Hey, I'm Sam
Endlessly curious, motion loving, web developing, maker man.

I've been passionately making/breaking both digital and physical things for a while now. With a love of learning, technology and art, I'd do all this for free.

Mind the mess, my new full featured play area is under construction.
Please reach out if you have feedback!

Experience

My mind has always felt most nourished, learning. With an enthusiasm for technology and art in all their forms (including dance.) My interests have always remained broad with a passion for the blurred line where creativity, function and form, converge.

Web

I have been tinkering on the web since a kid. Eventually growing into a somewhat larger professional kid with wider eyes as the potential and impact of the cyber-world has grown; I with it.

As the end products are often fleeting, here are some tiny snippets of my work.

  • User Experience
  • Design
  • Performance
  • Accessibility
PHSA.ca Homepage

At Signals, I was lead front-end developer on a large Sharepoint integration for the Provincial Health Services Authority. Each of their associated agencies would have their own colour palette, custom assets and internal microsite capability. I worked with a designer and directly with the client's Sharepoint development team.

FoundryBC

For FoundryBC, I created this animation using the FLIP (First Last Inverse Play) methodology to get a smart, flexible and performant animation.

ArtsandHealth.ca

Arts & Health needed a new website to showcase all the great work they do, helping seniors express their creativity with professional artists whilst building a healthy community.

Bloor & Bathurst

Westbank's Bloor & Bathurst project navigation. The entire site was built with GSAP and native javascript for a rich user experience. I wrote the codebase for an animation workflow that was used as the foundaiton for many other projects.

Vivid Concept

Here I was playing with a low poly gradient SVG I created and the GSAP library. Animating each polygon in sequence with a bounce for a more organic feel.
