Website design and development for a Houston-based therapist.
Soul Connect Houston came to me looking for a website that could 1) represent their services online, 2) collect subscribers for their weekly email newsletter, 3) manage sign ups and billing for their monthly subscription service, and 4) sell registrations for virtual and in-person events. This website needed to be easy for site visitors to navigate and understand in order to close sales and create a functional tool for promoting events to the world.
Socal Teen Camp is an awesome Christian summer camp for teens around Southern California that takes place every year in Idyllwild, California. Socal Teen Camp needed a summer camp website designed that communicated information about the logistics of camp, captured camper registrations and payments, and allowed the camp directors to broadcast important information such as packing lists, last minute announcements, and more. Check out this awesome summer camp website in action here >> or scroll down to scope out the home page.
King Construction is a local Malibu builder who meticulously crafts fine living spaces from scratch or remodels from an existing plan. They needed a website to showcase their beautiful work, tell their 40-year story, and explain the services they offer.
What I developed was a beautiful Squarespace website that invites site visitors into easy-to-navigate galleries for virtual tours of the many homes King Construction has built.

It was so much fun to build this website for Malibu yoga teacher Natalie Backman! Natalie teaches a light-hearted and soulful practice that fluidly evokes the calming effects of the ocean. So what better place to photograph her work than at the world-famous El Matador Beach!
Natalie's website is based on beautiful photos and cheerful pops of yellow to invite website visitors to subscribe to her newsletter, sign up for virtual classes, and learn more about her international yoga retreats.
With class descriptions and links to her recorded classes on YouTube, this website connects Natalie's social media presence with her home on the web. Check out the home page in detail below or click here to view the live website and click around between the pages >>
It was an honor to develop this beautiful and functional website for one of Malibu's beloved yoga teachers. Namaste Natalie!!
** The website was built using Wix, one of the many browser-based website builders that I use. My philosophy for building websites is that you (the owner) should feel comfortable making updates and simple edits (think text and images) to the website and not need to hire me for every little update need. To that end, every website project I do concludes with a "pass off" meeting during which I screen share with you and show you the nuts and bolts of logging in, posting to your blog (if your website has a blog), and making basic edits. If you're in need of a brand new website or long overdue for some edits to your existing website, shoot me an email and let's talk >> email@example.com
John Brenkus, former host of ESPN's Sport Science, is working on an exciting new project: Soul & Science. In each episode, Brenkus explores the intangible (soul) and tangible (science) aspects of elite human performance and beyond.
Soul & Science needed a home on the web to compile Brenkus' growing body of work, and this is that website (below).

The church website for University Church of Christ in Malibu, California was so much fun to build because this community is near and dear to my heart. This church is my home and my community and the crowd of people that I laugh with, live alongside, worship with, gather with, celebrate with, and kick it on the weekends with.
This church website was designed to be a home on the web, showcasing details about University Church's regular meetings, sign ups for small groups, applications for student jobs, and to share a little taste of what it's like to be in community with this awesome church in Malibu, California.
Since this has been my church home for the last nine years, I had bunches of beautiful photos to choose from that showcase the authentic feelings and the aesthetic beauty of our community nestled on the coast of southern California.
Scroll through the screenshot of the UCC Malibu website home page below, or click over to the live website to see the functions, such as embedded newsletter sign up, recruiting students for student worker staff positions, and even a spiritual life blog that was started by some students on the ministry team.
** This website was built using Weebly, one of the many browser-based website builders I regularly use to design beautiful and useful websites for my clients. All the websites I build are optimized for desktop and mobile browsing, and part of the website package is a final meeting with me where I hand over the keys and show you how to login and make changes to your website, such as updating photos and changing text. I believe that your business should have a website that you love AND that you're able to edit AND it shouldn't break the bank. If you're looking for a brand new website or updates to an existing website, shoot me an email and let's talk >> firstname.lastname@example.org
When the Honey & Oak team reached out to me with a concept for an online boutique that changes product & theme every month, I was hooked. Their concept is simple and elegant: a limited selection of one-of-a-kind handmade or found (curated) items. Each collection is cohesive and fits the overall theme, which changes seasonally. Take a look at Honey & Oak's home page now... you never know what you might find!
Ventura County Military Collaborative is a nonprofit organization that serves active duty and veteran service members in Ventura County. They offer resources, networking opportunities, advising, legal council, relief and even annual community events to the men and women who serve our country.
The site also features live feeds from each of Taylor's social media accounts, and a media page packed with easy downloadables.
Lauren then went on to print business cards with the new website url, and wrap them up as a stocking stuffer for Taylor to open on Christmas Eve. I'd say Lauren gets the wife of the year award.
Like all websites I build, this site is responsive (meaning it resizes and reformats when the browser window is resized for a narrow screen).
