3D Molecule Viewer of PDB files

(Best viewed in 1080p HD) This is another application I built in Unity. It parses Protein Data Bank (.pdb) text files and creates a 3D visualization of the molecular structure in Unity. It includes a 3D file picker to open files from the file system.

PDB parsing code credit to Dr. Peter Kuhn at the Scripps Research Institute, who created the C-ME application, whose demo is on CodePlex.

My attempt to create a HUI – a Holographic User Interface

This was my attempt to simulate gaze from the camera and walking around an object, interacting with a HUI (pronounced as in “…, Dewey, and Louie” or “… Lewis and the News”).

Maineiacs does a Let’s Play video of Shift – A game I created in Unity in 48 hours

He found my game on GameJolt (http://gamejolt.com/games/shift/78051) and took the time to make this Let’s Play video. Glad he enjoyed it. I appreciate the constructive suggestions as well.

Demo/Walkthrough of Shift – A game I created in Unity in 48 hours

This is a game I built in 48 hours based on the Global Game Jam theme of 2015: “What do we do now?”. It’s a first person puzzle game built in Unity. You can find it and play it on GameJolt at http://gamejolt.com/games/shift/78051. There are definitely things I’d like to change/fix, but I had to cut myself off at 48 hours. For example, there are only 3 levels, there are UVs I need to adjust, and I’m told there should be more visual feedback and environmental clues rather than text to tell the player what to do. Anyway, here it is. Music by Stephen Lu.

My Data Day at Build – Azure Elastic Databases, Azure Search, IoT, Azure Stream Analytics, and more

Spent a day on nothing but data at Build.  Azure Elastic SQL Databases, Azure Search, Azure Stream Analytics, Azure Machine Learning.  Tons of new data offerings.  And all in the cloud.  You can read my blog on it here:


Working with BimlScript to ease and automate your SSIS development

Business Intelligence Markup Language (Biml) is a great way to simplify your SSIS development to an easy-to-read XML format. BimlScript expands this even further to allow you to embed .NET code in your Biml to have new Biml dynamically generated with schema changes at your source.  In a recent talk I gave, I discussed what BimlScript can do and gave multiple examples and patterns that you can take and apply to your BI development.

I’ve shared my Slides and Code from the session on my OneDrive at this link:
