Portfolio

Sometimes individually and sometimes as part of a larger team, these are the sites that have been of mutual benefit to clients and my own experience and talents offered to you, here, today.

Many of the sites listed are still live and available as of this posting (unless other-wise noted) and have been, over the years, handed back to the owners and are under their maintenance. Often, the current coding and graphics are the original, in others, much (and sometimes all) of the presentations have been re-built, but links are included as references. If you have any questions concerning any of the sites listed, please feel free to contact me at your leisure.

The very first web-site I created was as a team-member working for Chemical Bank, Wall Street, New York City. Given nothing more than 2 boxes containing many pages of photo-copied information, 1 box containing "coding" samples and the other, pages of lay-outs and designs, I worked with the others over a period of many months until, at last, we'd built Chemical's first "Intranet". The site was for "in-house" use and contained, for example, a data-base (which I'd created previously) of every employee around the world. It was then expanded to include e-mail and "Community Boards" for every employee in the organisation.

As time progressed and the "Internet" increasingly became more common in general house-holds, the Chemical "Intranet" site was introduced to the general public and included information and access to accounts.

Chemical was the third-largest bank in the United States*.

In the years since 1995, I have had the privilege and delight to have worked on and created many other sites, including the following:

Mr. G's Round Hill Lodge NY
"Mr G's"... Quite the legendary, early 1970's resort in the Hudson Valley region of New York State. This site was built as a memorial and "homage" to the halcyon days of music, dancing and camaraderie shared by all who were fortunate enough to sojourn there. All manner of images are original as well as text content. It's an honour and privilege to have built and to continue maintaining this site which was launched in March 2018.

The “Transfusion Safety” site of V.I. Technologies was created completely by the team at Winstar Communications NYC and included original art, graphics, ASP coding, content and Quality Assurance.

• The following sites were created from concept through launch:

Aaronel deRoy Gruber
Participation in this pre-built site included constant, general maintenance and original graphics. Images of the owner’s works were original photography, manipulated, where necessary, using Adobe PhotoShop for inclusion on the site.
BroadwayBeat
The original "Broadway Beat" site was the Internet sister for a New York City cable network news programme dedicated to the theatre, cabaret and other entertainment venues of New York. The programme was created by Mr. Bradshaw Smith and since his death, his archives are now a major faction of the NYU library. (Credit appeared on the site until it was discontinued due to the unexpected and untimely death of the owner.) *The domain: bradwaybeat.com has since been re-purchase, bearing no resemblance to the original.
Indulgence-Lab
All manner of format, text content and graphics were my own original works, created from concept through launch. This site has been transitioned to the owner.
TennieLeonard
On Ms. Leonard's original site, all manner of format, text content and graphics were my own original works, created from concept through launch including photographs and portraits. This site was transitioned to the owner and is currently being maintained by another maintenance provider, however, much of the photographic works are from the originals, taken by me, for the original site.

• The following sites were acquired for upgrade and maintenance and subsequently returned to the domain owners and are presently being maintained by other providers.
