Featured work and projects. A large part of my client work is confidential or internal in nature and hence not fit for sharing in a portfolio. Here are some public-facing and shareable projects (some for clients, most self-initiated) I have worked on to date in various contexts. Please note that these projects include some of which I worked on outside the context of The Waving Cat (as a freelancer before, etc). They are listed here because they help illustrate some of the topics I’ve engaged with extensively over time.
