VIDVOX hired Aaron Taylor-Waldman to design the new site for their video compression/playback system HAP. I had the pleasure of working with VIDVOX and ATW to code and launch the HAP website.
Artist Fernando Orellana wanted a one-page site that would allow people to submit protest ideas for his installation “You’ll Never Know We Were Here”. I designed and built him this Robot Protest site that uses a Google Spreadsheet as the database and moderation system.
Worked with [amazing Northampton, MA company] Last Call Media on a number of websites including their own and ones for HIAS, Brainshark, and LCM’s development tool Mannequin.
I started noticing that certain times on the clock read as 2 raised to a specific power. For instance, 2:56, 5:12, and 10:24 are 28, 29, and 210 respectively. So I built binary clock to aid with this sillyness.
I was one of two developers that built the front-end interface for Forecast, a website that provided free local weather forecast information to anyone. We were immensely proud of the mobile web interface you could save to the homescreen of your iPhone.
John Gruber called Dark Sky an “innovative, gorgeous, and highly practical weather app for iPhone and iPad.” On we released the Kickstarter funded project. It continues to be one of the most popular weather apps in the App Store.
Digifabshop wanted a new website that showed off all the photography they had of their work. I built them a new WordPress powered site that is wall-to-wall imagery.
Nanospace is an online amusement park built in close collaboration with the biotech department at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. It’s a web-based arcade full of games and activities designed to teach kids about nanotechnology.
When my friend David needed a redesign of the VIDVOX website I was happy to be of service. All of the illustrations on the site were done by the immensely talented Bryan Kahrs and we worked with Otis Maxwell on some of the wording for the website.
Tiny Face was a really silly thing that Adam Grossman and I did to experiment with iOS development. It used advanced computer vision techniques to answer a question no one ever asked: How tiny can you make your face?
Artist Fernando Orellana wanted a unique website that showed off his images as big as possible. I built him a new WordPress powered site that goes to unique lengths to fill as much of the browser window with his work as possible.
When Agora Games needed some help getting a completely redesigned MLGPro.com out the door they called on me and my friend Adam. We built them a Rails powered site that took advantage of HTML5.
A friend and I were approached by a non-profit to design and build Quest For College, an HTML/CSS/JS adaptation of a board game designed to prepare high school kids for the college application process.
After getting version two of GRID out the door, I assembled my first PC and built GRID2 for Windows. This is VIDVOX’s only Windows app to date. Mine too, I think.
Some friends of mine and I performed at Lincoln Center. Two of us remixed video footage of me falling down a hill while two of us provided a live score for the result.
Designed, developed, and released a Mac app for doing video performance called GRID. I was still an undergrad, but I built an app that made tens of thousands of dollars. I thought I was pretty great.
First web job. I did grunt work for the talented folks at Digital Instincts. I got to work on an ancient version of Alec Baldwin’s website. No lie.
First job. My mom would drop me off at people’s houses and I’d teach them how to work their computer or fix something. At 15 I was starting to see the appeal of freelance.
Mom signed me up for a community college course in Photoshop. I was the only kid in the class. Got an A.
Got my first Mac, a Performa 450, in 6th grade. Changed everything. My grades went up. I got taller. Possibly unrelated.
Built my first Lego Technic kit. Parents called me to dinner and I just kept building.
