YourReebokActionScript @Fluid August 2007 - August 2008
YourReebok (née RbkCustom) is a Flash-based, shoe configurator that Fluid built in 2005 and has maintained since. I helped redesign and integrate it into their internationalized web site.
FineStationery.com sells customized stationery and party invitations to consumers. I worked on two separate projects with them as Fluid's technical lead and senior HTML developer.
The North Face In-Store KioskInteraction Design @Fluid January 2006 - March 2006
Fluid teamed up with Microsoft and The North Face to showcase emerging technologies using real-world products. I refined the schematics for the in-store, touch-based kiosk.
Macrovision is an industry leader in intellectual property protection technologies. I engineered the user interface for their TotalPlay application.
This was Fluid's first project with The North Face. I was the sole client-side developer, responsible for creating all the templates for the site.
Sanrio, a globally recognized brand steeped in cuteness, hired Fluid to build HTML/CSS templates for their online store built on the Demandware platfom. I was the technical lead and lead developer on this project.
Timberland Custom BootsInteraction Design @Fluid April 2005 - June 2005
Timberland had an existing web application for customizing boots, but it provided a poor user experience. I refined schematics and user flows for an updated, Flash-based application that resulted in a dramatically increased conversion rate.
Charles SchwabInformation Architect @Fluid January 2001 - August 2003
Schwab hired Fluid to assist upper-level management in making business decisions and to facilitate internal communications. Over the course of six projects, I helped conceptualize financial analysis tools and develop prototype documentation used to explain the Schwab philosophy and strategic approach.

netVmg, which was acquired in 2003, specialized in re-routing corporate Internet traffic to achieve the best performance-to-cost ratio. I created storyboards and animatics for the demo movie that explained their technology.

StudioDirectInformation Architect @Fluid August 2000 - January 2001
Li & Fung, a century-old global sourcing and manufacturing company, created the StudioDirect service to provide merchants with a tool for customizing, branding, purchasing and tracking products online. I was a member of the Information Architecture team for beta, and the lead Information Architect for version one.
Autodesk's iDesign OnlineInformation Architect @Zada June 2000 - August 2000
Autodesk's iDesign Online was the world's largest online B2B event in 2000. Over 40,000 architects, engineers, designers and GIS professionals attended over 60 seminars online. I designed the schematics and user flows for this event.
ZoomerangHTML Programmer @Zada August 1999 - June 2000
Zoomerang is MarketTools consumer-oriented, online survey creation and reporting tool. I wrote well-commented, modular, table-based HTML templates for the application. In later stages I also assisted in release management/coordination.
