E-Scribe New Media

For several years I ran my own small software and design agency.

Some clients

I partnered with agencies and designers, and hired and managed contractors and interns. Services I provided:

  • Web application design and development
  • Desktop database solutions
  • Site overhauls
  • Code review for Django projects
  • Web development skills training
  • Third-party integrations with existing sites (e-commerce, email marketing, search)

Client stories

Hallmark Institute of Photography initially hired me to create an electronic attendance system. This included a back-end database, design of attendance kiosks with barcode scanners, and an attendance reporting system. On the strength of this work I was eventually hired as a full-time employee and stayed for over five years.

The Yiddish Book Center (largest and fastest-growing Jewish cultural organization in the US at the time) retained me as their web developer for many years. I created and maintained their web marketing and content platform, co-created with one of my design partners. Later, I assisted with their transition to a large agency by evaluating vendor proposals and creating a content migration strategy.

The Regional Technology Alliance was funded by a $600,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to increase the pace of innovation and technology commercialization in the Western Massachusetts region. They hired me and a design partner to create a portal for the organization, anchored by a deep directory of participating technologists and organizations.
