Hi there, world.

My name is Aim. I'm a web developer living in Portland, Oregon. This is a portfolio of some of the cool things I've made on my journey, from my humble beginnings as a 12-year old, coding custom MySpace profiles to my current career as a multi-industry tech developer and designer.

[PROJECTS]

...and what I learned from them.

Technologies

WordPress, HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, JQuery

Accomplishments

My C.E.O. wanted to use WordPress so that non-tech savvy members of the team and advertising partners could create and modify content. He was using a template from ThemeForest. I was able to convince him to allow me to launch a project to make a custom WordPress template so we could meet his requirements while also having an original and completely extendible in-house design.


Aliens & Turrets AR (2015)

Overview

Features

A creative Sci-Fi themed "computer console" design with a scrolling space background. A slick multi-page design with social media and app store/google play download links. The design is responsive and everything scales down to mobile screens. Using media queries, the appropriate resolution background image is selected and loaded to keep the animation smooth and the load time low.

The news page populates with the most recent posts from the company WordPress site that are tagged with the "Aliens & Turrets" tag. I query the database using PHP and MySQL and fetch the post titles, descriptions, date and post body for use on this page.

Technologies

HTML5, CSS3, PHP, MySQL

Accomplishments

Created a website that really pops and stands out from most static app landing pages with impressive but lightweight CSS-driven animation. Leveraged WordPress data externally to populate the news feed with relevant updates. Reached over 1000 pageviews with a clickthrough rate of 64% to the app store pages.


Half-Empty Studios (2012)

Accomplishments

I was invited to apply for an internship at an alumni-owned game development company while I was a Junior in University. A friend had gave me a good referral for my web development expertise and they were looking for someone to build their website. I completed the project in 1 month and went on to design the user interface for the game: Chemical Cubes. (Android/iOS; 2013)

Accomplishments

This project was my biggest contract when I was freelancing part-time as a Junior in high school. I developed an entire platform in one month and gained valuable experience in complex database architecture, credit card encryption and SSL.


SylfeDreams Forum (2007)

screenshot image

Overview

Features

Every user had a personal character called an avatar which they could customize with different clothes and hairstyles. We used Javascript to layer different .PNG files on top of each other while editing, and PHP to merge all the images upon clicking save into a single .PNG file.

Incentivized posting created user-generated content and fostered a community of active users. By posting, users would earn virtual currency which they could use to purchase items for their character or gift to other users.

screenshot image

Shops where you could spend the virtual currency (called "Sylver") on items for your character. Every user also had the ability to create their own personal shop to resell items they no longer wanted.

screenshot image

PHP-driven luck-based games for some extra entertainment.

screenshot image screenshot image

Customization and personalization are key features that attract users to join and participate in the forums.

Technologies

HTML, CSS, Javascript, phpBB, PHP, MySQL

Accomplishments

This was the first website I created when I was 14 years old. I learned how to work with other people's code from creating mods and custom templates for phpBB. I learned how to run a community, how to market a product and grow the userbase. I learned PHP and MySQL, site hosting and migration, and database management practices. I would later leverage these back-end skills with my HTML and CSS knowledge to become a freelance web developer.
