I'm a technologist, balancing my creative practices between software, hardware, digital and analogue.

Currently doing research in Stable Diffusion workflow design and AI pipelines for generative content authoring. Talk to me if you want to learn more about AI art pipelines and how you can leverage Open Source technologies of this domain at your business.

I specialize in interactive applications, video games and digital media. I facilitate R&D, design, prototyping, development, user experience research, consulting and project management.

I have experience with with VR and mobile application development, while primarily working in Unity game engine, doing everything from 2D/3D art and design, animation, motion tracking, motion control, shaders, sound design, music production and tool development.

Legacy is a wiki-like static site generator written in Python. Designed to convert a folder hierarchy with .txt files written in Markdown with custom metadata and custom link parsers to a cross-linked wiki html site.

Design philosophy:

  • Source content is plain text, markdown formatted and readable outside of html renderer.
  • Source folder structure reflects output page hierarchy.
  • Plain static html, no databases or javascript required.
  • Plain root output retains urls so that individual page relationships can change.
  • Changes over time can be tracked using github commit tree
