I couldn't resist some slow motion shots of the Hosta plants in our garden. They never get wet. :) Might be something like the water lilly that has a complex structure at the nano level that shrugs off water.

It is beautiful.  Even very relaxing to see the water flow!

Since the earliest days of the Oculus Kickstarter, the Rift has been shaped by gamers, backers, developers, and enthusiasts around the world. Today, we’re incredibly excited to announce that the Oculus Rift will be shipping to consumers in Q1 2016, with pre-orders later this year. http://bit.ly/RiftQ1

I put Crashed Lander on sale this weekend over on itch.io. Kind of a pay what you want deal with a minimum of $1.20 to discourage Steam key resellers. 

They have a feature that lets you set a goal for your sales total which I think helps drive sales. Certainly helped me this weekend. Some crazy/nice person payed $250 for the game. o.O Don't know if it was a fan of my work or a VR enthusiast or what. Whoever it was, they payed for most of the Rift DK2 that I ordered yesterday.  *Thank you anonymous Internet person! *

Actually did pretty well in addition to that massive donation - almost met my goal with an additional 100 purchases. People sure love a bargain priced game.

I'm planning a sale on Steam this month, too which I'm hoping will add another surge of players - and income. My daily sales on Steam have not been as high as I'd hoped. Pretty much lost in the crowd there so far.

We have a new toy in the house - an inexpensive quadcopter with a built-in camera (syma x5c-1). Flies well for $60 and takes OK video and pics. The images are heavily processed or compressed in an odd way. Kind of neat, they look very painterly.

Introduction
I'm following my creative whims, exploring the intersection of art and technology. Currently obsessed with creating games and sims in Unity, animating fractals with Mandelbulb 3D, and sculpting in Zbrush. I also enjoy creating meditative/experimental videos using Processing, After Effects, and Sony Vegas.

I've worked as a cook for 25 years, but now I'm working on Indie games and other creative digital projects. My first game, Crashed Lander, launched in June 2014! Now I'm working on a sci-fi farming simulation called XenoFarm.
