Scrolling News Ticker
FOX News

This is a scrolling news ticker which reads in the desired XML and displays it in an easy-to-read side-scrolling ticker. I decided to let users control the speed of the ticker by using their mouse position. The further left you are, the slower the ticker goes and it will even allow you to go in reverse (in case you weren't done reading).

This ticker comes with an on-site version and an embed version so it can be added to a user's site or blog. Nifty.

ESPN's RV Chase
Invoke Media

The iPhone app had already been created and I was to program a more simple flash adaptation of the app so users could check their stats online. I utlized some amfphp in this project which grabbed info from the API in JSON format and then sent it to flash.

Revlon
Sqeaky Wheel Media

I created a number of aspects for the Revlon campaign via Sqeaky. Part of my task was to create a menu which felt like flash, but was done entirely with javascript and html. You can see the menu by mousing over "Explore" in the bottom left corner of the site.

Vida Lexus
Sqeaky Wheel Media

Come learn about Lexus in a bilingual environment complete with event listings and photos.

Some of the features in this site that had me excited during development were the SEO friendly flash headers (thanks sifr) as well as the session based memory of language preference which worked hand-in-hand with a light custom framework to make site development quick & dreamy.

2008 Real Time Elections Map
FOX News

As my first project at FOX News I had three months until election day 2008 to build an interactive elections map. Toward the middle of the project I realized we could do real time polling with our data, so we did. On election night this map polled for updated data every 10 seconds (thanks to relief from akamai) and would color the states as well as change vote amounts according to the freshly squeezed data. This map alone got ~1.4 billion hits election night!
