Hey there! 👋 I'm a software developer/devops engineer and creative making things that impact individuals and let people realize their ideas and creative visions.
I currently lead development of the Eternagame research project run out of Stanford University, a Citizen Science game that allows anyone to contribute to research in biomedicine just by playing.
In addition to my technical interests, I also love to create in many different forms - I'm a horn player, composer, AFOL, and occasional graphic designer, 3D artist, and writer. I love experiencing art, creating those experiences for others, and supporting others in doing the same.
In the work I do, I have a few key interests:
You might also see me combining these areas - digital media development as a mechanism for skills development, creative tools, citizen science, scientific discovery games, and so forth.
Luxaritas is the handle I've come to use across my digital identities. This name came by merging three Latin words - lux, caritas, and alacritas. Roughly translated (this was before I took Latin, and my Latin still isn't very good) it correlates to three key things I take to heart: light (making the world a better place), passion (putting my heart into everything I do), and love for all (always treating everyone with respect and dignity).
