Reimaging a website for a chef to better connect to his audience.

I worked mainly on the development of the site but I had a chance to work on the initial design concept for the entire site. From scratch, I built a three recipe search system and a direct social feed which brings in Donal’s latest tweets, pins and instagram pics.

This project allowed me to get a better understanding of a project from start to finish as well as refining my design eye.

Wordpress CMS
Three recipe search
Social feeds
jQuery, PHP, Ajax
Designed by Unthink


This function searchs all recipes for the ingredients input by the user, this was suggested by the client. I had to create a system to search all recipes and display the relevant ones without reloading the page and to integrate it smoothly with the recipe archive page. This function uses Ajax to load the recipes after searching.

Initial Layout

I was asked to draw the initial layouts for this site to generate ideas for the wireframe stage. My sketches were influenced by sites the client had mentioned as well as elements I believed would enhance the user experience.

I am a designer-developer, working as a project lead at Dauntless. I enjoy the fusion of the creative and the technical. I love creating and implementing user-centered designs. I work closely with designers to constantly re-evaluate the design to ensure the best flow and usability. I strive daily to improve my skills and push the skills I do have to create stronger and better user experiences. At the end of the day, there is nothing like punching the air in celebration after solving a complicated problem.

I have many hobbies ballet, music, hiking, reading, drawing. I thoroughly enjoy traveling and learning new cultures, I have been to North America, Central America and all over Europe, Asia is next on my list.
