We create digital media at the speed of commerce.

Hi, I’m Milap.  It’s pronounced sort of like “tilapia” and is a verb meaning “to meet.”   Welcome to my portfolio.

I’m a scientist and programmer and own a web design firm in Maryland.  We’ve produced or provided technical consulting and SEO services to nearly 100 sites with clients ranging from Salon Nuuvo to the Rare Genomics Institute to the NYGOP as well as the websites of political candidates and commentators from both sides of the aisle.

My corporate site portfolio includes industrial chemical manufacturersdrilling and engineering firms (TJ Cross Engineers), political lobbying firms, and venture-capital backed pharma startups.  Our strategic partners and network have raised financing or sold companies for a total of over $200MM.  A list of acquired partner ventures is available on request.  I am focused on a project to bring nutrition to the developing world through a media vehicle in partnership with several friends and colleagues.  

I’ve worked on a number of high-responsibility projects in my biologics career, including the manufacture of rapid vaccines against Zika, Ebola, H1N1, and H7N9 as a contractor for BARDA, the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority for the U.S. Government’s Office of Preparedness.  I have also worked for the first scientists to deliver the gene silencing technology RNAi through a bacterial vector, for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Chemistry Department, and several other laboratories and great scientists.  I currently work for a multinational drug company where I am responsible for molecular cloning.  

Need a website built for your startup or established company?  We use CSS3 animation for its simplicity, cross-browser compatibility, and responsive design elements.  I personally also code in Flash and XML.  Our technical lead develops in PERL and PHP.  CSS scripting allows one to create beautiful web animations that work nicely with both PHP and HTML5 and across browsers and across devices.  I enjoy programming for the same reason some people like to go fishing: it’s relaxing to create.

Attention to detail, precision, and tireless effort are hallmarks of bioscience that I carry into my programming career.  As a hobby, I’ve also studied magic for about 15 years now.  Here are a few of my personal animations and links to magic videos and selected projects.

This is one of my favorite effects, made in Trapcode Particular.  Particular is a language that allows you to render individual particles which behave with organic motion.  Here, vector acceleration mimics snow bouncing off of an artificial ground.  It’s very simple and based on public scripts, but I really enjoyed learning to use it.

This effect seemed appropriate for Valentine’s Day.

 

I considered hacking Facebook to make this my cover photo, but unfortunately, I’d have to downgrade it to GIF, which really loses a lot of quality.

 

Below is an old After Effects video with some of my favorite quotes.  I really like some of the transition effects.
