I worked with an "indie" hollywood studio in collaboration
with Jody Zellen in designing and building a web-based UI
to present their interview videos of the top industry game
designers on HTML5 canvas and video elements. I used ProcessingJS.
The interface featured a line-network of tags shared between the videos.
Each video was a sprite that had its own transformation matrix. Triangle collision
was also employed in order to do mouse picking with non-rectangular 2D polygons.
in addition to instance scoped members.
The company, Artifact Studios, ran way over their revision
allowance, and continued to expect work out of me long
after the contract's duration had ended. And that was the
last time I worked in Hollywood.

A minimal meme-sized ecommerce piece meant as a commentary on micropayment, web services, self-reflexivity, and recursion.
I developed two versions of this company website for my friends from ITP. They would email me still mockups showing me their designs
and I would distill that into a real site. The first site in 2006 was a lot of flash, php, and xml. The second site in 2009 is more
php and html layouts. Because the original web host did not have mysql, I built a custom CMS which rewrites an xml file to disk and constructs
its interface based on the xml structures it finds. It turned out to be great for designing custom data structures.
A map of Liverpool's Sefton Park for the Sefton Walk Park project, the
sound player will follow the trail and even catch its place when the
user jumps around in the playback controller. I'm also particularly
proud of the black and white version of the map. The map had to be
drawn from several references since neither Google, nor conceptual
maps have needed to show such a detailed level of trails in the area.

I was involved in the early stages of a collaborative web prank for art's sake, created at the
Interactive Media Department of Fabrica / Benetton during after-hours.
This site shows an embarrassingly ignorant company selling fake products to help American citizens
participate in the nation's new color-coded threat alert system. The T-Shirts, however, are actually for sale.

Working closely with faculty and students, I redesigned the cover page of ITP's website. This design was used by ITP from Winter 2002 to

For money, I worked to design / implement the first interactively functioning Bruinwalk.com, summer 2000. I ended up writing a web based
file system, user access system, and a web based pop email client with MIME attachment support and a spell check - it was quite a painful process.
The site design today still features a lot of my original structures. The back-end does not seem like it has changed much.
Site prototype for an advertising interface that the Daily Bruin newspaper would use to automate its advertising division.

I redesigned the website for the Center for Digital Arts at UCLA, taking it from Mom & Pop to something local design students
could look at. Pieces of my original layouts and graphics still remain in dark corners.
I quickly built this newsgroup/messageboard as an effort to give my fellow design students a place to voice their opinions in a truly
informal, yet public setting. People have been using it for years. The site has needed minimal maintenance, and allows the design students to
change colors, images, and titles as they please, without a password. The site provided a nice communication ground while there was a winter in
the student group efforts in our department.
The construction of this site predates the widespread popularity of reusable forums.
