Tony Poor is a computer science student at Carnegie Mellon University with an intense passion for design, elegant yet powerful code, human-computer interaction, beautiful fonts, and sunshine. Pixelshift serves as his home page, showcasing everything from his portfolio of web design to some of the most interesting programming projects he's worked on.
He works as a part-time research assistant with the PhD candidates and faculty of the CMU Usable Privacy & Security (CUPS) Lab, and in his free time thoroughly enjoys web development.
His preferred form of solo procrastination is doodling (and we're talking some prolific doodling here), and his preferred form of team procrastination is a friendly game of billiards. He also has a fondness for typing in third-person, though admittedly it makes him feel a bit awkward. For the straightforward viewer, he's included a brief "about me" fact sheet:
- Trade: Web developer, "computer scientist" in training, humble designer, coder, student, research assistant, enthusiastic pool-player (-shark? nah).
- Tools of the Trade: Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, Dreamweaver, InDesign, Fireworks, Lightwave 3D, Bryce, Eclipse, among others.
- Likes: Mentos, Pepsi, the new suite of Vista fonts, rummy, pool, sleep, and lime jelly beans.
