A masters student at
A recent graduate of NYU's ITP.

I like python, javascript, css (apparently), and making pizza.

Previously, I worked in DC for nonprofits & campaigns doing web.

For Dano's Computational Cameras class (using skills from 3DSAV class), I built a version of the game Pong, where the users control the paddles with their bodies, and the loser's head becomes the ball. 

I used a Kinect, Openframeworks, and OpenNi to track the users. The code for the game itself is super simple, with no win conditions, and the ball speed starts fairly slow (though it gets pretty dang fast). Source code is available here.
