I'm a problem-solver to the core. Whether I'm writing an article, designing and developing software, illustrating a concept, educating my two children on a topic, taking a picture, or just doing a crossword, I love the challenge. This is a place for me to showcase some of my resulting solutions, mostly in the form of writing and photography.
These are long-form pieces, usually involving a bit of research or structured thinking. I write about topics which interest me, which covers a lot of ground.
Confirmation bias leads us to hold false belief with a confidence greater than evidence can justify. Curbing it when making decisions requires patience and rigor. It's a battle that's worth the effort.
Video games, virtual reality, and augmented reality will appear more
lifelike and naturally lit thanks to new realtime raytracing chips and
consoles. I also revisit an old scene created [mumble-mumble] years ago in POV-Ray.
For me, photography is about playing with truth. I like to reduce a scene to its barest components, often resulting in an image loosely tied to reality.
