Motion Graphics, Design, and Programming

When I graduated, if you would have asked me what I was doing with my future, I would have told you I wanted to land a design job doing primarily print and logo design. So you may wonder why a graphic designer would gravitate towards web development, and I get asked about it quite a bit.

I have a passion for art and design, and always have, but I soon realized out of college that I have the uncanny (and sought after) ability to combine the problem solving processes of web design with all of the necessary code development.

I guess part of that may come from what you could consider an ingrained understanding of coding languages in general. After all, I’ve been writing code for websites since the internet was called CompuServe. If that isn’t some major geek street-cred, I don’t know what is.

The maverick rising project holds a special place in my heart. Growing up, the Super Nintendo was a huge part of my life. Some of the greatest games I’ve ever played were on that machine, and the first three installments of the amazing Megaman X series were no exception to that greatness.

I remember playing and re-playing this game over and over again, even coming back to it in my college years for more than just a few rounds. One major factor in the replay-ability of these games are their soundtracks. Capcom definitely had a signature sound when it came to their game soundtracks during the heyday of these games, and the Megaman X series is a tribute to it.
