I'm a part-time developer, part-time maker, and full-time learner with a passion for pushing interdisciplinary boundaries. My work has two goals: to bridge the gap between artistry and technology; and to empower others to do the same by advancing global education.
By combining my extensive computer science experience and my widespread knowledge of other fields, I see and create things that are innovative and unique. I try to break down my projects for the public so that others may learn from them. I believe that through education and imagination, we can make the world a more beautiful place.
