About

Hey, my name is Aslan. I’m a designer and technologist. I am always refining my craft, and enjoy striving for creative and innovative solutions to problems. At heart I view myself as a craftsman, whether I’m working in code, or with pixels (or something else!). My interests include open source, civic tech, and improving the design of digital infrastructure for organizations. I’m also interested in the contemporary edges of creative expression in technology and in my spare time I work on physical electronic art installations with my art collective, create paintings using neural networks, or ramble about the button layouts of microwaves at parties.
