Websites Created by Bullfrog Labs
These are the websites that I have created professionally for either myself
or others. All of the sites are live on the Internet, and can be visited by

Balfour Baptist Church
In the spring of 2013 I was nearing the end of my education at AB-Tech. One of the final hurdles I had to overcome was that of the dreaded Capstone Project. For this project I decided I was going to redesign the website for Balfour Baptist Church (initially coded in the summer of 2011) to better suit the church's changing needs.
The requirements for the project were sparse, so it left plenty of room for me to implement the functionality needed by Balfour without getting mired in coursework technicalities. The feature I am most proud of is the fancyBox modal windows that utilize both client-side and server-side validation (through ajax calls) to validate form data. Other features of note include an interactive events calendar, a member-maintained prayer request list, and a custom content management system.
I have always had a passion for video games, and I have spent a great deal of time taking in-game screenshots and generating maps for various games. It took me a while, but I eventually realized that there was nothing stopping me from creating a website and sharing these maps with the rest of the video gaming world. Thus, Retro Walkthroughs was born.
Retro Walkthroughs as served as a sort of coding playground for me. With the only client of the site being myself, I have been able to let my creativity loose. The site is currently in its 7th (?) revision, and the design is constantly changing as I learn new and interesting techniques to try out. Currently, Retro Walkthroughs is in its Drupal phase.
Asheville Tax Professionals
The website of Asheville Tax Professionals is the first site I have worked on that I inherited from someone else (table-based layout and all). The site is built using the Joomla content management system and was originally designed by Cube Creative.
The part of this site that I am most proud of is the code used on the home page to show recent Facebook and Twitter posts. There were a number ready-made plugins available for this purpose, but few had customization options and none could be integrated into the site as seamlessly as the client wanted. I learned a lot about the Facebook and Twitter API’s, as well as the inner workings of the North Carolina tax code.
