I drew this on a page of #ZeroTimeDilemma doodles, and it turned out more #StarFox than #ZeroEscape ¯\(ツ)/¯

I kept hearing “A Thousand Miles” at camp, so I finally got around to making this. Sorry, but it had to happen.

Why is this a thing that still happens? Did we not JUST go through this earlier this year? 😠

“No Good Deed” (Wicked) came up on shuffle right after “Life's Too Short” (Frozen outtake), and I realized the songs go surprisingly well back-to-back. #Wicked #Frozen #Showtunes #Elsaba

This appeared in the parking lot yesterday after camp. Yes, I caught it. Yes, meetings were interrupted so staff could go catch it. #PokemonGO

Special throw bonuses? Fixed.
Battery saver on iOS? Fixed.
Nearby tracker? Visibly improving.
Benu performance? Noticeably improved.

Introduction

I am a game and software designer and developer.

I enjoy programming, level design, and user interface/user experience design, and I have extensive experience and skills in those areas—I have been teaching game and software design and development since high school.  I also enjoy drawing, 3D modeling, 2D and 3D animation, acting, and singing.  In my spare time, I also enjoy promoting wave, spinning poi, cosplaying, geeking out over sci-fi, and writing lyrics (usually parodies of existing songs) from time to time.  And normal things, such as playing video games and reading.

If you are interested in some of the things I make, you can check out my apps, wave gadgets (for Google Wave, Shared SpacesApache Wave, and similar systems), Portal maps, and other tech shenanigans.

I am also the current PR coordinator for RIT STARfest (starfest.ritstar.com)!


My views are my own and do not reflect the views of my current or former employers.

Bragging rights
I can write a web app on a bus ride, and I spin fire poi.

This theater has improved tremendously since AMC took over. It has incredibly comfortable reclining seats. Prices are about par for the course as movie theaters go, though there are some food options, like pizza (which I have not tried, but my friend tel me is pretty good) not found at all theaters.

We came for a particular dish advertised in the Post, but they were out. What food we did have was OK, but not exceptional. The menu had a rather limited selection of things they specialize in, so do not expect as diverse a menu as other Japanese restaurants or sushi bars.

The menu was a bit dense and difficult to read, but all the food was excellent. We primarily tried the meat pizzas, but I am sure the other options are just as good. The staff were very friendly and service was very fast.
