Howdy, I run the Systems Group and co-lead the Crew here at CCS. Here's some of us at work.

The Systems Group and the Crew were originally constructed by Rémy Evard. See here for info on his latest incarnation.

While at CCS I have traveled to conferences and workshops on behalf of the College. Here are some of my trip reports and presentations.

If I had spare time, some of it would no doubt get spent on:


Transcendental Etude by Adrienne Rich

No one ever told us we had to study our lives,

Make of our lives a study, as if learning natural history or music,

That we should begin with the simple exercises first and slowly go on trying the hard ones,

Practicing till strength and accuracy become one with the daring to leap into transcendence.

And in fact we can't live like that: we take on everything at once before we've even begun to read or mark time, we're forced to begin in the midst of the hardest movement,

The one already sounding as we are born.
