In February of 1996, he uploaded several pages featuring news events, a section on Forest Park and an interactive map of the downtown area and metropolitan area. The St. Louis Fine Restaurant Guide, St. Louis Hotels Guide and St. Louis Attractions. and Southwest Illinois News soon followed. He also designed and maintained the initial award winning web site for the Missouri History Museum, in addition to web sites for the City of Fairview Heights, IL and the Lewis and Clark State Historical Site in Hartford, IL, the Mathews-Dickey Boys' & Girls' Club, the St. Louis Boundary Commission, Advance St. Louis and the Bissell Mansion Restaurant and Dinner Theatre.
