I enhanced Holiday Inn Express's Asian-Pacific Google map with a number of useful Jquery functions, including counts of current and upcoming hotels in a key, grouping of locations for UI noise reduction, and a menu-driven interface.

Designed by Egreen Web Services, I implemented interactive form elements, including my favorite feature, star ratings that updated a graphic indicate the value of the star rating. Simple to do, but helpful to the user.
Using MelonJS I was able to create this rudimentary video game in which Nina has to clean the house and find four items that her family is missing. It's no Halo, but it's a start? (For sound, this needs to be run in Chrome or Firefox.)
This classically styled, but internet "oriented" stamp was created with a silly picture I took of my niece. I'll make one for you too!
My new Jquery plugin allows you to add pan and zoom navigation to your images just by adding image map code to your HTML. But don't bother with a description, the proof of its coolness is in trying it out!
