Filmed and produced Jesus Is My Owner book presentation in Final Cut Pro X

It has been such a big help to have Daniel Brinneman on board to enhance the value and appearance of our book – “Jesus Is My Owner.” His expertise at photography has magnified the content to make it more understandable. Daniel has a lot of patience to fit the pictures and maps in just the right places. He has helped to make it possible for the reader to understand geographically where the story is taking place. I would recommend Daniel, for anyone who wants to have his or her book or writing be helped by pictures or maps, to take advantage of Daniel’s skills.

2013 – Present

Almost six months, a collaborative project to build a new custom responsive WordPress theme for them. They found me on LinkedIn and reached out. I met them in person halfway to Hickory and we worked together from then on to make their custom WordPress theme design that lasted until March 2017 when the site was moved to a new host with a new look. Since 2014, I’ve done more work for them in the design, a homepage redesign, custom page templates, Google Apps (now G Suite) email setup, tech support, hosting and email support, fortifying the install, installed a learning management system and worked with the original developers to have it modified for our needs. Installed SSL certificate for this site. Built a custom Google Maps map using the Javascript API v.3 and it pulled locations from a custom post type and another developer built the ZIP code locator. I also had to move their entire website between two hosting companies and I did all the footwork with the tech supports on both sides to find a good arrangement. I’ve truly enjoyed working with them. Currently managing Bugsbite G Suite,, and email/ VPS tech support.

Daniel is a unique mind with a great deal of skill when it comes to developing WordPress sites. He is on top of the newest developments and does a fantastic job of making the highly technical both understandable and accessible for us as clients.

Laci LeBlanc, Marketing Director at The Mosquito Authority

Daniel has an amazing skill set when it comes to web development and just about anything IT. I can bring him a problem and he comes back with a solution, no questions asked. Highly recommended from our company.

Brock Bumgarner, Sr. Project Manager at TMA Franchise System, Inc.

Daniel is a great person to work with, bringing expert knowledge, integrity and a very easy to work with approach. In each of my interactions with Daniel, he, myself and the teams involved were able to collaborate very effectively on every project from start to finish. Additionally, Daniel delivers high-quality documentation which allows for the efficient transfer of knowledge and future training.

January 2018

Replaced Mapbox map on Contact page with custom-built Google Maps with Info Window for red pin to match Mapbox appearance using Google Maps API v3 and Javascript. They were not able to login to Mapbox or reach the original developer so it was a walled-garden situation and they wanted the map to look the same as the original and have new information in the info window. I built the code from scratch within three hours with some troubleshooting on CodePen temporarily. I’ve stored it privately in GitHub. Also ran backend backup and system updates to themes and plugins after recovering full admin menus that were hidden by two plugins by original developer.

Daniel was a great resource for the update we needed on my husband’s professional website. Starting with the initial response to our inquiry, his communication was to the point, articulate and friendly. He attended to all of our questions promptly, did the work with attention to detail and very quickly. We gladly accepted his offer to do some behind-the-scene clean-up, as well. We are very pleased with Daniel’s work and will happily recommend him.

The Mosquito Authority bought a company whose Joomla site was hacked, which I discovered while I was moving it across servers. It was a complicated mess, even for me, to figure out how to upgrade it. I recreated the responsive theme for WordPress and it had to be a private ecommerce site, so I installed WooCommerce and configured the site to be private when their users wanted to purchase products. Installed SSL certificate for this site.

True Blue Carpet Cleaning
Indian Trail NC


Matt Schmidt, of Indian Trail, North Carolina, started True Blue Carpet Cleaning and needed a website redesign. A professional business site that he could update as he needed.

From a designer’s perspective, we chose blues and cream to match his business logo and line of work. jQuery is used for the drop-down form at the top. There are review links to both the business’ Yelp and Google Places review pages. Social links to a Facebook Fan page, Twitter and an RSS feed for the blog which is hidden until there are more posts written.

During the design process, I drew out the theme on a grid and colored it. In about three weeks time, the design was done. The longest time taken, was the transfer of the domain name to my client’s account. This was another design opportunity for me to actually take my wire frames into Adobe Photoshop and build out the home page layout. In the end, CSS was used to set some of the gradients and background colors.

This was a three-month internship as a Production Designer under Dwayne Cogdill. I modified letterheads, mailers, envelopes and business cards. Cut logo mounting boards from Super Black Matte. Learned logo design techniques by using various typographic fonts.

Daniel had a good attitude, worked very hard, and was dedicated to quality. If my firm was larger I would hire Daniel to be my production manager. He is responsible and has good attention to details. After training him in various responsibilities I found him to be alert and dedicated to consistent follow through. Daniel is a team player. He is honest and forthright in his contributions. He is teachable and desires to learn and grow. I recommend Daniel, and I am happy to speak with you about him. Please don’t hesitate to call me.
