Intro to Arboriculture

I spearheaded the HTML5 update to ISA’s award-winning award-winning, interactive training series (“Intro to Arboriculture”), which was previously only available through CD-ROMs or in Flash format. Before I came to the project, the ISA had been struggling to update their legacy content. They had tasked a handful of instructional designers who failed to clean the Flash code. With proper planning … Read More

Russo | Wiki

My teaching wiki provides a lot of room for getting creative with syllabuses. I can add images, bits of color, and adjust the fonts to fit class themes.

It’s old-school design. ♡ It’s forever a pleasure working with professional food … Read More

Harvest Bistro

I also established their webpresence — hooking the Harvest site into Yelp, TripAdvisor, and the most popular review services. Unfortunately, Harvest Bistro didn’t last long. (I’m 99.9% certain it had nothing to do with me). The Internet Archive has a broken version of the site, without content, headers, images, or anything else worth looking at.
