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.

Panor

Panor is a free color-matching game released on the google play app market. 

Reindeer Game

For the holiday season in 2013, Symmetri decided they wanted something a little different than a holiday card. They challenged me to create a quick web game. The result was a simple shooting game in which you try to knock ornaments off a reindeer's antlers.

Company Required

A simple drupal 7 module requiring Commerce and Commerce Order. It demonstrates an early basic understanding of hooks (more complicated ones followed) along with the ability and desire to make simple, elegant solutions to some of drupal's more esoteric problems. In this case, the Commerce module's order form does not make the "company/organization" field required and does not give the option to do so.

EU Cookie Notice

This Drupal 7 module represented several firsts for me: Making an ajax call, developing an admin configuration page for a module, defining a block via a module, and passing variables to JS from a drupal module.

No Competitors

Continuing my work building more robust modules, this module also includes hooks and an admin screen. Unlike the EU Cookie Notice, this was created to meet a very specific need which did not exist in the community that I could see.

Universal Analytics Tokens

Representing the last module I wrote while I worked for Symmetri Marketing, this module attempts to provide a site-wide solution to a problem that arose after Google Analytics switched to Universal Analytics: How to capture campaign parameters and save it with webform submissions.

Symmetri Marketing

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.

The Blue Hotel

An award-winning essay about the Blue Hotel and its undertones of Tolstoy vs. Darwinism and the East vs. the West. If you haven't read Stephen Crane this probably won't be understandable.

College Descriptions

A PDF format version of descriptions of various colleges at Eastern Illinois University. This was written during a 6 month internship at EIU, where I worked in the University's publications department. These descriptions appeared in the primary marketing booklet for their "i am eiu." campaign that was rolling out in 2004 and, as of 2016, is still in use today.

Parkland Community College

This is an article for a small, community magazine in Champaign, IL. The magazine wanted the focus to be on the school's academics, but the contact at the college didn't want to talk about that, interestingly. In fact, I had some trouble landing an interview with the college's president, who didn't want the exposure. It's not all clear-cut, sometimes.
