About me

My passion for games, graphic-design and client relationships pair directly with software development, where the user’s experience is paramount. I became interested in coding as a means to amplify the reach of my artwork through website design and deployment. I’m excited to continue this work, reaching larger audiences and leaving a meaningful impact on their lives, whether through classic web apps, mobile or artificial and virtual realities.

Living in a small, paper-thin walled apartment in Denver, Fenton was reading a book late one night. As the story is intensifying, so is Fenton's heart rate, and also the plot in neighbor's TV show in the apartment next door. Fenton turns the page to read something astonishing as the show reaches its peak plot and music volume!! Guten Reader is an eReader that performs sentiment analysis of the text on the page and plays a song as you read that matches the mood of the text!
