I made this music video by photocopying myself and a friend of mine. I can't remember how much money it cost, but I did it over a couple days and several angry photocopier users. I'm sure I also used all of the ink in the copier.

Welcome to the Digital Stone Age

This was my first Processing and first OpenGL project. I made it for part of my live audio set. Unfortunately, I don't have a way to render it in real time for my shows if I want to mix it with other video clips, so I render the animation to video and then work with it in Resolume.

Beatport sells dance music online. We call it "iTunes for DJs." I helped develop the Beatport website as the lead Flash developer. Moving to Beatport was a hard move for me because it meant giving up on ManiaTV! and leaving behind some of my best friends.

ManiaTV! Photo Shoot

Description

One of the few projects at ManiaTV! that I was really happy with was this photo shoot we did for a set of promotional postcards.

The best part of being at Xylem was getting to work on the Chopotle emails. After working on Chipotle DSL for so long, I was really happy to take on the stampede email. It's also the only legitimate use of the browser shake functionality in existence, IMHO.
