Welcome to Red Lightning

A collection of my random creations.


Android App Development

Over the years I've written a number of apps for Android devices:

  • Dice A tabletop RPG dice roller for Android Wear
  • Red Automate An app that allows you to change your phone settings based on triggers like where you are or what time of day it is
  • Starfall A game where you protect a planet from ever more rapidly approaching asteroids
  • GM Assistant A tool for Pathfinder GMs to generate random treasures, encounters, and more
  • Red Torrent One of the first fully featured Torrent clients for Android
  • Game Clock A speed chess type clock for time constraining games

Trust Me, I'm an Idiot Trust Me, I'm An Idiot

A midly lighthearted video series on me learning a random collection of skills. Join me as I attempt, with varying degrees of success, to reignite the idea of the modern renaissance man. I'll tackle nearly everything:

  • Home Remodeling and Maintenance
  • Auto Repair
  • Carpentry
  • Woodworking
  • Programming
  • Learning to play an instrument
  • and more!

Vidoes are released hopefully once a quarter, but as this is a channel run by an idiot I can make no promises.

I have written a couple of short stories!

Like many people, I would like to try my hand at writing a book. I've been a life long fan of science fiction and fantasy novels, so that is what I'll be attempting. No, I don't think it will be the "next great American novel" that they will teach in classrooms for generations. Nor do I expect a big movie deal. I mean that would be pretty sweet, but we can't all be Martin Weir and get Matt Damon to play a roll in our first novel. Still, it should be a fun project that will likely take a few years.
