Description: A web based chess GUI using modern standards and tools.
The game is still a work in progress. Key functionality like the checkmate and stalemate routines still need to be coded.
Description: This site was created to provide a web presence for a Portland based musician / photographer / designer.
I designed a site to showcase his various creative talents, with a photography gallery, listing of released albums, and an upcoming performance list. I also implemented a simple web-based CMS to allow him to add additional content and update performance information on the go.
I used Spry for the accordion and tab effects initially. I'm working on switching this over to jQuery UI. I'm also working on changing the galleries from CSS driven effects to Fancybox.
Description: A coded prototype of a front-end interface for reviewers to read, comment on and approve or deny submissions for a literary magazine.
HTML5 and CSS3 were used to give the interface a stream–lined modern look. I also used @media queries to allow for a responsive layout based on screen width.
Originally hailing from Western Michigan, I relocated to Portland in 1998 after acquiring an Associates Degree in Business with a CIS focus from Baker College. In 2008 I decided to continue my education, and enrolled in the Art Institute of Portland to study Web Design and Interactive Media.
I've had an interest in computers since before they had disk drives. I learned BASIC by reading the manual that came with my first CoCo Computer from RadioShack. I've been writing fiction and drawing for almost that long. My first webpage was on GeoCites written by gleaning source code from other sites, while I was still at Baker.
I have been working in the industry for more than two years, building responsive websites and emails.
