The Means

A vision from Biko Eisen-Martin for his students at Berkeley High School to create a tool for teachers and students to collaborate and compete in the writing process. Modeled after a traditional newsroom, students and teachers would be able to develop assignments, work on multiple versions of a story, share ideas within the class, and more. We built a prototype site that supported a semester of great essays still worth reading, but the project lost momentum as we both moved cities.

This project's greatest potential was in a version-controller for teachers to review, grade and provide feedback on student's essays, while peer reviews drove friendly competition between writer and school rankings.

If you work in Education or feel something like this could help your classroom or school district, please email me. I'd love bring it back to life in our spare time.

UI Tools include tinyMCE text editor, advance sourcing maps, and multi-category search options

Building Safety Solutions

Commercial software providing interactive emergency evacuation training for skyscrapers and public buildings throughout the US. Advanced UI tools include detail floor maps of emergency equipment and exit routes with controls for sorting and searching
  • Integrated Building-Safety-Solution's (www.bssnet.com) emergency evacuation training program with Ameriprise Financial's Learning-Management-System (LMS). Used Flash's External Interface to join the interface and Scorm 1.2 LMS
  • Wrote a JSFL script to export, convert and organize named layers directly from Illustrator CS3 into a single Flash movie clip. A naming convention for each layer in Illustrator specified how movie clips were named and embedded within each other. This provided the core content for a standalone Flash product which I built to allow safety professionals and engineers to zoom and locate safety equipment, stairwells, sprinklers and more, on every floor, throughout multiple skyscrapers.
