About your humble narrator

I’m an artist by trade as well as a full-time web designer and developer. I’ve been working the web professionally for over ten full years now, and have been building sites for myself since Mosaic was in beta and day-glo colors were all the rage. One dotcom bubble and a BFA degree later and I’m steadily employed at the University of Texas School of Law, a very nice place to be.

In between working for the university and freelancing, I continue to explore drawing and photography as part of a studio practice. I also try to squeeze in time to keep up on the research in diverse fields, as I’m passionately interested in:

  • the humanities: art, language, literature, music, art history (including contemporary studies), illustration, cartoons, mythology and religion (mostly in the historical sense), politics, anatomy;
  • technology: artificial vision, imaging technology, web design and development (and the related fields of accessibility and usability), security, the open source + free software movement, social interaction, math;
  • and way too many other things to list…
