Case Studies

Rita Roberts – Artist, Illustrator, Screenwriter, and Keeper of Quiet

I’ve created six websites for the many facets of the work of Rita Roberts. More recently, her work has turned to more spiritual pursuits, and even a collaboration project called “Cosmic Fixer” which bridges her art-making and meditation-quiet with my work as a Spiritual Director.

It’s been a wonderful journey helping her with the following projects:

  • Gallery-based websites to show her work in a simple and authentic way.  The art is prominent – not the “desired response” to the art.
  • The creation of the technical moving parts for an online membership based course – Understanding Clouds.  (Using Mailchimp automated emails, setting up a private facebook group, along with payment/subscription capabilities)
  • Developing her newest Cosmic Soul Circle website, featuring images of her latest work, a WooCommerce store, and integration with a Print-on-demand service for ordering, production, and shipping of prints of her work.
  • Collaboration in new conceptual framework for coaches, therapists, and healers through our combined work on CosmicFixer.com.

Jill Loftis – Astrologer and Yoga Studio Owner

Few projects, clients, and co-creative relationships stand out more than my work with Jill Loftis.  Jill is the owner of Uttara Yoga Studio in Roanoke, VA.  Her studio offers a wide variety of courses, classes, workshops, and service to the community. Jill simply points me in a direction, then gives me full reign to create.  This aspect of our work together has no doubt enhanced our own notions of “trust” when consulting with others.  She is free to curate the yoga studio of her dreams, allowing me to design intuitively and fully.

I’ve been blessed to help  with:

  • Enhancing an older website with updates and security
  • Creating regular web banners for upcoming events and highlighted classes
  • Maintaining an ever changing and growing calendar of events, along with online registration for many workshop events
  • Ongoing edits and maintenance for the Uttara Yoga Studio website
  • Creation of her Astrology website, NuitAstrology.com

Gracia Gimse McKinley – Swami
T McKinley – Interfaith Minister

From their MySpiritCommunity website:
My Spirit Community is an interfaith/interspiritual community of people who respect and embrace a variety of religious and spiritual traditions. Each spiritual journey is a mix of received tradition, mystical insight, and life experience. We provide direction and encouragement to seekers who are ready to draw upon these three elements to forge their own unique, conscious, and authentic connection to the Divine. The goal is for each of us to step into the spiritual authority that is our birthright, and place the light of Spirit in service to the world.

Gracia and T are amazing “Spiritual Love Workers” in my opinion.  I’ve been so privileged to learn from them through their work in the world.  Gracia is a Swami who serves people who consider themselves spiritual and not religious through spiritual and astrological counseling and ritual creation for weddings, home and office blessings, memorial services, baby blessings, or any significant life transition. and I’ve also had the privilege of attending her Somatic Yoga classes locally through her additional work as a Yoga Therapist.

Websites I’ve designed for them:
