1993 I saw my first website. I convinced my company that the web
was the wave of the future and we needed to be on it. In 1994,
I built my first website for The Doctors' Company and it was one
of three insurance companies listed in the Yahoo directory. Today
there are over 5,000. I also built our first company Intranet
putting many of our internal documents like phonebooks and manuals
on our internal network.
In 1995, I had a vision of what the web could
be, fully realized when I saw the first ever web movie debuted
at Mac World. I nearly fell out of my chair...sound and motion
coming together for the very first time. I knew what I wanted
to be when I grew up.
I designed brochures and flyers and mailers
by day, and by night I taught myself Director (now Flash) and
made electronic greeting cards for a fledgling company called
e-greetings.com in exchange for training in Photoshop. My first
card was featured on channel 7 news. That was back when the web
was news...now it's history.
My next professional website job was an online
store, TravellerGolf. Utilizing the brand new technology
in the inital version of Yahoo! Store, I developed my first e-commerce
solution. I have been involved with online shopping since
1996, and I have learned a great deal about how to sell on the
1999 I had three Internet stores under my belt, and I undertook
a major store site with over 2000 products. Heaven & Earth retail website featured high-end health and beauty brands, and I
designed some cool customer interfaces that reccomended gifts based
on the consumers astrological sign and also a comprehensive aromatherapy
section that allowed users to select products based on things like
mood & feeling. The site itself was feng shui, utilizing the
elements and the "bagua."
Blending cutting-edge technology with
art has always been the most rewarding part of my work.
six-month project with Boeing involved designing a promotion site
that gave people around the world an opportunity to cast their
vote to name their new airplane. Working with a translation team,
the site was available in 6 different languages. In addition to
the voting, the site featured a sweepstakes which needed to incorporate
different rules and laws for each country. I also designed the
follow-up site, which displayed the results, and offered an interactive
user experience. I take no
responsibility for the current site, although it does retain
some elements of my original design.
