About Me

I'm a multidisciplinary web designer with a foundation in graphic design. I have a passion for both visual and interactive design, and am driven by the gratification that comes with bringing my work to life.

Originally from New Jersey, I've resided in Vermont for the last several years, where I co-owned a web design company, Studio RGB, worked part time as an image editor, spent a year working as a civilian contractor doing web design for the VT Air Guard, and launched a handful of projects of my own. As of now, I'm back in the greater Philadelphia area, and open to freelance projects.This site serves as a professional portfolio, showcasing a mix of in-house, freelance, and personal projects. To inquire about my availability for projects, just call or shoot me an email.

BBA Brochure microsite

A responsive microsite, geared primarily to mobile users, presenting video testimonials from current students and recent alumni of the Fox School of Business, used complementary to a brochure for prospective undergrad students.

Fox School of Business - Mobile site

Mobile website for the Fox School of Business. Working as part of a team to incorporate the Fox School's site into a jQuery mobile Wordpress theme, my largest influences over the project, in addition to general coding and maintenance, regarded typography, margins, the homepage banner layout, and optimizing images for retina displays where possible.

229th Course GUI & Multiple Choice Quizzes

Responsive and retina optimized courseware GUI for the VT Air Guard 229th Information Operations squadron, which teaches cyber and information ops courses to members of various military and civilian organizations as prerequisites to more advanced in-resident training. This interface is the black navigation panel which appears at the bottom of the screen in the examples below, as well as the banner above. Although the navigation panel looks largely different on each device, it's the same code, and mostly the same image sprites adjusting their selves accordingly.

The content featured inside these examples are some of the learning tools I designed and developed with JavaScript and XML, which give feedback based on answers and recommend whether or not to continue reading, or review previous course lessons before moving on.

Like many of my projects with the 229th, these knowledge checks help to break up the monotony of the course, and reduce learning fatigue. The examples shown (respectively) are a multiple choice quiz, where users select their answer before clicking continue, a drag and drop quiz using a word bank, and a command line simulator.

Cyber & Information Operations Simulation Game

A gamified training scenario demonstrating real life examples of decision making processes in which a thorough understanding of the material is crucial. In this project I was given complete creative control over the interface and asked to design with the goal of creating an illusion that the user has left the monotony of their course to enhance focus on the hypothetical scenarios at hand.

To do so, the navigation console shown at the bottom of the 229IOS course GUI was removed, and I created a highly detailed collage background in Photoshop during the composition phase, and added a script to replace the course GUI's banner with a matching color. I developed the functional interface with CSS and JavaScript, and it's both responsive and optimized for retina devices.

Are You an Expert? - Study Game

Created using CSS and javascript, it displays multiple choice questions followed by an increase or reduction in score. As the score increases or decreases, the gauge on the left animates up or down.

Features multiple difficulty levels, and one time use aids such as "Ask the expert", a 50/50 removing two of the incorrect options, and an ability to choose a second answer.
