- Smith Bits needed a product catalog that would showcase over 2000 of their products in an easy to use, cost effective manner. Previous versions of the CD required too much updating work, so the new version needed to use XML. To increase usability a number of navigation paths were offered to the products allowing users unfamiliar with the product lines to locate the information they needed quickly and easily.

- The goal of the project was to provide an information gathering step in the purchasing process for the Adopt-a-Bear stores. Specal attention to usability brought forth a number of features to make the kiosk easy to use for both children and adults. The application provides users the ability to register bears purchased at Adopt-A-Bear. Upon completion of the process an adoption certificate is printed and awaits customers at the point of sale. The information collected also supports the client's marketing efforts. I worked with eTime Solutions on this project.

- This series of 8 fifteen second long Flash commercials was created for a Houston based drilling company. Each of the 8 Flash files was created from artwork and information from the company's brochures. The goal of the commercials was to take the 8 different brochures and tie them together with the same style of design. These commercials will be shown on a plasma screen monitor at the SPE 2000 trade show.

- This is a game card that I developed on spec for an online greeting card company. The basics of the game are pretty simple, but the ActionScripting on the back end is fairly complex. I was very happy with the sound loop that I found on a $2.00 Sounds CD from CompUSA. I have to thank my wife Arlene for some of the verbal digs. I didn't realize she had it in her. I recorded the voice work in my home office using my Mac. I was able to clean it up a bit, and add some reverb and effect to the voices. Requirements for the card did not include a pre-loader, so... wait for the entire card to load.

- This is part three of an ongoing 'episodic' Flash training series sponsored by the NSF and Rice University. My involvement was to produce the end Flash file and program all the games and interactivity. The artwork, design and source code for one section was provided. I think the checking of each test was one of the more challenging parts of the project. Some of the tests had more than one possible answer. I am also very happy with the interactivity of the virtual vault section.

- This presentation is designed to run from a kiosk at trade shows. It is essentially a straight presentation with some hidden goodies in it. In the main part of the presentation there is a 'mouse' sensor that moves the presentation on when the mouse is idle for fifteen seconds. There is also a bit of fun in the people illustrations. A bit of random programming in the movie clip for the people behind their desks allows them 'free will' to wave when they want to.

- This is my entry in FlashKit's Sydney to Hobart game contest. It is an introduction to the basics of sailing and a sailboat racing simulator all rolled into one. I wanted to make a game that accurately reflected the physics of sailing, how the boat would react to the wind. Turning the dynamics of boat, sail and wind forces into a sailing engine in Flash was some of the most complex programming that I have done. The courses are highly playable, and I have received about 40 e-mail from around the world with people leting me know what their best time is!

- This presentation was used as a self-running demo and web-enabled presentation designed to inform potential customers about the RDT. One of the main features of this product is the ability to configure the different modules to form task specific tools. Demonstrating this feature was effectivly conveyed by creating a 'game' in the presentation allowing the user to drag and drop the modules into the right configuration.

- A number of new Flash scripting techniques were all brought together for this game, the classic '301 Down' dart game. The velocity engine is used to throw the dice, while angle computation and the distance formula work to place the darts on the dart board. Very complex scripting was also made easier by using the 'Call' command. Give the game a try!
