(Please note that I am currently spending more time away from the computer than I have in past years and may not respond to emails quickly)

I am a computer scientist, music composer, and origami designer living in rural upstate New York. I’m currently working as a Research Engineer with Galois. My research areas have spanned artificial intelligence, programming languages, computational linguistics, and generative models for music. I have previously done work in bioinformatics and geoinformatics, working with DNA and seismic data respectively.

I regularly compose music, both with and without the aid of algorithms, and I always have some creative project or another going. I have released three albums on BandCamp and published two origami books.

On the side, I am a long-time aquarist, keeping snails, hermit crabs, sea anemones, and corals. More recently, I also started keeping chickens and trying to become more self-sufficient in various aspects of life.
