Harmony 3 Holiday Update

‘Tis the season for a big update to Harmony 3!

50 new holiday-inspired levels await… complete with new effects, new music and a few other festive surprises!  Featuring now nearly three hours of beautiful music by renowned ambient artist Hammock.

Keep an eye out in early December for this update, coming to the App Store, Google Play and Amazon!


Word² is Live!

After months of planning and preparation, design and development, Word² is now available in the App Store!  Word² is a challenging game where you must unscramble each word not just once, but twice.


Inspired by word squares which date well into ancient times, each square contains words in pairs that can be read both horizontally and vertically. Words are scrambled and your objective is to use hints, clues and logic to decipher each square.

Here’s an image of the ancient “Sator Square”.  This one is extra-special as not only do words pair up, but they’re also palindromic (same word spelled forwards or backwards).


Much thought, preparation and love has gone into creating this colorful game which I sincerely hope you enjoy.  Grab a good pair of headphones and download Word² today in the App Store!   Thanks for your support!


Say Hello to Word²

I am pleased to announce my newest game, Word².

Word² is a challenging game where you must solve each word not just once, but twice.  Inspired by word squares which date well into ancient times, each square contains words in pairs that can be read both horizontally and vertically.  Squares have been shuffled and your objective is to use hints, clues and logic to put each square back together.

View screenshots and watch the trailer at wordsquaredgame.com, and stay tuned in November for the launch!



A Happy Family in Harmony

In about a week, Harmony 1 gets a shiny new icon to bring the look and feel more in line with the remainder of the Harmony series.  At its core, each game in the Harmony series brings a relaxing experience centered around the harmonious blend of color and music.  Harmony 1’s icon was missing that one all-important component…  music!


Blendamaze is Back!

Nearly three years ago I had a vision to create fun games for mobile based on ideas that had never been tried before.  This journey began with our first game, Blendamaze, which launched in September 2012.

Remember how the App Store looked in 2012?

Blendamaze App Store

Over the past three years this passion has become a reality.  It is our vision…

Extraordinarily creative apps & games.

Following Blendamaze’s original launch, we’ve built Foresee (coming back soon), har•mo•ny, har•mo•ny 2, Alpha Omega and most recently, har•mo•ny 3.

Still something was missing.

Blendamaze had developed a series of bugs and wasn’t updated for the latest versions of iOS and latest iOS devices.  It felt like we were leaving out this foundational piece to our company – that our product offering was incomplete.  The game needed a major overhaul and that’s what we’ve dedicated a large portion of this year towards.

Reviewing nearly three years of great feedback from our fans has led us to take a hard look at game mechanics and the overall gameplay experience.  I am a firm believer that less is oftentimes so much more and our desire is to bring a beautiful, colorful game to adults and kids alike. Because of this, we’ve removed a number of gameplay elements and overly-complicated levels that only served to get in the way.  Complimentary and Analogous stages are gone as they were just too difficult and this only hurt playability of the game.   All in-app purchases have been removed and there are no ads in the game.

Today Blendamaze returns to the App Store, rebuilt and better than before.  Click or tap here to download now.

Thank you for your support!!

Blendamaze coming back to the App Store!

Blendamaze is coming back to the App Store, rebuilt from the ground up!  Blendamaze is a unique and colorful twist to the classic labyrinth board game.  The marble becomes your virtual paintbrush as you blend primary, secondary and tertiary colors in over 100 handcrafted levels.



This was actually my very first mobile game I created back in early 2012.   Over the past couple years it has been enjoyed by numerous adults and kids alike.  Art teachers have even used it on iPads in the classroom to teach elementary students color theory! Continue reading…

BorderLeap Games

The leap across the border…

After 3 years, 5 games, 1 weather app, balancing 2 full-time jobs, countless 80 hour weeks and more cups of coffee than I can count, I’m happy to say that I have made the leap across the border (pun intended) to making BorderLeap my full-time career.  Actually, the transition took place back in May, but I have not had a place to share the experience and the stories that surrounded it.  That place is now here :)

To say that the past three years have been a roller coaster of a ride would be an understatement.  I’ve wanted to create this web site to not only showcase games I’ve built but also share about the processes in designing and developing them.

So without further ado, welcome to the new BorderLeap site!  There will be much more coming…
