Colors in Motion
Colors in Motion is an action-puzzle game I made with a fellow student as a final project for a game design class. We worked together to design the puzzle-action gameplay that I then implemented in GameMaker Studio.
After several revisions we nailed down the core mechanics of manipulating blocks into goals, so to further improve the game we added a story and puzzle progression mechanics to keep the player motivated. We had a very limited time to both design and develop the game so it is a bit rough around the edges, but the players still enjoyed the core gameplay so I count it a success.
A Leaf on The Water
A small experimental game created as a project for a game design class. I wanted to recreate the contemplative feeling of watching a river and seeing a loan leaf float by. So I created a slow endless runner that is focused on planning ahead and understanding the mechanics instead of twitchy action.
Santa Cruz Celiac Support Group
Working directly with a local celiac support group, I built a website for their organization. I designed and implemented a flexible CSS layout that is adapts to both phone and desktop web browsers. To help them update the site, I wrote a simple content management system using Ruby on Rails. The site was well received and I occasionally work with the organization to make small additions to the site.
SAP’S Auto Detailing & Pressure Washing Services
I collaborated with the owner of a local auto detailing company to design and build an ecommerce site for their business. The company had no online presence when they first contacted me, so I helped get their business listed on sites such as Facebook, Google, and Yelp to increase their discoverability. After building the site using a static site generator, I continued helping the business periticialy update their website and social presence.
I am an avid photographer and have many photographs I am proud of, several of which have won ribbons at the Santa Cruz County Fair.
As the final for a photography class I created a photo book. After taking the photographs and processing them with Adobe Photoshop, I assembled the photos into an exploration of the details that make up the world around us.
