About Me

Portrait of Jon

I'm a software developer and graduate student based in Orono, Maine. I really enjoy creative coding; I've done projects all over the place, from fluid simulation to articulatory speech synthesis. I like learning new things. Someday, I'd like to present at SIGBOVIK or SIGGRAPH.

Currently, I'm working toward my Master's degree in Spatial Information Science and Engineering. My work focuses on the use of augmented reality technology to help people with sensory impairments to navigate.
