Bio

I’m on a mission to save the world, One Idea at a Time. I believe in the power of the human spirit and the abilities inherent in all of us if we just strive towards our full potential. This line of thinking oft times places me at odds with the backward thinkers of the world. To some my thoughts appear to be FAP (FromAnotherPlanet). Go with Light and Love.

My Courses

Problem Solving with Computer Programming

Problem Solving with Computer Programming

Creating computer applications, instead of just using them, will give you a deeper understanding of the essential possibilities of computation. Through weekly problems, students will learn the fundamentals of programming the computer (variables, conditionals, iteration, functions, and objects). These tools are the basic building blocks of programming needed to create cutting-edge graphics applications including interactive art, live video processing, and data visualization. The Java-based ‘Processing’ programming environment is the primary vehicle for the class. The end of the semester is spent developing an idea for a final project and implementing it using computer programming.
