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.
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If you are really bored, you can have a look at my probably outdated resume, and I can be reached by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org (If you are e-mailing me a question about SWFObject, you are much better off visiting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).
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).
