Animated Dancing Luke

This website began as a hobby: a mere diversion from my workaday life as a junior high school student stuck in a small town in the 1990s. As I went through puberty (completing three cycles—hence my signature moustache and sordid browser history), the Web became important to me as an artistic medium. On my website, I could do whatever I wanted as long as it didn’t exceed 5 MB.

To prove I could do whatever I wanted, I studied film in college. The film curriculum taught me how to think clear, deep thoughts (paradoxically, this may have been an effect of Jean-Luc Godard’s early 70s work). I was smart before, but I wasn’t a bona fide intellectual who would be comfortable dropping a little Latin into conversation now and again. During a harrowing screenwriting course, I learned how to write. “Oh, don’t use the most exotic word in your vocabulary?”

Meanwhile, I worked as a Web designer for Wright State University, honing my programming chops and studying ever-geekier languages. After graduating into a bleak economy, I decided to freelance everything! I’ve made my living as an artist, writer, and Web designer. I’m looking for full-time employment because I want to work on more ambitious projects, and everyone is suspicious of freelancers.

My primary interest is the fusion of technology and artistic expression. Hopefully, this website is an example of that. Without further ado, I give you something to look at that isn’t technically pornography for the eight hours a day when you’re at work.
