At Apple, I have been making contributions to the USD for Maya project, as part of my work within Apple, including various bugfixes, adding new features such as blendshape export support, support for import chaser plugins and importing USDZ textures, among others, and being the primary reviewer for the code that we submit to Autodesk on a regular basis.
Everything else I am currently working on is unannounced/unreleased.
Most of the projects I work on are under NDA for obvious reasons, so I won't be able to share them here. However, if you want a general idea of what I do and how I do it, please take a look at my Github or Bitbucket.
Some personal code projects I'm happy with include:
libss, my own super-simple libraries that I use across several of my own applications: https://bitbucket.org/sonictk/libss
Hot-reloading compiled code in Maya: https://github.com/sonictk/maya_hot_reload_example_public
Sample deformers plugin for Autodesk Mudbox: https://bitbucket.org/sonictk/mudbox-deformers
If you'd like to see more, simply peruse my repositories, or take a look at my blog.

While working at Frostburn Studios, I designed and implemented the studio's fledging art asset pipeline, integrating ftrack into 3ds max, which was the studio's primary DCC at the time. I also worked on setup of all tools and the Amazon S3 backend required to hold the art assets at the time.
Technical Animator. Did in-game/cinematic character animation, along with writing asset pipeline tools, shaders/lighting development and helping with debugging gameplay programming when needed.
Worked as a FX artist, responsible for environmental/abilites visual effects.
