Obama’s Cabinet was created in my free time. I pitched the idea over at FOX and it was a go. Within a week from the start date we had a finished and launched product. The very next week they played a snippet of the cabinet on TV and told the folks at home to check it out!

Hannity Border Map
Hannity’s people track border events via this map tool. I added a fun perspective shadow to the “3d” items and Ian Jopson did the design. This map brought in text & video information from a Drupal database.
Best of 2008
Ringing in 2009 was web savvy with the FOX News new year’s eve interactive. What’s better than kicking the new year off with a champagne bubble emitter and leaving your vote on terrible images? That’s right, just about anything else you might do on new year’s eve is better. However, this was a fun project and the FOX folks were all happy about it (that counts me too!).
Obama Change Index
Each week there are experts from the Democratic, Republican and Independent parties which vote on Obama’s Presidential performance. This app allows users to subscribe to a weekly email, view the weekly recorded data and even cast a public vote as to how they feel the president is doing.
MMCore aka FOX News Video Core
This is my crown jewel for mass video transit. This project created scalability for FOX News to create several video players, but use the same universal core. Using the same core functionality allows them to do system wide updates for ad handling, tracking and protocol measures in just one file.
FOX Business Video Player
This is the player that was developed for video.foxbusiness.com with the MMCore project I wrote for FOX News. FOX Business was actually the first site to use the MMCore functionality. This video player is a skin that uses functionality from the core to allow the user to interface with video. I was thrilled when I realized that pairing a skin with the separate core piece was going to be a very lightweight and robust system for video.

I Am Lost
As my first gig with JandaCo, I put together a game engine in flash for the first season of ABC’s lost. I was asked to create the game after the feel of “Myst”. Every week, after an you watched an episode of lost, you could use the knowledge for that weeks episode to work your way toward the shore! Janda put together the images, I put together the game and the fans made “I Am Lost” a great milestone.
Your Perfect Oscar Date
