Hi my name is Ben. I live in Oakland, CA. I enjoy writing code, making art, and everything in between.
Art and technology. That is the name of the game my friends! The two are very intertwined. Art helps me approach computer science from a unique direction, making for exciting ideas! I have been creating media using computers long enough to be very impressed that I can make rounded corners using one line of CSS.
I work in Lucasfilm's Advanced Development Group, part of ILMxLab. We investigate new media, with applications in home entertainment, art installations, theme parks, and feature film production. I am a generalist engineer there. What that entails so far is building lightsabers you can wield and droids you want to be best buds with.
My employment history includes Double Fine Productions, Pixar Animation Studios, Electronic Arts, and the Shared Reality Lab at McGill University. I am a graduate of McGill University, where I studied computer science and cognitive science; a rather swell pair of sciences if you ask me.
I'm always on the lookout for fun and exciting work; if you'd like to chat, feel free to drop me a line over twitter.
