Well, it's been a long time. Graduated from college, moved up to Portland and life's been good. Been working with a start up under an NDA, still under an NDA on a hugy ruby on rails project combining social media sites, google maps, html5 websockets, android and iPhone apps and such.

Aside from that, been a whirlwind. Finally got my head out of the debris and am taking some time to write about what I've been up to.

As far as playing with tech, I have been doing that 24/7 for work so I have been focusing on exploring Portland and learning guitar in my free time, but lately I have started up on some new projects as well.

I have been experimenting with a rails app using mongoDB, html5 web-sockets and webGL through javascript to implement an online 3d MMO game environment using native browser tools.

I have started exploring some visualization tools I have had on my mind for a while.

I am working on a OpenGL 4.0 version of real time bokeh blur using the new pipeline.

These will all have projects pages when they get some more significant development done.


Over the last week I've been working on a real time inverse kinematics solution and I finally have something to show for it!

Right now theres a bug in the code so I'd recommend using the code, I hope to fix this within the week. When the bug's fixed I'm going to write a tutorial and have it available as there really aren't any out there for this.

Whole earth was amazing as always! Now after the brief refresher it's back into it with the website design and school!

If you want to check out the IK solver go to the project page. :)


Whole earth festival is always a time of reflection for me.

I have the next week to get a move on a simple 2d animation system, then its time to jump on one of the games I'm planning and maybe the electric go-kart project will start up again.

I've come up with an earth friendly android app I hope you'll see on the market soon. Aims at providing simple ratings on the carbon impact of products and stores.

Theres always much to do.


Everything has been migrated successfully to dreamhost. Some of the wiki's have changed locations, if you want to find out the new location of a wiki check out the list. The contact form is working and if i was working on a project for you the project is back hosted somewhere as well. If you cant find it you should have gotten an e-mail with the new url, if not send me an e-mail and i'll send it out again. Now if i can just find the time to redesign this site so it doesn't look so ugly...


Alright! New year new host. So far everything's working except the default ruby on rails override rules for the public directory and my mail form.

What this means for you: If you were paying attention to a wiki on the site or helping with one those wiki's are down for now untill I can get some better answers from DreamHost. Also, if your in the mood to contact me the webform is down and you will have to send an e-mail to!

Hopefully soon I'll be working on an amazing game by unkown worlds!
