I'm a computer technologist / artist / composer in the Los Angeles area. I blog about my various projects at krazydad.com.

 

I've done a lot of mosaic art using the Flickr APIs, and co-authored Flickr Hacks, from O'Reilly, with Paul Bausch.

 

I'm a little obsessed with circles, radial symmetry and mechanical instruments.

I work amongst an awesome collective of nerd/hipsters at Topspin in Santa Monica.

 

I did some mosaic posters for squared circle, and a day in the life, here on Flickr:

 

Squared Circle Mosaic: Giant Peach

One of the first things I did on Flickr was to make a number of fun-to-use Flickr Colr Pickrs. Check 'em out!

 

I also made the world's first Flickr Chia Pet, an experiment in collaborative defacement.
