Weddings, Fine Art, Portraiture, Sustainable Farming and more..
This client needed a new face on her web site. The quality of the images just didn't come through.  I used Visual Light Box, a very nice jQuery product, to allow high quality images to be rendered on several of her pages.
Lomi Lomi and Esalen Massage
Originally, this client's site was a freebie from Go Daddy - complete and resplendent with advertisements for Go Daddy. What is in place now is a (recent) second iteration, using jQuery for overlays.
The client is happy with the new design, saying that it is very exotic. And it should be — have you ever received a Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage?
Community activist, teacher, papermaker, seamstress extraordinaire.
When she's not busy with community issues, Halle does amazing things with cloth and paper. Her site initially consisted of a jpeg rendering of a newspaper article,sort of thrown up onto the web. She now has a colorful and quirky site, that sort of reflects her joie de vivre.

Band leader - Wild Unknown
Geno was having trouble getting his webmaster to update his site; in mid-May the home page still referenced an upcoming concert the previous January. I took over the site, redesigned it, and keep it up-to-date.
Organic farming, honey, bees and equipment
Our Green Thumb Farm has gone through a number of iterations; their website initially was focused on Welsh Ponies. While Linda and Neil still have a couple of these ponies, the website now represents their farm and volunteer activities, and their extraordinary honey.

Children's book, cards, prints, stickers
This was an interesting website for me - Rachel wrote a children's book and needed someone to build a website to showcase it. And provide a link to PayPal for shopping cart functionality. She gave me photoshop images of what she wanted done; I converted them into web pages. It worked out well.

Twin Cities-based landscaping and gardening.
I took over maintaining this site in 2010. Claudia and Monica needed a testimonials page set up, and better images to show off their work

John Roy's 3D montages of Americana.
You get on your motorcycle. Head out on a secondary highway, not the interstate. When you come across a beat up old car, truck, or building, take a bunch of pictures. When you get back home, construct a 3D montage out of them. Latest project: old cemeteries on the U.S. east coast.

Privately commissioned histories, public books, published articles
I took over maintenance of this site in 2010, and have added content related to private commissioned work, as well as interview content.

Actor, director, stunt/fight director, video producer
Peter Moore is a Minneapolis-based actor who needed a web site for examples of his work, and his resumes.

Rock n' roll musician, singer, songwriter
This client had an unfinished web site, that had been in that state for a few years. He was basically paying for hosting and a domain name, and not getting anything for his money. He had a fellow "working on it" who never got around to working on it. Taking what he had in place, I built a new site for him.
This was a simple, easy-to-create site used to advertise the client's virtual assistant services.

Nightclub singer, song writer, musician, actor
Jack made a transition a few years back from country western singer to nightclub singer — this change required a website facelift.
..because I'm Keith Jr.
Junk mail, getting AARP invitations when I was 32, confusion about passports, that sort of thing. Still hasn't stopped, even though "Sr." passed away in 2005. However, you can reach me (not dad) at
So, what about me?
I build websites on the side.
My day job consists of web, Linux, SSL certificates, Informatica, some other stuff, all sort of mixed together. My first "on-the-side" project was a Lindy Hop non-profit organization - this turned into barter; I got free lessons, they got free web support. ..which segues to:
I started Middle Eastern folk dance in the late 80's. In the early 90's started taking swing lessons. A bit of Argentine Tango for the last 4+ years.
I'm a musician.
I've been playing guitar since I was 13. Left-handed. (And why not? I'm self-taught. BTW, dad was right-handed - NOT the same.) Over the years I've acquired some really nice guitars.
We live 20 miles out of town.
The air smells good out here. Laurie and I live on 17 acres outside of Stillwater, MN, with a few chickens here and there, 3 cats, and (at this time) 2 bee hives - new ones. We had 6, but the winter of '12-13 killed all of them. Nevertheless, we've got good honey. As close as you can get to 'organic', given the circumstances.
