Software developer, artist and member of digital art collective goto10. He has been working with Free Libre Open Source Software (FLOSS) for about a decade, and this has warped his mind to the point of no return. In 2002 he started developing PDP, an image and video processing extension for Pure Data. Later he created Packet Forth, a scripting language for media processing to further explore the interface between artist and computer from a programming language perspective. Currently he is working on PURRR, a forth based interactive programming language for PIC microcontroller chips. He uses the tools he develops to create musical and audiovisual performances that investigate (semi-) generative systems. His main focus here is to maximize actuation without sacrificing coherence.
