What I’m doing now

(This is a now page, and if you have your own site, you should make one, too.)

Getting Back to Work!

I've spent the past 5 years working part-time while in Dad mode, but now school is back in session! It's time to get back to work, writing bugs and squashing code! I made a Shred While You Work Spotify playlist to kick things off.

2022 - M.U.Y.

This year my work focus is to create Music apps, Update all my apps (as needed), & make a plethora of new Youtube videos.

Music

I'm close to releasing a new synth app called Overdrive Synth! It is a multi-sampler synth that aims to answer the question: What does a synthesizer sound like through an overdrive pedal? I'm releasing a behind-the-scenes video along with the app but you can see it early here.

Updates

All of my apps are updated for the latest devices and OS. If you ever have any questions or feature requests, feel free to reach me at hello@mobypixel.com.

YouTube

For the past several years, my main work focus has been creating games for iOS and Android. I love the creativity and problem solving that goes into making a game. Buuuuuuut, I don't like working alone in isolation for 8 to 10 months while in development. This is what brought me back to making videos. They are short, sweet, sharable, and they don't have to be updated. Now that my gamedev series wrapped up, I'm working on audio development videos. Check 'em out: Moby Pixel.

Open Source

In addition to releasing my own products, I'm committed to making Open Source tools to empower creatives to support themselves. I've made several open source projects, contribute regularly to AudioKit, and I plan to do many more.

AUv3 Instrument is a minimal sampler app example using AudioKit 5 for iOS.

Gnarly Links is an Open Source HTML Template to link your music/game/software product pages in one place. It's as easy as adding a page to your site.

Now Page Template is an Open Source HTML Template to create a Now Page for your site. (You're looking at it right now!).

Free YouTube Subscribe Button Animation is a subscribe button and bell notification animation with green screen or transparent background for YouTube.

Homebodies

Like most of the world, we're stuck at home taking things a day at a time right now. I find my most productive days are the ones where I stay off the news and social media entirely.

Every weekday, I work on M.U.Y. from 7 to 3 with a short break for lunch and a walk. Then, Hannah and I run around the house fighting monsters until dinner, tub, and bedtime. Rinse and repeat. Every day. It's amazing (and utterly exhausting)! :D
