Isaac. A Brief Intro.

I always have a bit of a difficult time picking an exact description of the kind of work I've done over the years. I usually describe myself as an Interactive Developer. My career path has taken me from full-stack web development to video game engineering to writing software for digital innovation and marketing agencies.

Recently I've been using technology to bring to life built environments. From trade shows to museums to retail spaces and customer/corporate briefing centers, anywhere that a client wants to transform the experience of their guest and employees in their spaces. Some of the clients I have worked with include; NFL Networks, Salesforce, Cisco, Visa, GSK, Gensler, the City of San Francisco, and Madison Square Garden.

A lot of my development efforts have been focused around building innovative informational kiosks, presentation tools, interactive experiences, and building systems that react to, and provide information about, the people in these environments. These development efforts have been guided by a collection of amazing designers, PMs and account managers that I've had the privilege of collaborating with. My individual contributions have spanned all aspects of programming; graphics, interaction and UI programming, audio, lighting, sensor integration, and backend systems. I've also been involved with specifying requirements, interacting with outside vendors and contractors, and on-site installation.

Ultimately what really drives me is building amazing experiences with a talented and compassionate team that delight the people that interact with our work.
