The bread and butter of my experience at Newsday, News12 and amNY have been creating custom interactives and investigative journalism pieces that require a little extra flare when the normal article presentation just won't cut it. The slideshow above is a brief showcase of projects that I both designed and coded.

Some Newsday projects I designed and developed:

Zombie Homes

Marathon Tracker

What would you tell the Pope?

An Investigation into Nassau's Tax System

The Fighter & The Father

Chris Weidman

The following project was made in collaboration with the Sports editors and Multimedia department for a unique video experience. View Long Islands own MMA champ Chris Weidman in this dual video experience, where you have the ability to swap between 2 video feeds synced up to the same audio.

Very proud of this one since it got me a trip into the city to attend the 60th NY Emmy Awards, while netting me a shiny trophy to boot.

Pathway to Power

One man's rise shines light on LI's corrosive system

Pathway to Power preview Pathway to Power video preview Pathway to Power title preview Pathway to Power lower third preview Pathway to Power chapter preview Pathway to Power preview 2

A massive investigative news piece that was many years in the making. I was very fortunate to be a part of it and was responsible for the user interface, chapter navigation, and graphics for both the article and video.

The story follows a street thug turned millionaire as he gained political and business connections exposing corruption, crime and overall shadiness.

These are the stories journalists live for and it was satisfying to be a part of the team and make it all come together.

United Nations

2008 - 2009 | Best cafeteria ever

United Nations Logo United Nations Web Preview United Nations Web Preview 2

United Nations was a really cool place to work. The view from the 40th floor looking across the East River into Queens was amazing. And the insane selection of international food in their cafeteria was equally awe inspiring. We also did a project here and there to assist in their peace keeping initiatives from around the globe. Not too shabby.

Steve & Barry's

2006 - 2008 | Retail & Fashion Design

Steve & Barrys - Out of the Cold Poster Design

Steve & Barry's was the best. I really enjoyed designing for a retail environment and it was interesting to see the advancement of their brand as they added celebrity clothing lines. I was lucky enough to go to India to train fellow employees there, that was a wild experience. S&B is also where I met the guys who would be my future bandmates in BFTZ. I honestly wish S&B didn't go bankrupt, because it was an absolute blast working there.

I.D.S. Menus

2005 - 2006 | Designing Menus

IDS Menus - Coffee Shop Menu IDS Menus - Pizza and Pasta Menu IDS Menus - Make it a Pepsi Combo IDS Menus - Ice Cream Poster IDS Menus - Designer Series Display Boards

International Display Systems was a great company to work for where I was mostly designing the big menu boards you might see at a movie theater or coffee shop. All the items and prices were on magnetic strips so it was easy for the user to mix up the menu. I also created some normal print menus as well as animated graphics in After Effects that were displayed on big screen TVs.

2004 - 2005 | Making Stuff with Mike

PolyPlastics - Anthony and Mike on the Computer PolyPlastics - Anthony and Mike on the Computer alt

Poly was my first job out of college, I started a month before I graduated. It was pretty cool, I operated a large format (6 foot) printer, a vinyl cutting machine, and a giant CAD machine where we created and carved out 3-dimensional products from wood, plastic, metal and foam. I worked with one of my closest friends Mike, and man we had alot of fun making (and breaking) cool stuff.
