I am a researcher and practitioner exploring the history and frontiers of expressive computation, especially in the areas of simulation, narrative, and natural language.
I'm from Minneapolis and I live with my wife, Nina, in Santa Cruz, California.
Right now, I'm finishing up my PhD at the University of California, Santa Cruz, where I'm a member of the Expressive Intelligence Studio. I also work part-time with Spirit AI as an AI Specialist. I'll enter the job market in 2018.
