Vote for Climate was an issue-based website that advocated strategic voting for ‘climate-friendly’ candidates during the 2008 Canadian federal election.
I helped implement the Flash and XML based riding selector map for this advocacy site, and also cleaned up the HTML/CSS templates to ensure style uniformity throughout the site. I also implemented form processing using PHP.
From December 2004 to February 2008, I was responsible for web design and content management for official website of the Department of National Defence / Canadian Forces. During this time, I was involved with:
Converting website from table-based layout to standards-based design based on W3C guidelines
Designing web page templates, complying with government Common look and feel standards, and with web standards such as XHTML, CSS, and accessibility

Advising management on best use of internet technology to keep site current with evolving standards, and to improve funcionality and accessibility
