Web Features

I was asked to write a web feature about the Atlanta stop of the 'Bury the Hatchet' tour.  The feature includes an introduction, photos, videos and interviews.

Brookhaven Beer Festival Site Redesign

I worked as part of a team to identify a web site that had significant issues with their web design and functionality.  We compared it to other similar sites and created a SWOT analysis to site design.  As a result, we created this proposal for a total overhaul to the site.  It demonstrates analytical, marketing and document creation skills.
