About

Working With Karl is Fun!

I believe strongly in the ideas of cooperation over and against competition and in Open Source Software, over closed proprietary models. I believe that the greatest innovations come when groups of people set aside their differences to solve problems in a fashion founded on imagination overseen objectively.

A child of the 80′s, I was born in Washington and have been in permanent residency there ever since.

For years now, I have been a huge fan of CG art / animation and hope to raise my skill level.
