Side Projects and Interests
  • StreamVR
  • StreamVR {Be There}
    I am currently working on a VR video sharing website, streamvr.com, which will use the 360 cam by Giroptic. This camera records high def video in all directions, which can be viewed from an Oculus Rift or Google Cardboard.
  • Robotics
  • Melrose iRaiders
    As the coach for the Melrose Middle School VEX Robotics team, I help students expand their knowledge and enthusiasm for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). We build 18" robots that compete against other schools in 2v2 robot games.
  • Wise Owl Games
  • Wise Owl Games
    Creating educational kids games for tablets and smart phones.

    Shape Sort is available for the iPad and iPhone. I've made a bunch of other games for my son, but haven't put them on the app store because going from a working demo to a polished product takes more effort than I have the time for at the moment.
  • FestaTools PHP Framework
  • Festa Tools
    An open source object-orientated framework for the PHP programming language. Designed to simplify database interaction and to organize PHP code. I started this framework while rebuilding GameTraderWorld.com in an effort to better organize my work and make it useful for future projects.
  • 3D Art
  • A scene inspired by Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic
    Since being exposed to 3D Studio Max in high school, I've had a passion for creating and rendering 3D scenes. I am now a proud user of Blender, the open source 3D modeling and animation software. Check out some of my work.
