hello! i'm james. i live in edinburgh, scotland with my lovely wife krysta. my interests include fantasy and science fiction literature, procedural content generation, iceland, arcade machines, werner herzog's filmography, virtual worlds, graph theory, fonts, magical realism, venice beach, simple user interfaces, and artificial intelligence.
currently i work for rockstar games as a senior ai programmer. previously i worked at the institute for creative technologies in los angeles where i researched cognitive assessment techniques using virtual reality
i recently started writing a sci-fi web novel called settlers of the void.
it's about a ship that crash lands on a recently terraformed planet
and the society that the crew builds together afterwards. if you like
that sort of thing, i recommend you give it a read starting here. new chapters go up every tuesday.
