About Geoff

Hi, I’m Geoff, and I like building things on the internet.

I’m one of the creators of Snap, Snap, Go!: An iPhone picture game for awful people.

Snap, Snap, Go! is a picture game for awful people.

I’ve worked for a couple of small startups in NYC including Branch and Picturelife. Before that, I was a Software Engineer at YouTube, where I was the tech lead of the video player team for a few years. I’m also the author of SWFObject, which you may have used if you’ve ever had to embed Flash content on a website. I also used to teach web development at The Cooper Union in New York.

If you are really bored, you can have a look at my probably outdated resume, and I can be reached by e-mail at geoff@deconcept.com (If you are e-mailing me a question about SWFObject, you are much better off visiting the SWFObject google group instead, as I answer these e-mails very slowly, and people in the forum will usually answer you much faster).

You may also be interested in some photos I’ve taken, and you should follow me on Twitter.

Some other facts about me:

  • I built my first website in 1996. It had plenty of those animated gifs and java applet buttons.
  • I started a website in 1999 and posted tons of little Flash widgets to it. Looking back, I suppose this was a “Flash blog,” but nobody was calling it that back then.
  • I was born in Indianapolis, but I’ve lived in Tucson, Arizona for about 9 years, and moved to New York City in March of 2004.
  • I moved to San Francisco in May of 2007, and now back to NYC in November of 2010.
  • I’ve co-authored a couple of books on Flash, and was a technical editor for Flash to the Core.
  • Other things you may have seen that I made: Sad iPhone wallpaper (2008), I Choo Choo Choose You simpsons card (2005) (traced from a still of the show), Click three points (2001).
