I seek inventiveness

emerging in and from: group collaboration, social networks, distributed systems and natural processes.

I reflect beauty

in the process of distilling and visualizing data from complex networks, information sets and disparate resources.

I craft algorithms

that codify art and design, generating algorithmically creative and fractal forms of digital output.

I bridge worlds

in order to interface with, translate between, and "mash-up" varied disciplines and forms of visionary expression.
