This is my sixth year at Minnesota as a PhD student in computer science. My advisor is Vicki Interrante. My research interests are in non-photorealistic rendering in virtual environments.

I got an MS in computer science from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2005. I got a BS in computer engineering from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln in 2000. I was a software engineer at IBM Rochester for a few years in between.
