Camp Wandawega

A little Wisconsin getaway with a big history.

Originally designed and developed in 2013, a return trip to Camp Wandawega in September 2016 inspired us to revisit the project to focus on the camp’s collaborations with brands and attracting groups of visitors for company retreats, weddings, and other events. In addition, the camp’s fascinating history includes stints as a prohibition-era hideout for organized crime, a family lake resort, and even a Catholic church camp, all packed into the last 100 years in sleepy Elkhorn, Wisconsin.

  • Role: Front-end development, custom WordPress theme development
  • Design: Josh Liston and Eric Ellis for Nelson Cash
  • Launched: December 2016
  • Last updated: September 2019

About Me

I’m Matt Mesker, a senior-level front-end developer living and working in a big house on the water in lovely Lake Zurich, Illinois with my wife, daughter, and cat.

Currently, I am working remotely as a Senior Software Engineer for Parking Advisors on ParkChirp, an online parking reservation system startup.

Previously, I was a Senior Front-End Developer for Nelson Cash, both locally in Chicago and remotely out of their Portland, Oregon office. Here I worked with a wide range of clients including Google Fiber, Google Partners, Academy of Achievement, Jellyvision, and Twiggle, to name a few.

Prior to that, I was Lead Developer and Technical Director at Someoddpilot, where I worked on custom e-commerce solutions for Wolverine Worldwide’s family of footwear and apparel brands (Merrell, Chaco, Cat Footwear, and more), as well as created web presences for many Chicago cultural institutions including The Empty Bottle and Longman & Eagle.

I am currently available for full-time remote employment opportunities and interesting freelance projects.
