I attended Clemson University and received a B.S. in Graphic Communications, which I’ll crudely summarize as the science of all things visual, with a heavy lean towards the print industry. My particular emphasis was color science. During my stay at the university, I wrote software that would later be employed in a commercial, production setting. Several of my other projects, such as the Color Error Threshold Calculator are still used for teaching theory today.
Earlier in my college career, I also spent time at the Clemson Geographic Information Science lab as an embedded software developer. I assisted with the assembly, configuration, and development of our very small Linux gateway machines for field deployments. Our particular area of emphasis was wireless mesh networks, used to measure water quality over time.
I completed two internships: One at International Paper (the largest paper and pulp provider in the world), and GTECH Printing, a large international lottery ticket printer. The former was a mixture of software development and pre-press, while the latter was entirely software development.
