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 Italian tradition of Comedia dell’arte comes alive in Tarocco: A Soldier’s Tale, a kaleidoscopic narrative about one soldier’s journey out of the trenches of the first World War, and into the mesmerizing dreamworld of a 15th century Italian Tarot deck. Trapped in German-occupied Piedmont, the dying soldier uses a deck of playing cards (the 500-year-old Tarocco Piemontese) to weave himself a fantasy of ruin and redemption and keep the dark reality of war at bay.
The Magician… The Hanged Man… Death…
Each new card brings to the stage a mysterious character from the Tarocco, leading the hero through twenty-one wondrous labyrinths of the human imagination.
Handmade Venetian costumes and sets will adorn Asheville’s greatest circus performers in each breathtaking act. Nashville composer Marcin Bela’s original score will be performed live using both electronic and traditional Italian folk instruments, and Donovan Zimmerman of the Triangle’s Paperhand Puppet Intervention will be designing the show’s mask and puppet construction. Opening on the centennial of Italy’s entry into WWI, Tarocco will be plunging into new territory and climbing to new heights (literally and metaphorically) that will surpass even Animalia in its scope and ambition.
I contributed live projection mapping and visual control of the three screens, as well as animation designed for dancer interaction during the Star scene.
