I enjoy programming, computer security, Python, writing useful software, making web applications, bicycles, vlogging, and helping others learn programming. I'm from Houston and went to school in Austin before moving to San Francisco at the beginning of 2007.

My personal site is

I wrote a book to teach kids Python game programming by examples. The book is complete and available under a Creative Commons license at

Current projects include:

  • A 3D laser scanner system that can be made from free software and off-the-shelf parts.
  • Revisions to the Python book.
  • A Craigslist notification website.
  • Virtual museum software project.
  • Virtual tour author software to let people make their own Google Street-view style website.
