Success is the sum of small efforts - repeated day in and day out.
The next project that I am working on is a personal project that I am keeping under wraps for now. The site will be more robust with a user login system and e-commerce. I will also be doing a large portion of the artwork in Adobe Illustrator. It is a big project but I will keep updates as they come.

Ink and paper are sometimes passionate lovers, oftentimes brother and sister, and occasionally mortal enemies.
To the outside world Gabriel Alderman had the ideal life. He was young, attractive, successful, had lots of friends, and a beautiful lover. But behind closed doors, his life was hanging together by threads. His career in journalism was teetering on his company’s ability to survive the rise of digital publications. And his love life, although very hot in the bedroom, was lacking outside of that. This comes to a head when a chance encounter makes him question everything that he has become and the kind of person he wants to be.
Showcasing the difficulties of navigating relationships in the digital age, Chasing Dogs is a touchingly personal exploration of what it means to love, and the sacrifices we make to have it.
Storytelling is an important part of every culture throughout the world. It has the ability to entertain, inspire, provoke, call upon our deepest emotions, and most importantly provoke thought. Reading has the power to shape you. Since thought is what drives us to action. That which can influence the minds of the masses can in turn influence the course of history. Now, perhaps more than ever, in our fast-paced fast-food 140-character hashtag society, we should be taking a moment to read from the pages of our history. Now I don't believe that I can solve the problems of the world, but if I am able to impact even one person positively, I can potentially change their world.
Lighten up, just enjoy life, smile more, laugh more, and don't get so worked up about things.

Before this, I actually went under the name Red-FL. I worked exclusively in flash. None of the work was good, but I was having fun. This site was the best version of Red-FL. All of the sections flew out of the middle of the page. Created over 15 years ago, there is no way I was going to get these sites back on the web.
I made a small site for a body builder, which included a professionally created video that he obtained on his own. The code work for this site was in chopping up his picture into 100 pieces and scattering it across the page, then having the next picture do the same thing in reverse. There was also a section for his competition photos and awards.
This site was a personal portfolio full of pictures that loaded one at a time - to help with site speed. Using sound now can be a faux-pas, but I thought it really matched the feeling of this site. It wouldn't be until much later that I learned how to create a slideshow that covered the majority of the screen, and a more complex navigation menu.
This is nothing but a complex slideshow. All available photos float across the screen from right to left. Clicking on a thumbnail made it grow and then fade in the hi-rez version over the pixelated thumbnail. They are even organized into different photo albums. The carousel reacts to mouse movement on the bottom. I think I might try to remake, using modern web standards.
I wanted to make that was made up of squares that changed color based on the page you were viewing. They would also respond to mouse movements and adjust themselves to screen sizes. This was about the time that Actionscript 3 came out. I struggled along until I met with an expert from the internet, who taught me about nested arrays. A lesson I'll never forget.
To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone, and a funny bone.
