What I am Working on

Canadian Red Cross

Red Cross Responsive Project: I lead the front end development on the Red Cross Canada Responsive site. We rewrote all of the markup and javascript while moving the site into the Foundation framework. The site had a huge facelift and we optimized it for speed. It even works in IE8! :)

Neighbourhood Arts Network

Angular Event Finder with Synchronized Map/List View: I lead the front end development of this sortable event finder. We needed a way to synchronize a map and list view of events based on filters chosen by the client. Angular was a natural match for the task because of its data binding capabilities.

The Neighbourhood Arts Network is an initiative of the Toronto Arts Foundation focused on community engagement and the arts in Toronto. They needed a way to present their events in a clean, engaging way.

Munk Debates

Site Refresh: I implemented the full screen responsive homepage slider and refreshed internal pages with a clean layer of CSS TLC.

The Munk Debates are the world’s preeminent public debating forum. Semi-annually, at Roy Thompson Hall the Munk Debates hosts a formal debate on highly discussed topics. Ecentricarts has been involved in the production of their website, debate polling and video editing for a number of years. They recently requested a refresh of their site.
