Telus

I worked on the fully responsive redesign of the Telus website as part of the Nascent team, alongside Heist and the Telus beta team. Telus was looking to consolidate telus.com and telusmobility.com into one entity and become the world's first full responsive carrier website. The site was built upon a custom framework, which utilized Compass, Susy and Grunt into our dev process. We incorporated a Lean & Agile methodology into our workflow and sprint teams.

Blade of Eternity

Blade of Eternity (BoE) is a fantasy themed text-based MMORPG. Starting out as a university thesis project and developing into a full-blown game, BoE was owned and operated by me until privately sold in September 2011.

The game is set in the medieval era and features many different fantasy themed character classes, quests, items and crafts. The object of the game is to increase your characters' level through player-to-player combat and by performing various game tasks. Players also strive to obtain the best possible equipment for their character class. Clans are created for community purposes and to compete in clan-based wars.
