PurinaCare Pet Health Library

PurinaCare Pet Health LibraryMy most recent project is pretty exciting. I had the opportunity to work with PurinaCare (the insurance division of Purina). They wanted to increase visitor interaction on their site. So, what better way to encourage people to explore your site than offering a TON of really awesome content?

I actually just started working for Animal Care Technologies and this was my first project. We were able to come up with an entire library of articles & videos related to pet health and breeds. We tied all of the content together pretty intelligently by providing users with related information, popular content, a pretty intuitive search engine, and of course the automation of much of the work being done on the site.

If you’re looking for a new pet or want to learn more about your pet, then this new resource is your one-stop shop. I think you’ll like it.

We Are Microsoft 2009


Last year was the first annual We Are Microsoft charity event. I was able to be a part of the start of a great organization that seeks to develop websites and applications for non-profits in the matter of one weekend. Basically the weekend requires a lot of planning on the part of the event coordinators and the coders/designers just show up on Friday and begin work with the goal to finish by Sunday afternoon.

The charity I’ll be working with is the Children’s Chorus of Greater Dallas. View a list of all of the charities involved.

It’s no easy feat, but it’s amazing what can be accomplished when you have a deadline and the motivation to help out those who spend their whole lives helping others.

The only downside for me is that I’m not a Microsoft enthusiast. But, in the end, I’m a designer for the weekend and it really matters to the developers and there are some really talented developers that can utilize Microsoft programming and products to accomplish what it is these charities need.

It would be awesome if there was another event in Dallas with the same goal, but non-Microsoft focused. I’m challenging YOU to start that up. Thank you.
