Odds & Ends

So my degree is in Advertising. I've worked as a copywriter (CMG Worldwide), marketing manager (PreferredPartner), illustrator (John Wiley & Sons), and web production specialist (also at Wiley)... with that sort of varied and dynamic business and creative background, sometimes projects don't fall too neatly into just one work example grouping. This is where those shall go. Interactive prototypes, eLearning components, advertisements and features/ads for websites, are just a sampling of these sorts of "Odds & Ends" projects. Some have become actual works for Wiley Publishing, somewhere just prototype ideas I've had to help achieve business goals. Bottom line, I love to learn, I love to create, and I love to do it well. I love the work I do.

I developed the prototype widget, which was then approved for use in For Dummies eLearning programs. They have been created for many titles, such as Office 2013 and Excel 2013.

This "Newsletter Creator" is a tool I made for the Online Content Editors at Wiley. They fill in information for their weekly Dummies.com newsletter assignments and this form outputs an email-ready HTML file for me and my colleagures to deploy.
