Giant Bomb

Creative Techincal Director 2011-2014

In 2011 I joined Giant Bomb and was responsible for the redesign featured in Time's “50 Websites That Make the Web Great” (although to be fair making the incredible staff and community of GB look great was an easy task). In 2012 Giant Bomb was acquired by CBS Interactive and I was part of a small team tasked with rebuilding the entire site from the ground up. I was the Art Director, one of two lead CSS/SASS developers, and a heavy contributor to our PHP/TWIG templates and video player functions.

Since 2012 I have also participated with Drew Scanlon in a yearly 24 Hour Extra Life Marathon, raising money for UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland. The entire staff now participates in the yearly marathons and with efforts from the Giant Bomb community as a whole, we have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years. A special thanks to Matt Pascual who has done a tremendous job over the last 7 years getting the entire community to rally around this great cause.
