Let’s work together
From freelance writing to web content management, I have provided a host of services for numerous companies, both big and small. I have written, designed, consulted, promoted via social media, and managed numerous e-commerce, blogs, landing sales pages, news sites, and online communities/forums. Although I primarily work with WordPress CMS (Content Management System), I am also proficient in Adobe CQ5 (AEM), Drupal, Xenforo, and vBulletin. My HTML/CSS experience is incorporated into this as well, as I am able to read and edit code.
I have highlighted what I’ve worked on thus far below…be sure to check back regularly (I would recommend bookmarking this page) to see the updates.
AT&T: The main project that I worked on was updating the eSupport and Contact Us landing pages, as well as sub-landing and product pages. I also redid some of their internal Wiki training pages, and consulted/provided QA and UAT assistance for the Device Unlock page.
La Quinta Inn and Suites: One of the last projects that I worked on was building out over 300 microsites (over 860+ in all, and I’m sure that they’ve built out even more). We used a template to upload photos, banner ads, and maps. Although most of the written content was initially provided to us, towards the end of the project, I had authored the content on the home pages myself.
The link above is a good example of what all of the microsites that I worked on look like.
TimeKeeperForum: This was the project before La Quinta…I built the community up, mostly through Facebook and within the forum itself. Speaking of, the forum itself has recently gone through a major redesign.
Daily Tech Bargains: I just picked up this domain again, after letting it go sometime ago to concentrate on other things…but the urge to have my own Amazon site was too great to resist, so I caved and set it up. I manage this in the same capacity as I do TDWU. Currently, it’s set up as part tube site, part Amazon review product site.
Examiner: Freelance automotive journalist, mainly covering auto news and recalls. The vast majority of my writing is published here.
TDWU: I currently manage this site in my spare time, mainly rotating banner ads out and promoting various article via Facebook.
CarFanatics Blog: an automotive news and review site that I wrote for, in addition to writing for the Examiner.
Contently: If the link is down for whatever reason, you can find my CF Blog articles here.
Motor Trend: I was a Forum Moderator (as known as a Community Manager) for this automotive magazine’s forum from 2008 – 2013. I, along with several other posters from AWCC (AutoWeek Combustion Chamber forum), built this once-stagnant forum into one of the largest of its kind.
These articles are from whenever I worked at Think Fixed, which is a Mac IT support company (go here if the site is down). They also provide POS services for retail stores that use Mac computers. You can read those here.
Health and Fitness
I wrote these articles for a now-defunct site about…you guessed it, health and fitness. You can find those articles here.
As a freelancer, I have worked on, consulted for, and/or written for several hundred sites. Listed below are a few of those sites (in varying stages of production):
MITA: I’m currently a part of what originally was going to be Drupal, but has since switched to the Joomla consulting team as the Web Analytics Manager. I am currently consulting on the design/content implementation, and will track the metrics of the site once the redesign is completed.
Also, I’ve consulted on the design/layout for the Director’s other site for his singing group, Goodtimes Chorus.
Dod Clapp and Associates: This is a site that I’m building from the ground up, adding content as I go along. They specialise in residential appraisals (mostly referrals from mortgage companies).
Vertical3: I am loosely associated with this company, having worked on this particular project known as “Notification Ninja“. I worked on the copy, advised on the graphics, and beta-tested the final product.
Virtus Cleaning: this is a housecleaning site that a former colleague from my auto selling days started up. I’ve been tasked with updating the copy on the home page, as well as consulting with him on the design, layout, and some basic online marketing tips.
Feel free to check out my work, and if you see something that you like, and/or you’re looking for someone with my skill set, please leave a comment below. I look forward to hearing from you.
