.More...

Prototypes and Usability Testing
I can create working minimal prototypes to put in front of prospective users early so you don't waste time or money heading down the wrong path. Balsamiq, InVision, Illustrator, Photoshop, Keynote, some other tool, or paper and markers - the point is to test ideas and iterate until you eliminate as many unknowns as possible.More...
