Background

I’ve been designing and developing websites since 2004 which includes some client work for Capcom, YouTube, Valve, Google, and Disney. My roots originate from the Flash era where animated websites that give people seizures were the bomb :-)

In 2011, I’ve decided to migrate from Flash to HTML5 (and web development in general) because I wanted to get into the mobile space and its strong evangelism in the web. It opened a lot of opportunities for me in terms of work and expanded my network in the design and hacker community.

Sometimes I give talks about HTML5 game development, and help out people in StackOverflow in some of my free time.
