Blog
My blog, where I post my original research, and any interesting techniques I come across. My aim is to help others learn these interesting and useful things as well by providing them with explanations based on first principles (minimal pre-required knowledge) and working, simple source code. I also find that by writing up and teaching these ideas and techniques, that I learn them more thoroughly in the process.

Realtime Raytracer
I have a real time ray tracing game engine that I've been working on that I've used to release a game on google Native Client with. The engine is all software rendered (CPUs only), it's multithreaded, and takes advantage of some high speed raytracing techniques I came up with to help achieve real time rendering without GPU acceleration. Click the link below to check it out (requires google chrome browser version 16 or higher).

About Me
I'm a graphics programmer at Blizzard, working on Starcraft 2 and Heroes of the Storm.

I'm self taught, starting out as a hobbyist, now with over 15 years of professional experience (starting July 1, 2001). I started making games back in the 486 days, before hardware accelerated graphics, using mode 13h and others for 2d and 3d graphics in 16 and 32 bit mode. I've worked at large and small companies, shipping a variety of games on a variety of consoles and PC hardware.

I'm a deep generalist, with specialties including: My other interests include hiking, making music, and martial arts (:
