This behemoth of a project involved over 60 teams. I was part of the development cycle, from wireframes, to design, to prototypes, to the fully functional final product. I wrote a case study highlighting a few parts of my experience with the project.
In the summer I had the good fortune of working with a team on another Ticats related project. The Ticats All Access web app is designed to improve the fan interaction on game days. I created wireframes, designs, prototypes and used SASS to design the final product. This is a fully responsive mobile first project, since the primary use case would be (but not limited to) handheld devices at the stadium on game day.
Once provided with the design and specific screen size / device requirements, I helped build a trade show app for Kubota. The app would display all the information about the selected vehicle model to the customer. Working with other developers in React, it was my responsibility to make sure our product matched the client's original design. I generated assets, integrated fonts and wrote all of the SASS.
GolfCanada.ca was another fully responsive project with a mobile first approach. We wanted to make sure that golf fans everywhere could access the site from any device.

It all started in university when I answered a random posting on the door to my art history class that said: "Cartoonist Wanted." Since then, I've illustrated hundreds of pages, and made great friends in the process. That one reply forever altered the course of my life. I worked with a couple of guys on the Reality In Repair (2003-2007) series. After we finished with RIR, I created Trench Spike (started 2008) which I still update occasionally. Finally, one of writers and I teamed back up to create Pickle Zombie (2008 - present) which is a silly semi-autobiographical series about the funnier moments (we hope) in our lives.
