About

I'm passionate about freedom, in all forms.

I'm a digital artist, creating images from photos and 3D renders.

I'm a software developer, programming in a variety of languages.

I'm an advocate of usability, creating tools that empower all humans.


Open Source is, at its simplest, the practice of supplying source code (computer instructions) with software (instead of obscuring those instructions).

It ensures the person using the software has the option to look at how things are done, verify that the software is doing what is says it is, extend and improve the software, and so on.

A subset of this is the Free Software movement, focusing not just on the practical benefits of software freedom, but on preserving people's freedom as a whole.
