History of success in the corporate world...  The combination of my 15 years' worth of skills, experience, training, education, and interests combine to make me a writer who can do more than just put words on paper—or on a screen.  I become your partner in getting results from your target audience.  And when I create your message, you can be sure it will be clear, accurate, and well written.

Portfolio and Experience:

One of many of The Visual Bible product pages

Because I've created more than a few websites myself, I have in-depth knowledge of how to create web content—for a variety of businesses and organizations.  I can work with the web designers and programmers as part of a true team because I know the techniques and the limitations of writing and designing for the web.  (And yes, I can create a small or medium business website for you, too.)
Electronic Data Systems (EDS)
(Plano, Texas)
User Experience/Web Standards Development Team

Developed and edited content for more than 70 website standards and best practices for EDS-developed internal and client websites worldwide (Fall 2005 to December 2006).  Standards covered a full range of issues including website content, usability, visual design, functionality, and accessibility to disabled web users.

The Visual Bible™
(Dallas, Texas)

Client—Visual Entertainment, Inc., an international film company based in Dallas, Texas.  This company filmed and released "The Gospel of John" in theaters across the USA in 1993.  This is my final version of the site before the company was bought out and used its own in-house web design staff.  I wrote content and created the site.

Book excerpt section for Marchiano Ministries site
(North Hollywood, California)

Client—Bruce Marchiano,
film and television actor and author of four books; website book excerpt section (text and photos) for two of his books; North Hollywood, California.  (I designed this site to be put into Marchiano's site as it appeared several years ago; that's why the "home" page layout is a little odd.) I selected and edited content and created this excerpt section.

Volunteer Sites

Jaguars 6th grade football

I've also created four personal websites (2000-05), including sites for my son’s football teams—for which I performed all photography (more than 400 action shots per season).

I've created written proposals for site redesign and improvements to CEOs, founders, and owners, and I've reprogrammed and edited existing sites for accuracy, clarity, usability, and consistency.  I've added full sections and created entire sites, developing content from my client’s material, marketing and communication goals, and technical web specifications.
