Wonder Works - “Theme Song Challenge”Information Architecture + Design + ActionScripting
The objective of this game is to correctly match the theme song to the TV show’s name in the least amount of time. Players with quicker correct answers are rewarded more points. Since this is an ongoing game, the primary goal is to beat the all-time high score in each category. The games were deployed on custom Windows based computers with kiosk displays.
- From the intro screen, the player chooses one of five categories.
- There are approximately 10 theme songs to match in each of the five categories of the game.
- After the player chooses a category, they are taken to the instructions screen.
- From the instructions screen the player continues to the game itself.
- A TV show theme song plays.
- The player must choose one of the four answers displayed.
- To help the player, three clues are shown in five second intervals.
- The player must make their choice before the timer runs out.
- If no selection has been made zero points are awarded.
- Once the category is completed the player can choose another category.
My Roles & Responsibilities
I worked within a team (creative director, art director, writer, and an audio technician) to bring this project to completion. In order to work efficiently within this team, I had to make sure that I constantly updated my lines of communication with the other team members. My primary role was to bring all the pieces of the project
into a Flash based game.
I was in charge of:
- Transferring graphics from the design files to work within the Object Orientated Programming environment
- Structuring the information architecture of the game into the XML markup language
- All of the ActionScripting
- Animating transitions from screen to screen
HP - ExstreamAnimation + Animation Compilation
This animation is a trade show presentation for Hewlett Packard's new Exstream software. I worked as the chief animator and compiler for The Williams McBride Group to produce this piece. Though I was in charge of animating a large portion of the animation and the final compilation, I worked with other animation teams and designers to produce the final animation.
Kentucky Equine ResearchArt Direction + Design + Style
The good people at KER contracted me to provide the creative direction, art direction, and design of their new site. Of which, I did. I also provided a series of animations for them to randomly show throughout their site.
Cartoon Network - Captain Planet Cartoon NetworkActionScripting + Information Architecture
The Cartoon Network wanted a quiz application for the use of children to learn how to protect the environment. They contracted me to build this small quiz game for the kiddies to have fun with. The game is completely customizable by the data structure I provided them.
Calumet Farm calumetfarm.comDesign + ActionScripting + Animation
Though I wasn't responsible for the total site build, I was involved in several sections of the site. Calumet farm is world renowned for it's beauty. I think we captured that in the Flash site we created for them. Not to mention the site won a Gold Addy.
Tubby SmithArt Direction + Design + ActionScripting + Animation
These are images of, NCAA men's basketball coach, Tubby Smith's former website (while coaching at the University of Kentucky). It was an honor to participate in many roles for the production of this website. Not to mention, it was lots of fun working with Tubby!
Trapp Communications trapp.comActionScripting + Animation + Information Architecture
The site I built for one of my most loyal clients, Trapp Communications Group. Though the site has changed a bit from when we first launched it, it's still for the most part what we created. I would like to extend Leslie, Cindy, Lisa, and everyone else I've worked with there a round of gratitude!
Motorola - Voyage Through The MGatesArt Direction + Design + Style + Information Architecture + Programming
What an experience this was! Voyage Through The MGates is a global training application for Motorola employees. I was in charge of all the creative and art direction, graphic design, Flash application design, build, and information architecture. This was a very intensive project that incorporated fun graphics, video, audio, animation, testing applications and more.
Kentucky Highlands Entrepreneurial CenterActionScripting + Information Architecture
What a wonderful project to have come across my desk. It incorporated many different levels of dynamic ActionScripting and animation. Unfortunately, the Kentucky Highlands Entrepreneurial Center no longer exists. The site featured a news section, forums, chat rooms, etc. that I wish I had images of. It would take month to make a mock site from my files. So if you have any questions, just ask.
Overbrook Farm overbrookfarm.comDesign + ActionScripting + Animation + CMS Integration
As far as data-driven websites go (especially years ago when they didn't really exist in the Flash world), this is what I cut my teeth on. This site went through four or five different programmers hands before I signed on to the project. In the beginning it was a jumbled mess, but, it really cleaned up to be one for the portfolio.
Tennessee Film & Music CommissionActionScripting + Animation
An oldie, but a goodie. These are a few examples of some animations I created for the Tennessee Film & Music Commission. The animations were used as advertisements for the website, we, at Slam! Digital Works, built for them. The site got a lot of global recognition by other film and music commissions.
Slam! Digital WorksCreative Direction + Art Direction + Design + Animation
An oldie, but a goodie...Part II. Here are two animations that were used by our sales team to advertise our little company. They are fairly old animations in the web world, but, I love them because they represent some of my early professional work, straight out of college. Note: Slam! Digital Works was a very young aggressive company and they really wanted to present themselves in that persona.

I just finished the artwork for the Great American Rivalries website. I sure hope it goes over well, as they are to be coined on ESPN later this season.
