I develop hand crafted, web based applications.
A selection of websites that I have developed are listed below.
Displayed with each website is a series of icons indicating the standards adhered to, or the testing that has been performed.
Please visit this legend for a description of each icon.
Many legacy sites not listed due to contractual restrictions.
http://www.bccartoons.com/ Mr. Evans editorial cartoons have been reliably entertaining B.C. newspaper readers for many years. Bring a smile to your readers face with a current, topical and funny editorial cartoon at a very affordable rate.

http://www.ecoequity.ca/ EcoEQUITY Canada (ecoEquity) is offering a new residential energy efficient Green-Lease to owners of single family homes, including detached, semi-detached and low-rise multi-unit residential buildings. Under the ecoEquity Green-Lease homeowners can qualify to finance up to 100% of the cost of improving the energy efficiency of their homes and reduce their home's impact on the environment while at the same time decrease their total monthly energy bills.
http://www.scafighting.com/ This is a custom CMS site for a group of SCA members who wanted to post instructional articles about their medieval sword fighting. There is much under the surface of this site that warrants attention. I will be writing a full page article soon about why this site represents the state of the art of a standards compliance, accessibility, and search engine friendliness.
http://www.toxicfreecanada.ca/ Toxicfreecanada.ca is a not-for-profit society dedicated to ridding our homes, workplaces, and schools of toxins. They fight many campaigns for your right to know what is in the household products you buy everyday. I recommend everyone visit this site, subscribe to the newsletter and provide them with even modest financial support.
http://contacts.toxicfreecanada.ca/ This is a custom content management system and custom contact management system designed specifically for toxicfreecanada.ca. This system is used for administering website content, newsletters, survey data, donations tracking including charity receipts, and so much more.
http://admin.nceo.info/ For NCEO I developed an administrative website that the centre staff use on a daily basis as their primary tool for data entry and work flow administration. This is a secure site and is not publicly accessible, if you are interested in this type of site, please give me a call and I'll can walk you through a few examples.
http://data.nceo.info/ I also developed a public "Data Viewer" web site for NCEO that allows public access to the NCEO data. Visitors can use various report designers to develop flexible views of the data. This is a public website, give it a try!
NCEO is funded by the US federal government which mandates accessibility requirements for use by persons with disabilities. The subject matter of these sites is 100% concerned with education of persons with disabilities so the Accessibility requirements were set very high. Here is the feedback I received from the client:
"I wanted to thank you for the awesome work you've done on the Data Viewer. I'm especially happy that we pretty much breezed through the accessibility hurdle with our federal officer. If you hadn't stayed on top of accessibility issues from the beginning, we'd be in a pickle."

http://admin.northcentral-rrc.org/ The North Central Regional Resource Center is one of six Regional Resource Centers (RRCs) funded by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP). RRCs assist state education agencies in the systemic improvement of education programs, practices, and policies that impact infants, toddlers, children, and youth with disabilities and their families. An important role of an RRC is to identify and broker integrated solutions through ongoing state needs assessment, consultation, information dissemination, and technical assistance activities.
