Actors Training Center

In 2020 I helped launch an online ticket sales platform for the Actors Training Center in Wilmette, IL. Since then we have expanded their online capabilities to include class registration and fundraising.

I had the distinct honor of working with one of my oldest friends, Derek Nielsen, in launching an online store dereknielsen.com for his photography brand. A portion of all sales go directly back to organizations helping to protect the delicate ecosystems represented in the photographs.

Northwestern University

I served as the lead developer on a rebuild project for the Foundations of Health Research Center at Northwestern University. Their website was severely outdated, disorganized, and not communicating the important research work they are doing. We leveraged their massive amount of content and built an agile system of organizing and displaying their research content, […]

Art & Alma’s Century Inn

An award-winning, historic steakhouse in the Chicago Suburbs with packed weekend dinner crowds deserves a strong website – an online presence that properly represents the 110-year-old restaurant which has never closed its doors despite Prohibition, riots, and structure fire. (2024 Author’s Note: sadly the Century Inn did not survive the Covid19 pandemic, and was forced […]

My wife (a professional copywriter) wrote the story, artist friends of ours contributed original illustrations, and I designed and built the parallax-scroll […]

TCS Education System

TCS Education System was in dire need of a new website, plagued with an outdated CMS and an outdated design that did a poor job of representing who they are: “a nonprofit system of colleges advancing student success and community impact.” Check out the upgraded TCS website – relaunched in 2015. “Miles is a self-motivated, […]

Dr. Joshua Moon Johnson

I developed a website for author, scholar, and activist Dr. Joshua Moon Johnson, whose new book brings to life an on-going controversy and deep personal struggle for many as he delves into same-sex relationships and Christianity.
