Website Design for The Genesis Group
The Genesis Group of the Mohawk Valley region is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting business and communtiy activity. There previous site was bland and out of date by almost seven years.

Website Design for Lake Front Restaurant
The Lake Front Restaurant is a small business on Lake Otsego, NY that has been around for over fifty years and their website certainly showed it.

The site was created with HTML4, CSS3 and JQuery with a responsive layout as well as numerous image galleries. You can view the site online at www.lakefrontcooperstown.com.
Website Design for Mark's Custom Trailers
Development In Progress

I designed the entire look and feel of this site, as well as the logo and banner images, for this new business. The site is being designed with mobile and tablet devices in mind with a fully responsive layout. This project is still in development but you can view the test site here.

3D Recreation of the painting 'Still-Life with Gilt Goblet' by HEDA, Willem Claesz
For this project I tried to recreate a still life painting in a 3D environment using Autodesk Maya and Adobe Photoshop. The main challenege here being that the original painting might not have been 100% accurate so some liberties had to be taken in regards to lighting, proportion, and perspective to ensure the rendering and the painting looked identical. The painting referenced was ''Still Life with Gilt Goblet'' by William Claesz.
