Welcome, spindling interweb user.
Don't fear, I'm a Computational Media artist.
What does that mean?
I make films, websites, show flyers, do projection mapping, make music, visuals, and also challenging installation art. I am forever interested in aiding humankind by way of artistic design. I have worked on big projects for Fortune 500-funded startups, and for major universities, but I also have a big heart for the little guys. As a freelance web-developer, I have created a niche (and potential trend) for helping non-profits and social entrepreneurs to achieve their dreams and better this great planet. As an artist, I've shifted perspectives to a world of weird, and as a filmmaker, I hope to excavate the ancestry of the soul through the film Axé Orixá.

Assignment: [LCC 3314 – African Film and New Media Weekly Assignment #2]
Create a cinematic micronarrative (concise, poignant causal event between actors and objects in a social situation) that features a single type of interaction that affects how the story is told that is either:
Summary: For this project I went with the first choice, and with the added criteria of no spoken words, made a music-based piece built in Flash and Final Cut Pro that tells a narrative using an animation style inspired by the work of South African artist William Kentridge, utilizing looseleaf paper with pencil drawings. The story is about a man named Gimbaja who enters the dreamworld (or is it?) and meets his griot spirit, which puzzles him as to which world is the real world. Big thanks to the group The Books, for their song “Be Good To Them Always” which follows the plotline almost frighteningly.
Personal Contributions: Everything from drawing the actual characters and animations, to editing the character in Flash and Final Cut Pro.
