i like to make computer generated visual effects. this includes still images, animation, realtime screen hacks, eye candy, visual muzak, digital video feedback, mathematical visualization, algorithmic collage, etc. In general i work by writing programs and creating their datafiles; the final pixels are always produced automatically. Still jpeg images, mpeg animation, and source code are all available on the web at my online gallery If you haven't seen the pictures yet, don't bother reading this.

These sections describe the programs i've written and how they work:
