Noah Malone is a Team USA paralympic athlete who competed in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, bringing home one gold and two silver medals.

Noah had fantastic photos already available, and I was able to put those to good use – always a head start for a great site.

The primary goals were to tell Noah’s story, connect fans with his upcoming Olympic competitions, and provide a platform for his book sales.

He was also interested in connecting a newletter system for direct, recurring contact with fans and potential customers. Combined with a finely tuned mobile site, I was thrilled with how this project turned out – and I definitely became a huge fan.
