PhD student and maker of Many Interesting Things
I'm an academic with the Expressive Intelligence Studio at UC Santa Cruz, a group of researchers studying new ways to connect computers and creativity, from interactive storytelling to social simulations to laser-cut robots.
Procedural Content Generation has been my passion for more than ten years, and I've worked on big projects (I made the planets on Spore) to little games and experiments and hardware startups.
Watch this space for more strange creativity experiments to come out of my dissertation! And kick me a dolla-bill to help support my research (or buy more coffee)!
