Although the design looks the same my personal portfolio site has gone through a major overhaul. The old site had what was "at the time" a sharp cutting edge CSS gallery, but it did not prove to have good scalability.  As my portfolio grew the process of adding new work to the site became something I dreaded to do.  It took a while to rebuild such a large site, but that is exactly what I did.  Only this time I used a content management system (CMS) called Joomla.  I have used it for many clients to allow them an easy way to take care of their own sites and realized that I could benefit from this with my own site.  The nice thing about rebuilding your portfolio is that it gives you a chance to catch up with all the technology you've learned. The image gallery needed to be more robust and needed to "look" simpler, even though it is actually quite complex.   I structured the galleries a little differently and although it looks clean and simple, in reality I have three times more work displayed then before.

O-Ten-Talla Website

Although it hasn't made it into the showcase of our work yet, we have recently launched a new project for the Girl Scout Service Unit on Signal Mountain, Tennessee.

As a Girl Scout leader I volunteered to become the Website Coordinator.  This website was created to benifit the O-Ten-Talla is a girl scout service unit of The Girl Scout Council of the Southern Appalachians.  Because I was both the developer and the client I was able to create the site very quickly because I knew what I wanted to do with it.  This will be one of those always evolving projects.

Our most recent project has just officially launched in Japan first and then globally. The website is a CMS with custom design done by Susan Jackman and an additional application created by a third party company.  OKOBAN.com is a free online global lost and found system developed by TRAVEL SENTRY. By registering the OKOBAN identification code online, owners can be automatically notified when individuals and lost and found offices find their lost items. The project was managed with team members in several states, Switzerland, India and Japan and features Flash animation done by Angela Jackman.

I've been working hard on a big project that I really want to share with you.  It's not finished, but it's the kindof project that will always be growing and evolving so it will never be truly finished.  It's a website and community for a non profit organization. STITCH features articles, blog, social networking community, forum, video, reviews, games, and so much more. But that's the technical stuff...

Every developer who works with Joomla has their own favorite, must have, extensions.  These are mine.  :)
