Portfolio Samples

These are a few of my favorite sites. Some are simple and some are more complicated, but they are included here because each of them had some specific requirements that were not being met by other designers/developers or content management systems. These sites are intended to give you an idea of what is possible, whether your business is large or small. Every business is unique and has some needs that probably aren't covered by a one-size-fits-all website.

New England Falconry
New England Falconry offers educational sessions and hunting expeditions with trained Harris' Hawks. This is truly a fantastic and memorable experience! Participants have the opportunity to put on a hawking glove and have one of these incredible birds fly to them. Chris Davis, master falconer, explains the history of falconry, educates participants about the birds, and discusses how they are raised, cared for, and trained.

The website needed a few simple slide shows of the birds to give viewers a little peek into the beauty of this ancient sport. It needed an ordering system that could correctly calculate the fees for the different lengths & types of sessions offered. We also integrated a video about Chris done by Making It Here (WGBY, our local PBS station), and finally, added a payment gateway so visitors can purchase sessions & gift certificates online.
