Web Design and Development

My web design career began at a small agency in Defiance, Ohio back in 1998. Since then I have led the design and production of numerous corporate, personal and event websites, ranging from very simple online brochures to complex database-driven web applications. The areas and disciplines I've worked in include the following:

  • Agriculture
  • Arts and Entertainment
  • Athletics
  • Banking
  • Chambers of Commerce
  • Construction
  • Education
  • Graphic Design
  • Health and Medical
  • Home Furnishings
  • Insurance
  • Law Enforcement
  • Legal
  • Logistics
  • Manufacturing
  • Non-Profit
  • Restaurant/Food sales


I have been working in the e-learning field since 2000, spending four years designing and developing art education CD-ROMs for McGraw Hill, and the following nine years creating Flash-based online courseware for some of the largest medical and health companies in the world. As a freelancer, I have also been responsible for creating hundreds of educational modules in the following areas:

  • Corporate Training
  • Elementary Education
  • Environmental
  • Government and Military
  • Higher Education

I frequently collaborate with instructional designers, 3D animation teams, and manage other artists in order to create the highest quality e-learning product possible. I am well-versed in all aspects of courseware creation, from the initial design phase through deployment and localization, whether it be on a SCORM-compliant LMS, secure website or CD-ROM.

"I have worked with Dan since 2004, managing the projects he has developed for an international medical elearning company. Dan is a very loyal and hard-working individual who brings a unique mix of creativity, candor, focus, and an enjoyable sense of humor to every project meeting. Raw anatomical and procedural visual assets transform into tasteful graphics and designs under his direction. Dan's work is very professional and I highly recommend him and support his freelance efforts."

"I worked with Dan from the time he joined eTrinsic in 2004 until I moved on at the end of 2010. He proved quickly what a great asset he is: smart, dependable, organized, fast. I soon asked (demanded) that he be assigned to all my projects. Not only could I rely on him to produce quality work and to meet our deadlines, but I also could count on him to understand what we needed to do to meet our clients' training needs. As production manager, he put together the smallest, most efficient team we'd ever had: the quality of their work was higher, with fewer redos and a greater chance of on-time delivery. With Dan in charge, I felt more confident that we could make our customers happy. And to it all he brought a unique sense of humor that helped us keep even the most trying projects in perspective. It's a pleasure to recommend him.
