The Internet has turned writers and producers into content providers and I’m just fine with that. Every publication that I write for has a web-based component. Everything I write and produce exists in a digital format, the web is just another set of channels.
Architecture and Design
I own the copyright for most of the design-based pieces I’ve written over the years. I’ve taken my favorites, tracked down images and turned them into web-based copy that I publish on DesignPOV.com. My “point of view” is reflected on the site as in many cases I publish original and/or alternate versions of what is published in the mainstream media. There’s also short pieces, blog links, architectural travel videos and other bonus material.
Manage My Life Sears – Sears recently jumped onto the interactive portion of the world wide web with a site designed to provide you with answers to everyday questions.

I used the event to produce a full-length educational video as well as a series of short pieces for HGTV-Pro

At the National Capital Planning Commission, I write and produce the monthly electronic newsletter. I also update the agency Facebook page and monitor interactions. I constructed the NCPCdotGov YouTube channel and regularly post videos and write the descriptions.
