play.matrix: Half Life – Part 1 is now live!

It has been a very productive couple of weeks as I make preparations to release some new content to the website. As I mentioned before, I’ve been experimenting with some gaming content as I capture and commentate on some of my favorite games. Finally, I plan to post several of these videos on YouTube in the course of the next couple of weeks.

First, Part 1 of my Half Life playthrough will lead the pack. Released in 1998, Half Life led the revolution of first-person shooters for the PC. Infamously, the story of Half Life never finished, leaving the franchise on a cliffhanger as the developer shifted their focus.


Welcome back to the 90s as I tackle a pioneer of the FPS genre. In this first part, I step into the shoes of Gordon Freeman and die… a lot. I even added a counter to keep track of the amount of deaths. This game is not very kind to me. Anyway, I hope you have as much fun watching this nostalgia trip as I did making it!

Hey, everyone. How are you? I’m doing pretty well. My name is Steven. I’ve been living in Pittsburgh for a few years now. What sort of projects have I been working on, you ask? Well, I’ve assisted with several indie film productions in that time, mostly directly behind the camera or working with camera operations. It has been pretty fun. I’ve also been working on several other projects individually. This website is a collection of those projects that I do on in my spare time. Please click on the links above to learn about some of the work that I do in digital media and writing. I hope you enjoy my collection, which is a combination of old, archived work and new content I am compelled to share with you. Please feel free to interact, engage, and help me make some friends and colleagues in the creative media communities!
