Building Games

I've been making HTML5 games for four years and before that Flash games for six years. Physics and artificial intelligence scaling for optimum performance on mobile devices. As advertisers discovered that HTML5 could bring more dynamic content to their ads, I've been hired to build ads with fluid animations, interactivity, and even games playable right inside the ad!

Some clients I have built games and interactive online ads for:

Mattel, Nerf, Lego, My Little Pony, Monster High, Parmalat Cheestrings, Ontario Provincial Police, NBA, Joe Fresh, Girl Guides, Furby, Walmart, Monster High, Nintendo, Canadian National Institute for the Blind


Creating Web Apps

A veteran of web development, I've been building sites since the web's early days. From technical architecture of the server, database, codebase, and development processes, through to QA, launch, and the progressive evolution of the site. I've also managed technical teams to ensure milestones are hit and standards and best practices are applied for successful delivery of larger projects.

Some clients I have built websites and web apps for:

University of Toronto, RBC, BMO, Scotiabank, Manulife, TVOntario, TreehouseTV, Dino Dan, Odd Squad, Roll Play Live, Giver, Playdate (DHX), Breezin' Thru, Mercedes USA, McDonald's Canada


Running Servers

Online games and sites need servers to call home. Also databases, geolocation targetting, and custom APIs to manage dynamic content and users. I can get all of this configured and built with security, uptime, and performance in mind. Want some datamining to discover quantitative stats about how your product's being used? I can do that too!

For security reasons I don't publicly identify the servers I manage.

It’s an online name I started using in the early days of the web and now that's how the internet knows me.
