I co-founded Impulcity and helped lead product as CTO for over 3 years.

My Face


This was my portfolio's homepage from 2011-2014.
Turned out to be a big hit, so I figured I'd archive it.

It's fairly simple in theory. It's a massive sprite image, containing 35 photos of me looking various directions. Onhover it changes the bg position so my eyes follow your mouse.

Won't work on older mobile devices, because it contains over 3 million pixels.

Seinfeld Lorem Ipsum


Seinfeld ipsum dolor sit amet...


This was a random idea I had and decided to turn into a one day project.
It's a fun and nostalgic approach to Lorem Ipsum generators utilizing quotes from famous Seinfeld episodes.
I embarassingly used Wordpress since I had set a time limit for myself.

TV Ambiance Lighting


A personal desire, accomplished over 8 weeks.


This project utilizes a few different things. A Raspberry Pi, 132 WS2801 LEDs (24 on the sides, 42 on top/bottom), a little bit of software and a lot of solder.

Takes an HDMI input, screen captures, downsizes to minimal size while retaining unique color border, translates border colors to RGB values and updates the LEDs; and all every 40ms for minimal latency.
