I gave a TED talk last week! Here’s an article about it. I wonder if the video of the talk will get posted soon?
Leading a group discussion at the end of the event. I don’t remember what I was talking about at this moment, but it sure looks like I was making an important point!

We’ve been working on this one for a while now; just got to see the teaser trailer. It’s a pretty cool topic, and it has some great vis (obviously)!
We only worked on a couple of shots for this, and I hardly know anything about the rest of the movie. Can’t wait to see it! My first IMAX film!
Wrapping up work on “Solar Superstorms”. Tom Lucas, the director, is in town today. We’ll be previewing the rough cut at Staerkel Planetarium tonight. In a couple weeks, the celebrity narrator will be recording the script (Can I announce who it is yet?? You’re gonna love it)! I’m so excited!
