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.

With the quiet dissolution of Eucalyptus and the Kamikaze Koalas in late 2008, drummer Dylan Banks set his sight on a new goal: bringing people together for the love of music.
The Family Funk is that brainchild, a joint project initiated by Banks, drummer Ricky Taft, and bassist Andrew Price, in an effort to bring together some of the most talented musicians across Atlanta to create a massive funk party explosion onstage. With a rotating lineup that included members of Entropy, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and many more, there was always something new to see, whether it be in sextet, octet, or dodectet form.
The band has played many venues and festivals around Atlanta, including The Five Spot, Smith’s Olde Bar, Sweetwater Brewery, The Goat Farm, TNS East Atlanta, Outlaws Outdoors, Wheelbarrow Festival, and Georgia Tech. They have also visited popular college towns Athens, Carrollton, and Raleigh, NC.
Acting as the first, second, or sometimes third percussionist (in addition to a drummer), my focus was mainly on accenting different rhythms and supplying polyrhythms to add well-timed complexity to the differing, oft-improvised instrumentation.
