Technical

I studied Symbolic Systems at Stanford University. Symbolic Systems is like Computer Science with more Artifical Intelligence and a better name. Now I work for Google and frustrate myself with data visualization on the side. See more here.

Creative

I've been making art since forever. I concentrated in Human Computer Interaction, dabble in hard-core Product Design, and do lots of circus. I also make junk metal sculptures. You can see more art here.
