Random pictures from throughout the year of 2017.
Helsinki / Tallinn 2017
I went to Finland for a conference, and stayed an extra week visiting around Helsinki and Tallinn, which was a 2.5 hr boat ride away. Tallinn was amazing!

San Francisco 2015
I was in San Francisco for the GDC 2015 conference, but stayed the weekend after to visit my friend Ian and my family that lives in the area.
Chinese New Year 2015
Bellevue had an exhibition of Chinese culture for the new year (year of the goat). I went with Torsten and his wife Lisa. The highlight was getting a photo with Miss Chinese Seattle 2007-2009 in the green dress.
I visited the Boeing factory north of Seattle with Satyajit, Ansuman, and Janardhan. They don't let you take pictures inside the factory, but I got some pictures from the flight museum.
One of the great things about Texas is that the water is nice and warm in the summer. I had a nice time out on the lake with Jennifer and her family.
Thanksgiving in Oregon 2014
I took a trip to Hell's Canyon and The Painted Hills in Oregon with Satyajit, Ansuman, and Janardhan.
Boat Tour 2014
Satyajit, Ansuman, Janardhan, and I went on a boat tour around the bay.
Pictures from traveling in the month of August. I took two pictures out my window in Vancouver for the SIGGRAPH conference. Sadly, I took no other pictures from there. I also took some photos in Santa Monica at the beach.
I visited two conferences in France, back-to-back. Curves and surfaces was in Paris, and EGSR was in Lyon. The weather, location, and people were all top-notch.
Here are some photos from my trip to Zurich in the spring of 2014. I took photos while wandering around the city, and there are some beautiful areas to be seen.
Pictures from SIGGRAPH 2013 located in sunny Anaheim, California. This was the first SIGGRAPH that I published a paper in, although I had attended previous conferences as a spectator. The experience was a lot of fun.
Here are some pictures from during my internship at Microsoft Research in the summer of 2013. I wasn't too good about taking pictures while I was there, but the Seattle/Redmond area is beautiful during the summer.
Eurographics Symposium on Rendering 2012 was held in Paris, France. In addition to presenting "Parameterization-Aware MIP-Mapping," I had a fun time walking around the city and checking out the sights.
These photos were taken in Cagliari, Italy. I presented the paper, "Hierarchical Deformation of Locally Rigid Meshes" at the conference.
These photos were taken during my visit to India in 2012. During my stay I visited Mumbai and Goa, but most of the pictures I took are from Goa.
Spring in Texas with blue bonnets and indian paintbrushes. Texas is often brown and ugly, but, once per year, wildflowers add some color to the landscape.
Solid and Physical Modeling 2011
I took these photos during my visit to the SIAM GD/SPM conference in Orlando, Florida. I presented the paper "Positive Gordon-Wixom Coordinates." I also took lots of pictures of ducks!
These photos were taken in Llandudno, Wales. I presented the paper, "Wavelet Rasterization" at the conference. I did not carry the camera with me all that often, but did take several pictures when I hiked up a nearby hill.
These pictures were taken during SGP 2010 in Lyon, France. It was slightly difficult to get around France, because I only speak English, but the scenery is beautiful. Lyon gives a feeling of age and solidity that does not exist in any American city. I really liked some of the winding streets. The place feels like a maze of masonry.
Eurographics 2010 was held in Norkoeping, Sweden. The conference was held in the middle of the summer, so Sweden was actually very pleasant in terms of weather. The city we stayed at had a cool combination of tall buildings, narrow streets, and flowing water.
These pictures were taken during SGP 2008 in Copenhagen, Denmark. This was during the summer before I started graduate school. Despite being an undergraduate, I had the fortune of presenting a paper at an international conference and meeting some wonderful friends.
