Color Space – Visualizations

In support of some work related to color theory and linguistic relativity, I wrote some Python code to create visualizations of the RGB color space. A demo of some of the possible visualizations can be seen below (note, the animated GIF was created using GIMP): The relevant code follows (Python 3.7): Lorem ipsum

Color Theory & Linguistic Relativity

I’ve recently been spending some time better understanding color theory, specifically as it relates to linguistic determinism and relativity. As I feel myself beginning to move away from this area of study, I wanted to document a few notes and observations, in case I wanted to return in the future. The above video covers mostly […]

Bootstrapping Model Data

As part of an active project, I’m exploring ways to iteratively build a dataset of images for use in training classification models. This article documents some early activity, but does not reach conclusion on any repeatable processes. Problem Overview For this example I’m working to build an image classification model which is able to identify […]

About me

I fell in love with programming and technology at a very young age, and have ever since been pursuing that obsession.

I spent the first 16 years of my career in a small technology company, in a large variety of roles. This provided amazing first-hand experience with the inherent challenges and opportunities found within startups.

Striking out on my own in 2018, I’m now working to maximize the time and resources I can spend advancing interesting technologies with talented people.
