What Floats My Boat
My passion is creating transformative experiences using art and technology, like projection mapped geodesic dome with ambisonic immersive audio, interactive virtual reality experiences, and LED light sculptures. The best part of creating these experiences is seeing how much people enjoy them – I just love putting smiles on faces. I’m also obsessed with my 3D printer, which I’ve used to make some pretty rad connectors and device mounts, and also Baby Yoda lol.
