Hey! My name is James Vaughan and I live in California and study computer science at UCLA. I’m usually out slacklining and climbing, but sometimes I take pictures, go to class, and write code, and I’m always listening to music.

If you don’t believe me or you just want to learn more, you can see some photos and read about my slacklining adventures on instagram, check out my scrobbling history on last.fm, look at my profile on linkedin, take a peek at some of my personal projects on github, or follow me on twitter.

I’ve been spending most of my time lately playing with Linux, learning new programming languages, and building websites. The thing that excites me the most about computers is the potential for improved educational materials making use of digital interactive visualizations and explanations that give people greater understanding and intuition about the world around them.
