El Portal Fire

The El Portal Fire, just outside the western entrance to Yosemite National Park, started early in the day Saturday 7/26/14. By afternoon it had grown to a large fire that threatened our neighborhood in El Portal’s NPS housing area. As we prepared for possible evacuation on Saturday, I took photos and video with my iPhone when I had the opportunity. Early on Sunday I took my camera (Canon 7D) to a location near our apartment where firefighting helicopters filled their tanks. I shot a couple hours worth of HD video. I had posted several videos to Instagram, and YouTube, and shortly afterward was contacted by ABC, and NBC asking for permission to use my video for their broadcasts.

New Website in the Works

Screen Shot 2014-09-07 at 9.10.40 AMI have been very busy working on new websites and a variety of other graphic design projects for Design Studio. You can see the new website design (in progress) that I am doing for this company here.

I have over 20 years of experience working in web design. Yes, that means I was designing websites in the very first couple of years that the internet became public. I worked with HTML sites when they were simple. Over the years I have designed may HTML 4 sites, and now HTML 5. I have also worked with Custom CSS integrated into those sites. In recent years Content Management software like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal have come along, and I have designed and managed quite a few sites using those CMS tools. In other words … I have kept up with the trends in website design and content management software. I’m confident that I can help you in that area no matter what your needs are.
