Wordpress Websites . Marketing Graphics . Social Media Publicity
My experience in marketing and public relations came from years in retail and interior design, most recently as a marketing director for an outdoor history museum and archaeological site. During my six years at Historic Spanish Point, the museum saw a marked increase in attendance, new programs, technical upgrades, and overall community awareness. Early in 2013, I embarked on a new path to other career options and to further hone my skills, acquire fresh knowledge, and meet exciting people. Graphic Design and Website Design are what I excel and enjoy most. I invite you to view my resume and examples of my work.
I offer publicity, graphic design, and website support for many nonprofit history and preservation based organizations. Sometimes websites need to be rebuilt due to outdated Wordpress themes and page builder software. All websites need software updates, content additions, and both security and search engine optimization. Wordpress sites particularly need someone who can solve problems created by updates. I have experience with this, and can help your organization’s site with the updates it needs so you can get more members and donors.
I specialize in custom websites and social media for actors, including custom demo reels and scenes compilations.
Below are three of my clients who have also become dear friends.
Michael Wincott is a professional film and television actor with almost 40 years of experience. I have been the designer of his official website for a decade. The focus of the site is videos of his work. All video content was edited by me with his expert supervision. I also act as his social media publicist on his official Facebook page.
Film and television actor and director, Jeff Wincott recently released his directorial debut film, “Behind Bars”. I acted as the publicist for the film as well the marketing and graphics designer. Jeff is actively involved with his own social media, but I assist him as needed. I design and manage his official website.
International film and television actor, Stephen Mendel, is also a well-known voice artist. His experience includes commercials, industrial narration, audio books, video games, and animation. I design his brand new official website. Recently, Stephen guest starred on Mad Men, Sons of Anarchy, and Grey’s Anatomy.
As a nearly lifelong avocational archaeologist, I was thrilled to be contracted to manage and re-design the website of the Florida Anthropological Society and its 17 chapters. My goal is to provide web design and social media support to FAS and the chapters in order to further educate the public about Florida’s past.
A promotional and educational site for the documentary film, “Escampaba: The Kingdom of Carlos” which is the story of Mound Key, Florida. The Calusa, the indigenous people of the region, and the Estero Bay ecosystem then and now are the the stars of this amazing film by one of the foremost scholars on the subject, Theresa Schober. I was delighted to make this website for my dear friend Theresa, and will also be helping to publicise the film when it debuts on PBS very soon.
I am the Secretary of the History & Preservation Coalition of Sarasota County, a collaborative organization designed as a supporting body for the dozens of history and preservation based groups in Sarasota County. I’ve held this office since February 2007. I provide marketing advice for the members, and the Coalition, as well as graphic design and web design as needed. Our business meeting minutes are in the form of a colorful newsletter. Another service I provide to nonprofits or anyone in need of a cool newsletter.
VHI is a very active historic preservation and restoration group that supports the City of Venice Florida’s Historic Preservation Board as well as the Venice Museum and Archives. Venice Heritage volunteers have raised more than $300,000 and invested thousands of hours restoring the Lord Higel House to its original glory. Additional funds are needed to restore the interior and construct an outside, ADA-approved bathroom and access ramp. Once completed, the first floor of the house will serve as an early settler museum and welcome center.
I assist the Friends of Sarasota County History Center in many ways. I designed their website, I create program and event materials, I advise them on marketing, fundraising, and social media. This organization’s mission is to lend support to the Sarasota County Historical Resources and manages the Historical Exhibits & Education Center located inside the historic Chidsey Library building.
