Collective Detective is a micro-business I founded in 2002 to build communities by connecting people in fun, entertaining, and social ways.
I'm currently working on multiple projects
around the beautiful game and the supporter community in Austin, Texas.
Supporters Union is a collective of soccer supporter groups in Austin, Texas. Our mission is to recruit, connect, and collaborate to demonstrate the size of the soccer market here while we continue to grow it.
Amplifier Austin / MLS in Austin is a community led effort to bring a Major League Soccer team to Austin and a modern supporters group for the Austin Aztex.
From 2008 to 2013, I created and help develop Collectivus, a social location game available as a small prototype. We had a few hundred physical rubber ducks, and thousands of virtual objects located all over the world — we call them "Thingies." These Thingies traveled from place to place, each recording a narrative of the places they've been and people they've encountered.
In 2001, I created CollectiveDetective.org. It was the first and largest (for its time) community for those interested in the growing trend of scavenger hunts, online puzzles, immersive entertainment, and viral advertainment.
In 1998, I decided I wanted to learn how to make web applications and opened up shop as a freelance web development studio called TaxiCafe Media.
