A Little Bit About Me

While studying graphic design in South Florida, I took a web design class as one of my electives. Needless to say, I was hooked. After over ten years in the web development industry, I'm still just as thrilled every time a complete idea comes together on the screen. Over the years, I've worked in many different roles. Whether it's creating immersive websites, building out games, writing frameworks, or coding CMS systems, I am always pushing myself to use the latest technology to create high end solutions that excell in both form and function.

Past Work

Over the years, I have had the priviledge to work with many great clients. Here is a short list of the clients I've worked with at various companies, or by myself.

Web Development

In addition to doing client work at companies, I have also built out numerous solutions and products at home in my spare time. I am an Elite author at the Envato Marketplaces, and have also contributed to their tutorial sites.

Game Development

My love of games brought me into the gaming space several years ago. I've been working with Poptropica for almost three years. I built "Friends", which brought a social component to the game and allowed players to add friends, view profiles, and join common multiplayer rooms using Flash Media Server.

I also helped to rebuild the entire game in Flash Builder so that it could be published both to the web and also for mobile devices. The iPad version of the game was released in 2014, and quickly became one of the top downloaded games in the Apple store.

Social Integration

Nowadays, it's more important than ever to connect your websites to social sites like FaceBook, Twitter, YouTube, and SoundCloud. It is for this reason that I built Presence, an HTML / JavaScript / PHP / MySQL framework that allows for quick creation of websites with social APIs already built in.

One Take Jam is an example site that I built using the framework. It lets users log in using FaceBook, upload videos from YouTube, vote on other videos, talk in Forums, and alot more...
