Hello friends and onlookers,
Hmm, where to start? My name is Schuyler Meyer (pronounced like "Sky — ler My — er").
As for my dreams and aspirations, my ultimate goal is to create immersive experiences. Whether they be happy and
exciting for people to relive or escape to, more sensitive and emotional for people to better understand the
struggles of others or to learn about history past, or simply awe-inspiring and epic. The tools used could be any
number of things, such as virtual or augmented reality, in the form of a video game or animation, or a photograph.
I, myself, am always fascinated and inspired by those that are able to create or capture the emotions of their
subject and environment, in any multitude of forms — game, movie, book, photograph, etc.
In regards to the more tangible and technical stuff, I recently graduated from Clarkson University in Potsdam, NY with a
bachelor's degree in software engineering and a second bachelor's degree in digital arts and sciences. While there,
I worked on some really cool projects — both for research and class as well as for fun. As one of the student
photographers for the school (both marketing and athletic departments), I also did a lot with photography. I
probably missed out on one or more social events because I was always editing photos. And I even got to TA a
photography class as well. (To see the gritty details, see below. To see more of my photography, check out my
photography site, here
In addition to photography and other projects, I was also an officer (or E-Board as we called it) for four different student run clubs — Baseball Club
(Historian, Photographer, Webmaster, Player
); Video Game Club [CUGI — Clarkson University Gamers Initiative]
(Treasurer, Head and Founder of the Game Creation Committee
); Photo Club
); and Anime Club
) — as well as the team photographer for the Men's and Women's Club Hockey teams.
Before we move on, a note about this website — it is a personal one. A personal project of a personal website.
I have created and written everything on here from scratch, from the photos, logos, and backgrounds, to all the
underlying HTML and CSS. While I do have a degree in software, I had never taken any classes in HTML before — I
self-taught myself HMTL / CSS through the many tutorials on the internet for this website project. With
that being said, as you scroll down, you may notice my software senior design project was created using HTML
(among other things) — while it is true that that project was my first experience with HMTL, there was no formal
"teaching", my team was learning and piecemealing as we went along. That project was more of a taste, where this personal
website project is more of the full meal.
