|The Carriage House at 26 Pearl Street Website | 2011 - Current
This is the website for The Carriage House at 26 Pearl Street in Mystic, Connecticut. I wanted to design this website with a clean and simple look. I dabbled around with some new techniques during the construction of this website such as adding text drop-shadows, table/image drop-shadows, and a new jquery/css image rotator. I am pleased with the final product. Make sure to check this site out and make reservations if you're looking for a nice vacation spot in the Mystic, Connecticut area.

|Chris Kotsopoulos Website | 2012 - Current
This website was created for former NHL Defenseman, Chris Kotsopoulos. The purpose of this website was to convey information, pictures, videos, endeavors, and have a small web store for autographed pictures. The design behind this was practical. Make it clean, yet visually pleasing with images of Chris from his playing days.

|GP Machine Tech. Website | 2011 - Current
This is the website for GP Machine Tech. GP Machine Tech is a fast growing, well equipped CNC machine shop in San Diego. The main goal of this website was to be clean, yet stylish. They wanted to convey what they do in a clear and concise manor. I felt that this design is one of the more sleek looking that I have done yet. There was an existing website before this one that I was in charge of updating to make more modern, since the previous design was a bit old and template-ish. Check it out!

|J&M Sports Cards Website | 2010 - Current
This website was created from scratch for my first free lance web job. The website is essentially for promoting sports autograph shows in order to increase sales and production.

|Jena Communications Website | 2010 - Current
I did many things for this website in order to get it up as quick as possible. While I did not really have any input on the design (it was done before I arrived), I was a catalyst in the launch of the website. Many of my projects on this job consisted of making images (headers, logos, etc), placing copy, formatting CSS code, altering navigation, making the site map, and even some SEO.

|Jena Communications Mobile Website | 2010 - Current
On this particular project, I was given free reign to design a mobile version for the new Jena Communications website. This was a great project for me as I was not only able to create my own layout from scratch, but it was the first time that I have designed anything for a mobile device. It was an interesting experience and I am glad that I was given the opportunity to do this.

|Jena Communications Blog | 2010 - Current
The Jena Communications blog was a small project that I was given while working at Jena Communications. The design was supposed to mimic closely to the current live website and the blog itself was designed to convey information and serve as a means of SEO.

|Of Elements Website/Blog | 2012 - Current
This website was designed for freelance writer, Kyle Rowan. Of Elements is a world building/fantasy writing website. The design strategy going into this website was to make it dark, sleek, and easily navigateable. The website that is currently up is a WordPress verison (it has since been switched over) that still utilizes some images that I created for the original website.

|Pocono Family YMCA Website | 2011 - Current
For this website, I was given the opportunity to give it a re-design overhaul from the previous version of the website. They wanted a look similar to that of other YMCA websites, using certain color schemes/logos/etc. I felt like I was able to make a simple, yet aesthetically pleasing website that gets the job done for what they need. From time to time, I will be doing updates on this website as well.

|Rich Barz Website | 2008 - Current
This website was designed for Rich Barz. It is a personal website used to display his resume, photos, music, and contact information in order to gain clients for music lessons. The design strategy was to stay clean and not get too "artsy". A gray scheme combined with a gold accent was used to make it look more official. The site was live in 2008, down for a while, and is currently live again.

|Rowanoake Website/Blog | 2012 - Current
Rowanoake is a blog for freelance writer, Kyle Rowan. It was set up intitially as a portfolio type of blog to convey his writing pieces and potentially continue his on-going project, Of Elements/Islands of Elements. However, upon further disgresion, the route of a website was taken shortly after... which is also in this portfolio @ http://www.ofelements.net.

|Tomb Stonez Website | 2012 - Current
Tomb Stonez was created for freelance painter & photographer Pat Egiziaco. Her website is for her custom stone design to lay at the tombstones of loved ones. The design strategy going into this website was again, keep things simple- but clean & effective. Get the point across while still looking good without an over abundance of bells & whistles.

|The Instigators Radio Show Logos
Using some design tips that I learned during my internship, I created some logo designs for the hockey internet radio show, "The Instigators". To make these logos I utilized both Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop (CS4 for each). I tried to keep the same general idea, but all the while tweaking each one a little bit to make it its own.
|Henrik Lundqvist Desktop Wallpaper
I created this wallpaper with Adobe Photoshop. It is New York Rangers goalie, Henrik Lundqvist. My goal with this wallpaper was to incorporate him, the New York Rangers logo, as well as the city of New York. Lundqvist is a great player and fits the New York personality well. I wanted the wallpaper to scream "star of New York" through it's design.
|Sean Avery Desktop Wallpaper
This wallpaper was also created with Adobe Photoshop. It is for New York Rangers forward, Sean Avery. With Avery being an edgy sports figure, I decided to use a lot of brushes and layer effects to create a flashy and edgy look. I also decided to add his name and number on this wallpaper to make it sort of official looking rather than just abstract art.

|Loneliness: Football Piece
This manipulation was for an advanced photography class at East Stroudsburg University. The assignment was loneliness and we were left to run with whatever hit our mind. My mind, as usual, was centered around sports. I created a series of photos showing sporting equipment and accessories left in places where the particular sport was played. I used photoshop techniques to make the pieces stand out from the background in order to achieve a spotlighted loneliness. This is the football piece.
|Loneliness: Baseball Piece
This is the baseball loneliness piece. To help enhance the feeling of loneliness I positioned the camera so it would get a shot going down the first base line to home plate. I tried to make it look like a lonely and narrow path leading both away and to the mitt and hat.
|Loneliness: Hockey Piece
This is the hockey loneliness piece. I did not have access to an actual hockey ice rink, so I went with the roller/ball hockey route. This picture is simple: just a hockey stick and orange floor hockey ball. The objects are alone on the blacktop, seemingly left after a game of street hockey in the winter.
|Loneliness: Basketball Piece
This is the basketball loneliness piece. In reality, the day was very wet and dreary. I went to my nearest basketball court and positioned a pair of high top sneakers and a basketball on an empty court. I tried to use the puddles and rain to my advantage. I feel I was able to create a lonely and ominous picture given the weather and court surroundings.
Being that it was around Halloween time, I decided to give this photography project a very Halloween and October-y feel. The original photos were shot using film on a very old camera (had to get developed and all of that jazz). We got digital copies back and I popped them in photoshop to edit the pictures into a series of monster portrait pictures. This particular one was my zombie manipulation. I utilized a lot of brushes, colors, effects, and layers to achieve the "undead" look.
This photo is from the same series as the zombie manipulation above. This one is for a vampire. I did many of the same techniques that I mentioned above to achieve this final result. This was actually the favorite of many of my classmates as well as my photography teacher from the series (though, I prefer the Zombie one). Please note: I purposely left the fangs a little more yellow than the normal teeth- to give the illusion that he used them quite often!
