Ashley Michaud
1998-2008



I started a company called Flash Outlet at the ripe age of 16.

At age 18 I was ranked the #1 Flash developer worldwide out of 400,000+ developers.
* By Macromedia, Inc. (The inventors of flash) who were purchased by Adobe.

For this, they wrote my name on the credit page within the software Flash 5, 6, & 7.
The credentials & accomplishments I achieved at such a young age was astonishing.

Clients include:
Universal Music, Motown, Coolio,
Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, P-Diddy,
Cash Money Records, Napster, Autodesk,
Vans, Sony, over 300 clients in 10 years.

In 2008, I switched directions towards game design.
