This is a list of current and past projects.

Canadian Paraplegic Association Ontario: Accessibility

CPA Ontario's mission is to assist persons with spinal cord injuries and other physical disabilities to achieve independence self-reliance and full community participation. They were founded after WWII by vets with spinal cord injuries.

Their site serves as a vehicle for outreach and also maintaining communication with their membership. I began working with CPA Ontario in March 2008. They were hosted on a proprietary system that was slow, expensive to host, inflexible and expensive to make changes to.

Rock Ridge Sport Horses: A Small Business Site

Rock ridge sport horses is a small family-run farm that provides breeding training and boarding services and also has quality horses for sale. It's owned and run by my sister Jenn and her husband Paul. You might have seen me wearing their sweatshirts. I created this site on my own initiative for them. I don't usually do this because if a website iniative doesn't come from the client then they're usually not interested enough to make it work. But family is like that and I got a couple of chickens out of the deal.


Telecentre.org is a project of IDRC with the goal of encouraging and supporting "telecentre communities". A telecentre is the developing countries' version of a internet cafe or library - a place where you can go for internet access. The main telecentre.org website describes itself as a community of people and organizations working together to improve the social and economic impact of grassroots telecentres. In January 2006 I was approached by Mark Surman to help out with their Drupal site that had been set up the previous year.

Pedestrian Sundays at Kensington: Action Apps conversion and hosting

Pedestrian Sundays in Kensington Market is a car-free monthly event in Toronto's Kensington market during the summers. It's been running for a few years now one of many grassroots take-back-the-streets type events that are springing up. I was approached to help out in early 2007 by Yvonne Bambrick who coordinates the website. The site then was being hosted and developed by Jason Diceman who was going to Venezuela and the implementation in Action Apps wasn't quite working for them.

Fair Vote Canada: CiviCRM Implementation and Support

Visit the website: http://www.fairvote.ca/ Fair Vote Canada is a small NGO has been around for about 7 years and is a public interest lobby group for proportional representation-type voting systems in Canada. If you care about democracy then they're worth supporting. In April 2008 I helped Fair Vote Canada with a re-implementation of CiviCRM to manage their donations membership and communication with their constituents. See this case study for a detailed look at that process.

One of the challenges was to set up a bilingual Drupal site, with the French site having original content and a different structure to the English site. Full access to the content requires registration and logging into one site must give access to both language sites.

The Maquila Solidarity Network (MSN) is a labour and women's rights organization that supports the efforts of workers in global supply chains to win improved wages and working conditions and a better quality of life. They're based in Toronto, and have been around since the early 1990s.

The project was to move their constituent management from a collection of desktop systems to CiviCRM.
