I'm a programmer with an interest in computer graphics. I spend my time working on animation software, developing p5.js, and working with the creative coding community to make better tools.

A Jalgorithm for Japplying Jeans to Jobjects

Proceedings of SIGBOVIK, April 1, 2023

A super serious use of differentiable rendering.

For years, society has been plagued by the lack of a conclusive answer to the question of how arbitrary things would wear jeans, if they wore jeans. This paper proposes a jalgorithm to determine the mathematically optimal configuration of pants on a silhouette, leveraging recent insights in the fields of computer vision and differentiable rendering.

GLSL Autodiff

Tired of doing math to get normals in your vertex shader? Same. Use this library to write your function once and generate derivatives automatically!

Sometimes, I want to displace mesh vertices in a vertex shader. After doing this, the normals of a surface should change. However, per-vertex normals don't automatically update! Manual updating of vertex normals requires you to take the derivative of your displacement function. This library automates that process so that it takes less time and is less prone to user error.

The Engulfed Cathedral: CS488 final project

July 25, 2018

A raytraced 3d renderer and short animation created with it for Waterloo's computer graphics course.

I used this project to implement graphics techniques such as photon mapped lighting, ambient occlusion, volumetric materials, constructive solid geometry, and inverse kinematics, along with sampling methods for inverse procedural modelling.

Arts and Design

In my spare time, I draw, make animations, and write music. I make a lot of sarcastic cover songs as well as serious music.
