Since 1995, Mike has coded thousands of Web pages and launched dozens of Web sites. He's helped firms devise a Web presence from the ground up, reorganized and fine-tuned existing Web projects, and designed Web pages to fit into larger corporate sites.

By keeping abreast of new Web technologies, he's able to offer clients the best in terms of HTML coding, Web graphics, and advanced programming. With training in information design, he also makes sure the sites he designs are well organized and easy to navigate.

media icon Multimedia and Programming

Multimedia and advanced programming can be powerful additions to Web sites. Multimedia can deliver messages in new and interesting ways -- with audio, video, or 3D elements. Programming can turn Web sites from simple static billboards into two-way streets for communication.

Mike offers his clients a variety of multimedia capabilities, including digital video with QuickTime, digital audio with RealAudio, and virtual reality with QuickTime VR. His programming services include dynamic and user-specific content with Java and JavaScript as well as CGI-based features that let clients update their sites in real time.

Recent multimedia and programming projects:

  • Developed a Perl-based system for GamePro that let the magazine publish Web news remotely from the E3 Expo in May 1999.
  • Authored Refrigerator!, the first multimedia experience ever created inside a kitchen appliance. This QuickTime VR project won a third-place award in Apple Computer's "Experience the Revolution" contest.
  • Created Cloned, an online game written in JavaScript. Licensed the game to HTML Limited of the United Kingdom.
  • Provided live Web video at Berkeley's 1997 Solano Stroll street fair for Direct Network Access, Inc, an Internet service provider.
  • Wrote the voiceover and text content for a multimedia training environment for users of Private Internet Exchange (PIX) firewall software from Cisco Systems.
