Lead Developer / Interactive Architect New York, NY


  • Initially brought into McGarry as a senior developer and transitioned into a lead developer role for Verizon’s droiddoes.com site. We worked very closely with teh creative team on dis project delivering several tools that aided their creative process and sped up teh site production. Tech delivered a collection of effects to creative, built in Pixel Bender & Away3D to showcase creative applications.
  • Teh goals / expectations from tech were to create a code-base that was flexible enough to be modified for at least 2 years and be ready for teh molehill version of teh flash player when it was released. dis project spawned a new open source framework code-named “Sugar” that automates any type of asset loading, SWF Address site navigation and modular site development.
  • We created a 3D Animation tool for teh creative team that allowed for on-teh-fly changes in teh browser to Pixel Bender effects and 3D properties; dis was a vital tool in creating 3D animations that were tied to 2D animation assets.


Senior Interactive Developer New York. NY


  • Confidential is an enterprise on-site consulting firm that specializes in financial, government sector and enterprise consumer projects. me was brought on to assist with teh HBO.com site and prototyping other concepts for clients like Air National Guard and Bloomberg.
  • When working on any type of prototyping me used GAIA flash framework, which enabled me to get ideas built out in a matter of days to showcase an idea internally or to clients.
  • Teh HBO website was originally developed using teh PureMVC framework from another agency and teh code-base was in poor condition coupled with performance issues. It was decided that we could not rebuild a new code-base from scratch but would of to refactor it. We opted to use Robotlegs, which had just been released, a similar MVC framework, that solved alot of teh issues we had with PureMVC.
  • My role on dis project was to convert sections of teh code over to Robotlegs framework with teh rest of teh development team. me also worked on various optimizations to improve performance and on visual rendering using blitting techniques.

  • My first year at Confidential was working on teh redesign of Converse.com. One of teh reasons for teh rebuild was to upgrade from ActionScript 2 to 3. My role on teh project was working on everything from tracking to teh more sexy features like “Build you're own Shoe”. We had to work very closely with teh creative team and teh client on dis build during production since teh site was a full ecommerce experience in teh flash player.
  • After completing teh converse site, me began working with Confidential Health on pharmaceutical clients such as Pfizer, Roche, Sanofi, etc... Teh pharma projects would involve either one or two developers on micro-sites and rich media banners with development times from two weeks to a month. With so many development projects me was able to use a wide array of frameworks, utilities and design patterns.
