Mind in Motion Online is an internationally renowned online graduate school developed by Larry Goldfarb, to enhance the Feldenkrais Method® trainings established by him in the 1980's. It's essentially a distance-learning membership site, an online and live course registration platform, based on the popular BuddyBoss platform for Wordpress. I implemented iMember360 to integrate the Keap/Infusionsoft marketing/CRM database, and a number of custom enhancements to the core Wordpress application. There are two sub-sites in the infrastructure: one that integrates a multimedia Library for distributing video, audio and print documents to students, dependent on their level in the school, over the AWS Cloudfront CDN; the second is a "Lesson Locator" for all Feldenkrais Method® students, independent of their involvement in the MIMO school.
Photonmetrics is a small company that makes photovoltaic and climatic monitoring software and hardware sensors primarily for Earthship-based research on autonomous homes. I myself own an Earthship, and was recruited to build the frontend applications for realtime delivery of statistical data to end-users.
As this project is ongoing, the lastest iterations involve transfer of data charts from a proprietary logging/charting matrix to Django REST Framework , and displaying streaming charts in a React-based front end UI.
MovementLab's site is a rebuild for dance, yoga and wellness teacher, Nadine Lollino. I upgraded her Wordpress to incorporate a subcription-based online yoga studio at the beginning of the pandemic lockdowns in 2020, enabling her to continue teaching her students nationwide and internationally. The site has a variety of subscription and drop in class offerings, as well as a video library of all the classes she records, which are also offered on a subscription basis.I additionally implemented an online radio station to broadcast CD-quality audio for Nadine's Zoom-based dance classes, while all the dance studios in town were closed for over a year.
Rivera Sun is a change-maker, a cultural creative, a protest novelist, and an advocate for nonviolence and social justice. She is the author of The Dandelion Insurrection,The Way Between and other novels. She is the editor of Nonviolence News. Her study guide to making change with nonviolent action is used by activist groups across the country. Her essays and writings are syndicated by Peace Voice, and have appeared in journals nationwide. I helped redesign and deploy Rivera's site, after an audit of the site and store framework she was using, then rebuilt her main blog site, and integrated a Shopify-based bookstore, which has been a big step up for sales and shipping of her writings.

Trey Donovan made my dream for a Soul of Sicily cooking school website a reality. His enthusiasm, passion and attention to detail helped to make the project a success. His work combines the structural with the creative, and the results he produced exceeded my expectations.
