Web Application Development
Custom Web Applications
I have designed multiple custom web applications including this website. These applications were built from the ground up without the use of any base platforms or frameworks.
Code examples available upon request.
Acidity Administration System™
Acidity is an easy to use, form based, administration system that can be customized for editing information in any type of database (used for content on websites, apps, signs, menu displays, etc) without having to worry about the layout or technical details. Acidity has other key features such as: pre-built plugins for popular content types (calendars, media galleries, products, services, staff members, etc), custom plugins for database administration, user account controls, a messaging system for admin users, and top teir security protocols to protect it all.
smartGallery is being used to create the image zooms and galleries on this page.
The South Carolina Equine Park
Westfall's Texas Style BBQ
This is a custom PHP driven website with a complex integration. The website's menu and other information can be edited using Acidity Administration System™. Acidity was also integrated with two menu displays above the counter in the store for real-time updates of prices, specials, and promotional images. For example, when the price of a meal was changed in Acidity it would change on the website and on the menus in the store at the same time. I provided services in web development and design, graphic design, photography, server management, and database integration to complete this project.
SCEP - Interactive Map
Dental Care of Camden
Dental Care of Camden's custom informational website was designed in 2015. This website features photographs, directions, FAQ's, a contact us form and more. I provided services in web development and design, graphic design, photography and server management to complete this project. This was a redesign of the original drcarsondentistry.com which I designed in 2011.
Custom Themes and Extensions
I have designed custom themes and extensions for multiple platforms including WordPress and Magento.

The following themes were designed for websites built on the WordPress platform. These websites also have custom extensions to provide extened funtionallity. These themes and extensions conform to current coding standards and are mobile/accessibility friendly.
Carolina Cup - Infield Parking Availability Map
This is custom WordPress plugin designed for the Carolina Cup Racing Association. Their office was keeping track of spaces sold in a book and when a customer called to reserve a spot it was a difficult process to ensure that the space was infact available. After the implementation of this plugin an employee could click on a space in the admin panel and its availability would be changed in real time on the live website. With this added functionallity staff was able to direct customers to the parking map which showed them exactly which spaces were currently available and saved a massive amount of time for CCRA employees and customers. The map was easy to use and offered excellent functionallity including drag-to-move and zoom which also worked on mobile devices including Android and iOS.
[FWS] Image Fader for WordPress
[FWS] Image Fader is a custom WordPress plugin designed to reslove issues clients had with other image slider plugins. The main issue it solved was responsiveness to mobile devices and different screen widths, and the image fader was tested and maintained on all major browsers. The admin interface of this slider uses jQuery for its advanced features including a drag-and-drop sort of images in each fader. The slider also has a very aestheticly pleasing wide screen option that is very popular and looks great on modern themes.
David Lindsey Clothier - WordPress Theme
David Lindsey Clotheir is a high end men's clothing store in Greenwood, SC. I designed their website in 2015 using the Wordpress platform. This site was a redesign of David Lindsey's previous website which was not mobile friendly. The site now features a custom theme which is completely mobile friendly along with some updated code.
The Tack Room - Magento Theme
This is an ecommerce website designed in 2015 for The Tack Room. The website was originally designed on the NCR Retail Online ecommerce platform. I provided complete theme customization, graphic design, photography, development of extended functionallity, and consultation services to help complete this project. A few years later the platform was discontinued and I migrated the site to it's own server where it was modified to reflect the latest updates to it's base platform, Magento 1.9. A new site was built in 2019 because of the end-of-life for Magento 1.
During my time as a web developer/designer I also gained experience with graphic design. Here are some examples of projects I created using Photoshop, Illustrator, and GNU Image Manipulation Program.
I created the following product images using a combination of photography and graphic design skills gained throughout my time as a web developer/designer.
