Redlow.net

Welcome to redlow.net, an ancient place of power birthed from the remains of an abandoned roman internet super highway. A site so antique, it's everything and nothing at once. Once in a blue moon I might update a thing.

The snarky toast I gave at my brother's wedding.

An award-winning poem.... from a computer game. Also, about a computer game. Can you say nerd? I can. I smell it too!

A free-form tree built in 3D Studio Max. One of the last models I built, this one has some texture work along with 2D planes with leaves to create the illusion of full foliage.

From 2011 to July 2015, I worked at Symmetri Marketing in Chicago as a developer. I had a hand in, or built myself, over 20 websites, all in drupal - with a handful of others in .NET platforms. In the majority of these sites I was the front-end developer, the back end developer, and in all cases, the CMS architect.

A simple, still-more-to-do life counter for Magic: the Gathering.

A UO player whose character was "Rok Hagor" interviewed me one evening. It was.. uh, real?

Another award-winning poem.. submitted in a computer game. Although this one has nothing to do with the game at all.

Some old banners and logos from previous versions of redlow.net

A poem about a former love interest, who shall remain safely anonymous. Although it sounds abstract, each line has specific meaning.

A model designed in 3D Studio Max; built from a profile view on graph paper. No textures; just rendered with lighting.

In 2001 or 2002, Ultima Online's unique volunteer program consisting of Seers, Counselors, Troubadors, and new player advisors (whose exact titles are eluding me!) was canceled. These were players working for free to help the game including running quests (like a dungeon master in D&D) and helping - by hand - new players adjust to the game. I interviewed one of the seers shortly after the program was terminated.

A sort of convoluted screenplay about an immigrant, God and Satan's arguments over who people blame for what, and a 23-year-old's half baked statement about terrorism. It won some made-up classroom awards tho, so I'm sure it could be an oscar-winning movie someday!
