In 1973 I graduated from this school, which was called Holden at that time. In the last 30 years, Holden and then CCAS have helped hundreds of individuals that otherwise might not have had an appropriate environment to realize they HAD potential, let alone realize that potential ... in that regard, it is still the same place I graduated from almost thirty years ago. Congratulations and the best of luck to CCAS as it rolls into the fourth decade of providing a true alternative.
Instruments for Kids is an innovative program with the goal of filling an ongoing need to put musical instruments into the hands of an estimated 1,600 4th - 8th grade children with only a desire to play. Instruments for Kids is supported in part by The Stocker Family Foundation, The Community Foundation of Santa Cruz County, Santa Cruz City Schools, California Arts Council and the Cultural Council of Santa Cruz County. Site includes custom CGI script to handle instrument donations.
The Santa Cruz Veteran's Memorial Building Website features descriptions of their facilities and services, a schedule of weekly classes and programs, and a calendar of special events. I redesigned this site based on materials from an exisitng site. Part of the design specification was to make the site schedule and calendar pages maintainable by the non-web-developer owner.
KUSP Auction On-line Catalog 2001 & 2002
This was in interesting project. I generally receive this at the last minute, and have vitually no time to crank out the 1000 item catalog. Fortunately, I was able to get a copy in FileMaker Pro format, and export fields that I needed in a format that I could read with Perl scripts. I wrote a Perl script that generated a single web page from the auction database, and then manually broke it into eleven pieces (2001). I really did not have the time to create the fifty or so pages that really should have been done. Maybe next time ... (2002 Update: This year I altered the script to create the fifty pages, one per hour; much better performance.)
The Hapa website features one-minute MP3 clips of selected songs from their CDs, which you can order in association with Amazon.com. It also has PDF liner notes from their latest CD, which weren't ready when distribution began. It also features selected reviews and news clippings. There is a custom Perl script that collects e-mail IDs for a mailing list. [This site has now been taken over by somebody else, and completely changed. Virtually nothing exists of my previous site.]
WaveGuide deals with the controversy surrounding Electromagnetic Radiation Bioeffects and Public Health Policy. There are a couple Perl scripts that access on-line databases of appliance exposure parameters and links to related websites. Recognized by Snap! with an Editor's Choice Award.
I did this site on a very low buget for a friend. I utilized almost entirely client-supplied materials for this site, using the artwork from his book for his website. Check it out, it is a very good idea.
This site for a wholesale Rose grower was in development when they filed for bankruptcy. It is unfinished, and a little coarse, but it shows a lot of interesting capabilities. It has an on-line catalog of Rose varities, and a couple tutorials based on customer collateral. It also has a demonstration of a secure, employees only section that allows sharing company information over the Internet; this example is a rudimentary inventory control application for managing rose varieties in several wharehouses from several locations simultaneously.
Vicenti, Lloyd and Stutzman
Vicenti, Lloyd and Stutzman is a southern California CPA firm. Their site was intended to promote their services, and to eventually allow for interaction with their clients. Currently it showcases their services and personnel, and has information about workshop enrollment. [This site is now being maintained by somebody else; but is still based on my original design.]
Discount Beauty Supply Products on-line. Full-blown e-commerce solution. I consulted on the design of this site, did the artwork, and am training the owners in maintaining the site themselves. [Apparently defunct site. Domain record not currently pointing at a valid address.]
I did the original design for this site, which is now being maintained by somebody else. [Under construction 6-17-2001]
Many of the projects I have been responsible for, or involved with, have been during permanent positions, developing proprietary content. As such, most of my work cannot be used for demonstration purposes, as it lies behind corporate firewalls. Here are some brief descriptions of the projects that I have worked on in the last couple of years.
