I work full-time on (implementing) web graphics APIs in Google Chrome. My work is open source and easily found online.
I'm big into computers and physics, especially computer graphics, physical approaches to graphics, computational approaches to physics, and sometimes programming languages. I love helping others learn, and learning with them. I like things like display tech, cameras, sensors, optics, color, and perception, too... but I don't know as much about them.
In my limited free time, I like to do things I think are great. (shockingly.) Here's some stuff I've done.

all of this was done back when I was in school – most recent first, roughly
[WebGL] Deferred shading renderer
[Rust] A raytracer with primitive photon mapping
[Rust] A very small, basic path tracer a la smallpt
[WebCL] GPU Dynamic Fracture in the Browser
[CUDA] A GPU-accelerated path tracer
A smoke simulator/renderer
A modular volumetric renderer
Invincible 3 – use time-bending powers to fight time-traveling invaders
Invincible 2 – help the Capitalosaur escape Kola Superdeep Borehole
Invincible 1 – explore a puzzling cave by taking advantage of disposable labor
Chickens – a networked platformer with live-editable world and custom UI toolkit
Witfell – a 4D, uh, board game.
