Age of solid-state
Spinning disks are so yesterday. In almost every case, solid-state storage is superior to mechanical through its performance and power consumption benefits. If your C: drive is an HDD, lets get you on an SSDSchedule an upgrade

One size doesn't fit all
Maybe you're looking for an extensive web-based application, or perhaps just a landing page. I can develop either or somewhere in between.
Websites from scratch
Others may download a Wordpress theme, tweak some images, and call it your website. On the other hand I custom code every page to deliver a comprehensive web experience based around your specifications. Create a mockup in Photoshop or even Word and let me get to work.
Hickory Trading Web App
A local coffee bistro and gift shop wanted to accept online orders for their food and drinks. Working with them through the Summer of 2019 we were able to to deploy a custom web application that met their needs and exceeded their expectations. It is no longer active/live, but I keep a copy of it for the purposes of this porfolio. The payment integration isn't enabled either, so feel free to test out adding items to an order.Check it out →
Estabrook Civic League
I developed a website in 2015 for this civic league in Norfolk, Va. It started as a simple informational website, and quickly turned into a dynamic community hub. Instead of sending paper newsletters to everyone in the community, Estabrook transitioned to a digital newsletter system through their website.Check it out →
Friends of the VB Public Library
This non-profit organization came to me looking for a website that 'popped' and featured dolphins (the animal used to represent the city of Virginia Beach) in the design. I made a slim, custom content management system for them, so they could easily update the pages on their site without the slowdowns of most CMS platforms.Check it out →

This website is designed to be a simple web presence for the Virginia-based blues band. The schedule page includes search-engine readable metadata about the band's performances. Google indexes this data and displays it in their search results.Check it out →
In 2013 I made a website for a local jewelry store in Chesapeake, Virginia. The owner provided colors and layout sketches that I used to make a custom design. This dynamic website changes the homepage each time someone visits by randomly selecting images from each category of jewelry.Check it out →
Daniel's Advanced Readiness Tesing System
DARTS is a web application I started developing for a school he attended. It would present practice questions of CompTIA certifications and allow the user to answer them. The system tells the users if they are right or wrong after each question. In 2014 I performed a complete recreation of the application, which accomplished a much better design and made it exponentially easier to add questions, while greatly enhancing security. The testing system is available to anyone who signs up, or can be used with a demo account.Check it out →
