My goal is to build fast, mobile-first websites that clearly communicate with visitors.
Accessible websites that look great on any screen.
Sustainable projects that are well documented & easy to maintain.
Well supported CMSs and Frameworks - from custom theme & plugin development, to implementation & administration.
Let's build together

Michael James Murray's Cinematography Portfolio
Michael James Murray's website was built using roots.io (now Sage). The minimal asthetic allows his cinematography to take center stage. Work on this site has inspired me to expand on the functionality of my Vimeo Simple API Shortcode - WordPress Plugin.
Note: Some portions of MJM's site link to material outside of the WordPress theme built for the project.
Vagrant config for Omeka - A configuration for launching an Omeka development environment. Omeka is a CMS that is primarily used for "library, museum, archives, and scholarly collections and exhibitions".
