IHere's a little of what I have been working on.
This was a college assignment for a fictional cookery school. The brief included designing and developing a website for the fictional school. Each page was lovingly handcoded. I had input on the final design but main responsibilities were for coding up the site.
This is still in development, it started as a quick and simple wordpress theme and is now being updated to a fully fledged ecommerce site.
Handcoded website, with small blog and gallery features. Now in development to be updated to a Wordpress CMS
A small local charity were updating their sponsorship packs. This was the card that would have the student details on the the back. Used my own photographs. More images coming shortly.
This was a college animation project, we had to create a short animation piece based on anything we wanted. I was responsible for the styling of the background and animating the background.
For my graduate project I was part of a team that created an interactive bus stop. It played simple games that encouraged users at the bus stop to interact with each other. I wass responsible for creating the touchscreen. To the right are some of the videos of the piece in progress.
This was a college project for a protoype of a navigational system that the blind or visually impaired could use to navigate through an shopping centre environment. It was a successful but very rough prototype. It involved a system of audio cues triggered by RFID tags, where the user could store the shops they wanted to visit on a tag and then as they got close to a shop it would trigger an audio reaction. Opposite is the rough idea of how the protoype would work.
Currently I'm a freelancer while working on a masters.
I've also spent a year working as a media developer for a Dublin based e-learning company. Before that I worked as a housing advisor and as the inhouse web developer for UCC Accommodation and Student Activities. Even before then I worked in the social media department of a not-for-profit organisation in the US. Iíve also worked in the retail and food services industry.
