I have produced a number of high-quality websites from scratch, using my project management skills to bring together content creators, site designers, technical staff and management. I am an expert at being the glue that binds a successful web project together, and have worked extensively with both internal departments and third-party web agencies. Here are some examples of my web production skills:
h2g2: As the Editor of h2g2, I was solely responsible for developing the editorial direction of the site, and I built up a seven-person content and community team from scratch, driving the project forward from start-up to success. By the start of 2001 the Director of BBC New Media was so impressed with h2g2 that his department acquired the site and my team, incorporating them into BBCi.
DHA Hub: Once it was acquired by the BBC, the technology that powered h2g2 was spun off into a separate project called DNA, a general-purpose content/community tool. I was appointed Editor of DNA, which meant I played a central role in developing h2g2 into DNA. To help with this process, I produced a DNA-based site called the DNA Hub, which described all sorts of aspects of the project, from the technology to the philosophy of running online communities.
Christopher Dresser: At the V&A I produced a website for the Christopher Dresser exhibition, liaising with site designers, coders and curators to produce a clean and successful website that met with approval from the exhibition team.
Ceramic Points of View: Also at the V&A, I produced a site in which six ceramics experts talked on video about ten different pots from the museum's collections. I worked with the curators to produce a site that enabled easy access to the videos and associated transcripts, and which fitted seamlessly into the main V&A site.
In summary, I am an experienced web manager and have produced large and small websites for a wide variety of clients, all of them to the highest standards.
