Tai Chi Healing Music

Tai Chi Healing Music is a great way to relax

It’s been ten years since I began this project. I guess it’s time to start promoting it. Tai Chi Chuan is an internal Chinese martial art that helps develop agility, balance, relaxation, and much more. As a musician, I wanted to find a way to combine my passion for music with the healing power of Tai Chi.

Free WordPress Theme “MEM Core” released

Word­Press is a pop­u­lar, open-source, Con­tent Man­age­ment Sys­tem built by hun­dreds of com­mu­nity vol­un­teers around the world. Although, I’ve been devel­op­ing Word­Press Themes for years, I finally got around to releas­ing my first free WordPress Theme for pub­lic use. I call it MEM Core which is short for “Middle Ear Media Core” because I plan on creating many child Themes for it. Each child Theme will inherit the functionality of MEM Core, and will modify, or add to it in different ways.

HTML5 To-do List

I’ve been tinkering around with HTML5 lately, and decided to create a simple HTML5 to-do list to demonstrate some of the new features. Along the way, I realized which features would be most useful and added them. At some point, probably after hammering out the style sheet, it became clear that this was now more than a to-do list, it was a Task Management App.

Full Disclosure: I normally make my to-do lists with pen and paper, but I’ve been using this one for several months now and really enjoy the interface.

Protecting the Upper Peninsula from unsustainable development, degradation and dangerous contamination

Save The Wild UP is a non profit organization that operates in the Marquette area. Through public awareness and education they strive to protect the Upper Peninsula of Michigan from unsustainable development, degradation and dangerous contamination. Their original web site was designed in 2007 and had been modified numerous times since. It was in need of a major overhaul both in terms of user experience as well as content management. I redesigned their site to solve both of these issues.

Chris Potter shares his Photo a Day project

Chris Pot­ter recently had me redesign his photography web site. The old site was in a blog format and contained his “photo a day” project, where he added a new photo each day for an entire year. For the redesign, he wanted to feature these photos prominently and make it easier to view all 365 of them. I took all of these images and combined them into one slideshow gallery. Then I framed the entire gallery in what looks like a view screen on the back of a camera.

Tamarack Custom Builders get a custom designed website

Tamarack Custom Builders are known for applying sustainable ideas to their custom built homes and remodels. Owner Mike Potts and his talented crew were some of the first in the Marquette area to embrace green and sustainable building techniques. I designed and developed a web site for Tamarack Custom Builders earlier this year. The site includes a blog, a section to showcase the various projects they’ve done, and of course the usual information about and methods to make contact with them.

Dead River has a pretty good cup of coffee

I’m very pleased to announce the roll out of an e-commerce website for Dead River Coffee. They are located downtown Marquette, Michigan and are the area’s premiere coffee roasters. Go ahead, ask anybody. For years, the only way to get your hands on their fresh roasted coffee beans was to drive down to their shop and pick it up. Now this great coffee is available to the world at the click of a button.
