squarepoet – I work on mobile games for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Check out Tiny Piano and Tiny Guitar!

cooliris – From 2007 to 2010, I worked on an embeddable 3D wall at this Palo Alto startup. I started the project from scratch, built it on Flash and Papervision 3D, and helped grow it to 5M monthly users. The embeddable wall has been used on Yahoo!,, Wall Street Journal, and other top sites.

digital pen & paper interfaces – My PhD thesis contributed techniques for software that combines pen, paper, and computer interfaces. One of my projects was a paper notebook for biologists that would associate your handwritten notes to photos you captured out in the field.


travel – Sue and I like to experience different cultures. Together, we've been to Japan, France, Italy, Spain, England, Greece, South Africa, Zimbabwe, UAE, Australia, and Mexico....

food – Awesome food is the spice of life. When I find time, I enjoy experimenting with cooking interesting dishes. Sometimes these experiments work, and sometimes they don't. :-)

wedding - We got married in 2010 in Palo Alto, CA.
