About Moonshell Productions

Solely Owned & Operated By Dana Kester-McCabe Since 1980

imageLocated on Maryland's Eastern Shore, Moonshell Productions specializes in websites for local small nonprofit and commercial organizations, and online videos. Logo design and marketing consultation services are also available.

The name of Moonshell Productions was inspired in part by the moon shell section of the book "Gift From The Sea" by Anne Morrow Lindberg. The author describes how a personal spiritual journey can and should inspire us to live lives of service, integrity, and compassion.

My business philosophy is to live into that idea, to do work that helps build a better world, and to always reach for a high standard of excellence. The Moonshell logo symbolizes service and community.

Moonshell Productions also is the publisher of Delmarva Almanac an online magazine celebrating the Delmarva Peninsula. We have a number of contributors assisting in this work including:
