What is up?!

Okay been a bit, what is new?! First it’s personal, then some pictures. For added effort, a couple links to some ‘Braindance’ and ‘micro house’ I would be caught listening to.

I’ve just completed my finals for an A.I. for Robotics class. Wow. It’s was a wonderful follow-up to my first class, Intro. to Artificial Intelligence. My brain has been stretched in good ways, and my Python programming chops are up.

It was fascinating to learn about what used to be a mysterious concept to me. I’m not sure how I’ll use my new found powers, but I’ll try and use them for good. Obama asked the nation to ‘get educated’ and I’m doing my part. Even better, both classes were free! If you have any interest in Computer Science (of which A.I. is part of) I suggest checking out UDACITY. It almost goes without saying but Khan Academy was part of these efforts.

Work – you gotta do it and I’ve been busy, working for Lowes while on duty at Mass Market apparently.

2 wide shots of garden carpet unrolling around 11 seconds in. Houdini, mantra, Nuke. Maya, Arnold.

CG Sup. I got my hands all over this one, but the credit is certainly shared with my friends! Maya, Arnold, Nuke. Vray for door knobs.

And just in case you’re not sure ‘what we did’.

Lastly, I can’t take any credit for the paint simulations (that was ILP), but I did the pre and post visualization. Don’t worry though, I’ll be getting my hands wet soon enough. Maya, Naiid, V-Ray, Nuke.


Now for some fuggin jams! This is typically the kinds of things I listen too while working. First some Braindance by Global Goon…

Then some ‘micro house’.

High resolution version of the above picutre.
It’s been a few years since my 2007 demo reel, I hope you enjoy it.

You can find a detailed list of my responsibilities for the various spots on my resume page. Plus I’m happy to discuss ‘how we did it’. That’s the fun part.

This was edited on my Debian Linux 6.0 “squeeze” distribution (64-bit) with Kdenlive. I used Quicktime compressed with JPEG maximum quality for the intermediate codec from original source material. Running on an Intel Core i7 CPU. The playback was pretty amazing. This is why I donate to free and open source software and you should to.
