About

I make devices involving light, electronics, and music which fall at the intersection of art and engineering. Usually these projects have some interactive component with electronics controlled with Arduino. I’ve built musical light instruments like a giant LED dome, optical imaging systems like my optical CT scanner, and devices for visualizing data like my wooden disc player.

I love coming up with ideas, working on the mechanical, electrical, and optical design, and building them in my small home shop. I make videos describing the design process and share my work on Instructables with detailed schematics and all the design files. I plan to share even more of my works in progress (and digress) with Patreons. 

I do these projects in my spare time and fund them myself. Your support will enable me to try more ambition builds and supply equipment for implementing new ideas.
