  • Founder

    2015 - PRESENT
    • Founded my private art practice. Systems/optics/aesthetics.
    • Worked with projects involving the human visual system, which has evolved to take in and interpret an enormous amount of information many times per second, leaving its massively parallel information processing capacity largely unused.
    • Approached visualization in a more innate and sensory-driven fashion–higher bandwidth, lower precision.
    Technologies: Shaders, OpenGL, Clojure, Unity3D
  • Computational Geometry Engineer

    2018 - 2019
    • Worked on the core engine supporting Arkio's computational geometry operations in VR.
    • Implemented various algorithms for spatial segmentation, primitive composition, and solid modeling.

  • Lead Augmented Reality Engineer

    2018 - 2019
    • Built parts of an augmented reality content creation platform and marketplace running on the blockchain.
    • Designed and architected the global positioning and coordinate system translation algorithm which converts from "real world" (geographic) coordinates into AR coordinates.
    • Designed and implemented a land subdivision and ownership solution which allows users to buy parcels of land in the real world through the AR app.

  • Lead Augmented Reality Engineer

    2017 - 2018
    La Siesta Technologies
    • Created an augmented reality application for iOS which helps a Spanish construction company measure and model staircase-attached chair elevators for disabled persons.
    • Designed and implemented a user-friendly application which lets company inspectors easily capture (via AR) the shape and dimensions of the staircase and save it for later processing.
    Technologies: Swift, ARKit

  • Aesthetic Engine 2 (Development)

    Aesthetic Engine 2 is simultaneously a web browser, a generative data sculpture, and a shape-shifting painting. It visualizes the hidden complexity behind our everyday web browsing.

    Each web page is rendered using predefined rules for different groups of HTML tags. The content, which is visible to users in conventional web browsers (paragraphs, images, etc.), is rendered using the thickest shapes. Scaffolding around visible content—all of the “invisible” internal stuff—is rendered using thinner strands escaping from the middle of the structure. JavaScript code, CSS files, and all other externally loaded resources are rendered as twisting lines wrapping themselves around the structure. Lastly, the web page’s code is scraped for all outgoing links (URLs) and each of them is rendered as a long line escaping from the structure outward, therefore visualizing the “connectedness” of the page.

  • Virgin America iOS Application (Development)

    I worked on making the Virgin America iOS app with the award-winning Work & Co agency.

  • Top Eleven for iOS (Development)

    I was the lead developer on the team that built the iOS version of the world's most popular online sports game.

  • BRUTALISM Generative Logo (Development)

    The generative logo for my studio. Check out the code as well (it's mostly ClojureScript): https://github.com/BRUTALISM/BRU-3

  • ObjectiveMixin (Development)

    ObjectiveMixin is a popular open-source library that I wrote for iOS. It gives Ruby-like mixin functionality to Objective-C programs.

  • Spomenik (Development)

    Spomenik is a turn-based city-builder game in which you build a city on multiple levels: in reality, and in its inhabitants’ dreams. I'm making this game independently.

  • Medjed (Development)

    A procedural terrain generator project I worked on in my spare time. It uses volumetric density functions and vector fields to generate the terrain, using no premodeled geometry.

  • Hero of Allacrost (Development)

    Designed and wrote a data scripting interface for loading arbitrary data structures (map tiles, sprites, effects) from Lua and make them visible as C++ objects inside the game engine.

  • Unwelcome Gaze (Development)

    Unwelcome Gaze is a triptych visualizing the publicly reachable web server infrastructure of these companies and the routing graph(s) leading to them. Over many weeks of meticulous network reconnaissance, the routing information has been gathered and persisted locally. From it, a routing graph was reconstructed for each of the three networks. Each graph was then visualized as a generative three-dimensional sculpture, constantly shifting its appearance – just like the data it portrays.

  • Itinerant (Development)

    Itinerant is an experimental weather forecast app, utilizing the human visual perception system (i.e. recognizing shapes and colors) instead of the symbolic interpretation system (i.e. reading words and numbers). It is an experiment in outperforming traditional weather information data displays in terms of how long it takes to parse and understand the information. Even more importantly, it is an experiment in helping to change the nature of that understanding.
