Code and Art

There is an odd space between the technical and the creative. They are typically thought of as opposites, but I like to think of them as different sides of the same coin. As both an artist and a programmer, I enjoy exploring this middle ground.

This site is has been around for awhile, and has accumulated my work over my changes in professions and interests. It partly exists to show off my latest work, but it is also an archive of many the ideas I’ve explored.

I work for Mozilla as a Software Engineer. I have an arts background but my work spans from traditional mediums, to digital work, and everywhere in between. Lately I have focused more of my time on creative coding.
