Web

In 2018 I created a new website for the Victoria Philharmonic Choir. Here’s how it looked before:

And the rebranded site:

The mandate was to make the site highly visible (literally and figuratively) to patrons of all ages — and to make it simple to buy tickets, sign up for updates, find more information or donate. By polishing the writing, refining the look and adding meaningful content such as buttons, engaging chorister images, a media gallery and countless links, we were able to deliver a far richer experience of the choir’s long-standing excellence.

I’m very proud of how the site turned out — thanks to the unflinching assistance of Choir Manager Sherry Lepage, aided by Webmasters Kathleen Sheffeld and Kathryn Tate. Hopefully it will inspire even more people to support the choir, and will document their evocative performances while capturing a bit of the joy they bring to their city.


Heather Faris is an Animal Communicator. What’s that, you ask? I built a website to explain it: https://www.heatherconnects.com/

For comparison’s sake, here is the only web presence she’d had previously: http://www.thehealingspacecalgary.com/associates/heather.html

SFFS Blog

In spring of 2016 I was able to put together several blog posts for the 59th annual San Francisco International Film Festival, including this Q&A with six Bay Area filmmakers.

SFFS59 CBTB Q&A

I also laid out this post on Mira Nair, this list of films in competition, and Pete Docter’s rant about Aardman Animations.


Vibrant Health Retreat

A few years earlier I whipped together this Retreat Website using WordPress.

As a summer volunteer for KALW Public Radio in San Francisco, I populated their website with daily updates and wrote social media posts.

For example, in addition to writing the web version of Julie Caine’s story about a jazz-scatting scientist (above), I aggregated summaries of the weekend’s top news, did research, found and processed images, updated program information, and wrote posts for KALW’s Facebook page.

Here are other news digests I’d created while there:

For nearly a year I was the Online Editor for the Youth Employment website, assigning and contracting writers and photographers, and working with the website developers. I also contributed career features like these:
