I recently finished development of a new client website: Glee Gum www.gleegum.com. Drupal, PHP, and jQuery were utilized to construct this graphically intricate website. Additionally, a customized WordPress blog was built to match the website’s styling.

Verve, Inc. are the manufacturers of Glee Gum.

Verve is an independent, certified woman-owned business, dedicated to linking world communities and creatingenvironmentally and socially responsible products and activities.

Verve’s products include:
Glee Gum – all natural chewing gum
Make Your Own Chewing Gum, Chocolate, & Gummies – Educational Kits for Kids.

In 1992, the concept for Verve was born when they visited an economically depressed chicle-producing community in Northern Guatemala. Up until then, they had never really thought about how chewing gum was made. When they realized its origins, they learned that prior to the synthetic resins, chicle was the basis of the entire industry. Their goal was to support chicle-harvesting by purchasing chicle. With this goal in mind, Verve was born, and with it their first and most popular product, the Make Your Own Chewing Gum Kit.

Today, Verve provides a sustainable source of income for those communities while simultaneously offering fun, educational, and environmentally friendly activities for kids.

Verve’s pioneering Make Your Own Chewing Gum Kit has captivated the imaginations of thousands of children while helping them to learn more about the world around them. They are often used in classrooms where students are studying rainforest ecology, the history of food production, the chemistry of cooking, and the interconnections in our global community.

Nuun, pronounced “Noon,” was the first company to separate electrolyte replacement from carbohydrates. Before Nuun, if you wanted electrolytes, the result was a bottle full of sugar. With our simple, self-dissolving, sugar-free electrolyte tab, we revolutionized the sports drink forever.

Nuun was originally the brainchild of a student and professor from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College. An avid cyclist, he longed for a lightweight, easy to use hydration method that didn’t include a sticky high-calorie mess. His research led to the creation of a sugarless, dissolvable, and portable tablet called Nuun.

Eight years later, Nuun Active Hydration is the #1 selling sports drink tab in the cycling, running and outdoor specialty marketplaces. As education about hydration and wellness grows, Nuun has become more accessible to a wider range of people. In response, Nuun has expanded its product line from sports performance hydration to include two all natural, vitamin-enhanced products for every day use, Nuun All Day Hydration and U Natural Hydration.

Be it a bike ride, a long day at the office, or a day at home juggling kids, Nuun has a tablet and flavor customized to help you stay healthy and hydrated.

Nuun and Company is based in Seattle, WA. Nuun is sold in over 5000 outlets in the U.S. and available in over 30 countries.


Having just attended SpringOne2Gx in Chicago, I’m very excited about Groovy and Grails for web application development. I see this platform as a very solid stack for which to build next generation JVM web applications.
