Thanks for coming!

This site's sole purpose is for me to show off. Follow the links above to view the chronicles of various design projects I have taken up in the last few years. Everything from software and flash devlopment, to wood working projects, to automotive customization.

This site uses a bit a jQuery and several other really goofy tricks I've learned over the years. For the time being, I'm not sure which browers work/don't work. I'm currently developing against FireFox.

Who am I?

My name is Brian. By day I'm a UI developer, by night I'm just another guy that likes to tinker with things.

What do I do?

Where to begin!? I develop software with various languages from B-P (Basic-Python and in between). I rip apart cars, and put them back together. I don't know how to keep a cell phone in a factory setting. I build things from wood using any tool I can find. I play a good varity of instruments, but spend most of my time with guitars.

Why do I do it?

If it has moving parts, I have to see why, and then how can I change it. I want to make things better. Put simply, I like to see things do stuff.

As I mentioned above, my name is Brian. I was born in Maryland and have spent my whole life in the surrounding vicinity. I attended a technical high school with a focus in Engineering, and continued on with Computer Engineering for my B.S. Over the years I've done whatever I can to learn something new. I tend to enjoy everything I do so much that I find it hard to prioritize one hobby over another. My typical out door activities include: kayaking, playing tennis, and working on/fixing/driving cars. My inside activities include: making beer and wine, growing food in my garden, working on computers, mobile app development, playing guitar, drums or piano, and fixing up my house. As a full time software developer I try to spend additional time on keeping up with new technologies I'm not actively using by working on various websites and helping other developers.

insaneintention designs is sort of a business title, and sort of an online alias. It typically follows me on automotive customization sites since I do things that aren't... typical, hense an, insane intention, but also, instead of dealing with a ton of various logins, I can be found on a few open source development sites, or other sites that categorize my hobbies.

  • 2019 Update

    My how does technology change. This site should be completely rewritten using current technologies. Maybe React, but definitely ES6+. Hopefully I get around to it soon... I wonder what my pre-2009 site looked like at this point. Not sure I want to know.

    Time for an update...
    I'm still a developer, I still work on my car, and I still play guitar, but I'm also keeping up with technology. See the latest at, particularly with mobile app development while I spend some time updating this site.

    Fixed the sublinking.

    This site uses JavaScript to load content dynamically. So while it looks best in FireFox, it also hinders a lot of the use of the middle click to open new tabs.

    Revamped the old site. Man, did it need it.

    This is still under development, so while the main links do work, some sublinks do not.
