I'm Still Alive
This is proof of life. Small, but proof nonetheless.

Once Upon a Time
I Was a Sneakerhead (Updated)
When I graduated from college I spent a good deal of my paychecks on collecting sneakers. In particular, I became obsessed with Nike Dunk SB's. My brother turned me on to them when he got the Supreme SB's when they dropped back in September 2003. Later that same week he sold them at a 125% profit. I became amazed with a subculture that was so fanatical to the point that sneaker colorways and designs were regarded as high art.

New MTV.com Site Launch
MTV online has just flipped with switch on the new HTML version of the flagship site after going nine months with an all-Flash version. One of the main issues with the Flash one was usability complaints from lots of users. One thing I've observed when watching my friends use the site is the all too common confusion over whether or not a video they chose was actually being loaded... and where... Auto-playing of video was also removed to help sort things out.
So, I do software development for a living at a large media company after
doing it for a while at a small non-profit one. It keeps the left side of my brain
happy while paying the bills to keep the rest of the body satisfied (especially
the stomach, it loves to eat out). But, there's this whole right side of my brain
that my artist dad says I've allowed to atrophy into vanilla pudding.
So, I say to him, "But dad, look at this cool web page I did. Doesn't this count
at some form of artistic expression?". He asks me, "Did you do that on a computer?
That's different. Did I tell you about that time I beat the computer at calligraphy...
?". Don't get him started...
Featured Sandbox Piece
Here, I plan to spotlight a hopefully fun little project for visitors to check out.
These may be a piece of useful software I may have written, web-driven or otherwise.
