I was born in Madison, Wisconsin and studied art and physics at the University of Wisconsin — Madison, receiving my doctorate in physics there in 1996.
After working for several years in the field of physics, and exhibiting artwork in several US states, I now have a small software consulting company, NPX Designs, Inc., working primarily in scientific and other high-performance computing. Currently NPX Designs is focusing on upgrades and maintenance for the control software used in world’s largest neutrino detector located at the South Pole. I also pursue independent visual art and programming projects. I live in Chicago, IL, USA.
