[ work. ]

You see this on every portfolio site. That ominous section called "work" that is supposed to demonstrate what useful stuff the applicant in question has worked on day after day to prove what he can do. But isn't "work" sort of a pejorative term? If you call what you've made your "work", does that mean you just did it because you had to? Or is it possible to have done "work" while still having fun?

I think this gallery exemplifies this concept of work as fun.

(Please note that, as this website is still a work in progress, none of these projects are currently available for view or play. Hopefully this problem will be remedied in the next few days. If you would like a demonstration or more information on any of these projects, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thanks for your understanding.)

Web development has always fascinated me, and after working on a site for my yearbook class in high school, I was enthralled. When I was asked to make a portfolio page in a later college class, therefore, I decided to go all the way and make something I would actually want to show off. I'm thrilled with how it came out.

The assignment was rather generic: make a game in flash. Leveraging some of the best assets in the brony fandom, I decided to make this homage to the series.

We started with a simple idea and five group members, and ended with a full game, complete with particle effects, state-based AI, and several other neat features. The best part? Our group meetings were so fun that we looked forward to them, and so productive that we rarely had to meet more than once a week.
