I worked in Macromedia/Adobe Flash throughout its zenith on the web. I was a Certified Macromedia and Adobe Flash Designer and Developer working in ActionScript 1, 2 & 3. I worked solely in Flash for about 10 years. In that time I created; for offline use, large interactive presentations, small programs that solved a task specific to a companies needs, complex multi-screen timelines, multimedia kiosk presentations, animated openings for corporate meetings, and I of course also used Flash to create parts of, or entire websites online, working extensively with video content when “.FLV”s where the best way to customize and show videos online. I also designed the intricate interfaces before implementing them in Flash.

Because I have been working on the web since its inception, the format has brought me through a constantly changing landscape of skills. Once Flash was no longer a viable form of animation on the web I took to HTML5 from its inception and have worked in Adobe (Edge) Animate until it was folded into Flash and became Animate CC, but I prefer to create complex animations in Tumult’s Hype. All of the work below was created using HTML5. Except for the first animation, all of the work below was done for Knowledge Factor/Amplifire and integrated into their learning software. When the animations were used as visual aids inside of the questions they were only 300px wide, so they can look a bit stretched when shown full screen.

While looking through the animations you will see the use of both my vector and raster-based artwork that were used in creating the final animations.

Design Your Wall

Cigna Design Thinking
When businesses call me to decorate their office walls with photography it is often hard for the client to picture what will work and in what size. In this animation I allow the client to place photographs of her choosing (in this case only Colorado photos) on their customized wall, which is to scale and including elements that appear in the room. There is also a button allowing the client to decide between smaller traditional prints and aluminum prints and see how they will fill the wall.
