Work Done

I am currently the site administrator for, a community-based website for professional flower designers and flower enthusiasts. I am responsible for basic maintainance (ie. adding new copy, swapping out images, solving design issues, etc.), customer service, eCommerce fulfillment, creating and sending weekly and monthly mass emails, handling multiple banner ads/clients, and much more. Since we began, uBloom’s community has grown to over 6,700 members!

I designed and built this website for The Corner Record Shop, a “local” music store with locations in both Grandville, MI and Kalamazoo, MI. Features include a weekly blog showcasing new music arrivals, a calendar of events promoting local music happenings, a news page, a music player highlighting a given week’s choice album, a detailed page dedicated to the extremely busy repair shop, and other cool stuff! Rock…

I helped out a friend with work on this website for Blue Chip Farm Investments, a company specializing in agricultural businesses and farm management/investing. Most of the work involved layout issues, organization, content upload and basic plug-in/theme manipulation. Simple, clean and effective!

This one is near and dear…I designed and built this website for my uncle, Don Tigchelaar, owner of Don’s BP Service. It is one of the few remaining “full serve” gas stations in West Michigan, and the only one in Grand Rapids, MI. It was originally owned by my grandpa, who first opened in the early 1950s. It’s fairly nostalgic and focuses on services provided, the employees and the history of this fine establishment!

I currently handle the fulfillment for orders placed on! Some seriously amazing stuff…The videos are top notch and visually stunning. Rob commands your attention and holds it…I am privileged to be a part, albeit small, of his ministry!
