Many business processes could benefit from analysis and redesign; efficiency is important,
but so is effectiveness.
It doesn't help to have an efficient customer service process if your customers are unhappy.

Graphics design / production.
Much of the work I have done is with
POV-Ray, a freeware package
that allows you to develop and generate stills and animations
using 3D ray-tracing.
I have been working with the program since 1993, and I believe
there is a strong need for 3-d visualization of complex data, and
that need will increase.
This first one is a blatant, unabashed re-work of 3DWorld magazine image
from Issue 33, Page 11, article on Mental Ray for Free.
I re-did the image in POV-Ray; I did not scan it or otherwise copy
it, but simply re-created the image in POV. It went pretty quickly,
the hardest part was aligning the rings, and I don't have it just
right yet. But given the time spent, it's not bad.
Clinical Trials 3d bar graph:
Some visualization of data: I'd like to do more of this, and
would like to set something up where person could export Excel
or other data to a CSV file and import it to POVRay, and
produce these kinds of graphics.
It would snaz up presentations, and could be very useful for
visualization of complex data sets.
I wanted to build a visual of William Gibsons' cyberspace.
This image is pretty simple, given the movie work that has been done
since then. I would like to improve upon this soon,
but like everything, it's a matter of time.
This I developed from free poser model posted on the web, and some Matrix graphics. I use it
for my Windows background:
This I developed for a friend for his business:
These two I recently (early June 2014) developed because I work for IBM:
These are shots of a Java3D application I've been working on that roughly corresponds to
the bad guy's mainframe view in the 1995 film, Hackers:
This is the home page screen shot of an application I developed while at
Michigan State University. It illustrates the clean design I like to use.
This is another page in the application. It lists the "Invoice Category"
records. The other record pages are similar.
(I will have more samples soon.)
