Designer and Developer

Your champion was here.
Design, UX, Development, Prototyping, Content Planning, Systems Design, Gaming
Champion of iterative team workflows and processes.
Currently @ theScore.
Previously Teehan+Lax, Disney.
I have full-stack developer abilities with a preference for prototyping, front-end development and design. The user experience is paramount and will always command my utmost attention.
Javascript / HTML / CSS / Git / Gulp / ES6 / Bower / Yeoman / Grunt / Python / Node / D3.js / Ember / GAE / Wordpress / PHP / Closure / Meteor / AS3 / SVN / ABC / 123
In my locker I do have awards such as FWA’s (7) and Cannes Lions (1) along with contributing as part of the team to a recent Agency of the Year (1) win...but awards don’t matter right? Right. What matters is making products which solve real jobs to be done, on time.
I love music and film and I’m an avid soccer player and motorcycle enthusiast. I live to create and to make an impact in everything I can be involved in. On top of all that I’m also a pretty good cook!
I started my career as a designer before becoming development focused...this design sensibility has helped me bridge working between team disciplines as well as offer avenues for creative solutions.

Kandu: App Interface design and App Interface Prototyping - prototype video

Javascript, Kinetic.js, Unity, SASS, oAuth

Kandu is an iPad app which allows kids and adults to build games or interactive applications with no prior programming knowledge.

My work consisted of figuring out how to create a minimal interface which would allow the user to visually edit and create simple and complex objects on screen.

Each object created could also be programmed with behaviours which required a different interface. This UI needed to access all of the various events, behaviours and relationships an object could posess and resond to without taking over the entire screen.

The UI was prototyped using javascript which was then implemented in Unity by Kandu engineers. Some prototyping done directly in Unity.

More info about the App can be found at Kandu.com.

Just for Posterity

Here are a few of my old games which were created while I was employed at Kaboose. The games were original content for a group of websites whose target audience were either younger children aged 4-8 or the 'tween' demographic of kids aged 9-12. Kaboose was, along with all of its content and properties, later acquired by Disney.

I did the programming for these along with audio, UI, concept, tools...blah, blah, blah. Special mention to Bruce Simpson, Anthony Pilger and Shannon Mistry as their contributions made them possible.
