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.

The summer of ’08 was a wonderful time for a lot of us. For me, it meant a Spanish summer in the beautiful port town of Barcelona. Little did I know upon embarking on my study abroad that I would be overwhelmed by the gratuitous use of open computing (Ubuntu, anyone?) and a world of new media far beyond my expectations.
In being overwhelmed, I managed to immerse myself in this computing trend, attending a workshop with Hans Cristoph-Steiner, one of the leading developers for the PureData programming language (more or less the open source version of MAX MS/P). In this workshop I learned the beauty of using innovative ways to control audio and visual projects.
While I focused on using the sixaxis ps3 controller and other HID gamepads to experiment with music, my friend Blackili Milhose was working on video manipulation using the affordances of his MacBook. When the week was over, we decided to combine our knowledge and observe the abnormalities…
Our creation, being revised here and there over the past year and a half is the OpenVJ platform. It can be called a video mixer, it can be called a video manipulator, but I’d like to quote a wise man in calling it “The coolest visualizer I’ve ever played.”
Using a gamepad, the user has the ability to do the following:
