Ahoy! In case you’ve stumbled in here, lost and confused, my name’s Nathaniel Caauwe and this is some stuff I’m not embarrassed to show. My creative endeavors have gone from music (violin for eight years, still play a little now) to traditional art, digital art, photography, filmmaking, visual effects, and now web design and development, with aims to develop a few nifty mobile apps I think people will like. Most people know me as a visual effects artist, and although I no doubt still enjoy doing such things, it is no longer my day job.

For the past year, I’ve worked as a web designer at a printing/marketing/web hosting/design firm that caters largely to photographers nationwide. I’ve quite enjoyed it, and get to spend downtime sharpening my coding skills. I’ve become quite dangerous with HTML & CSS. I can also do some decent damage with jQuery and PHP. Python is definitely my favorite, but I don’t have any practical daily use for it, so I’m not forced to learn it as fast as other languages.

Anywho, feel free to poke around. I’ve consolidated some of my accounts (like tumblr and deviantArt)  so most of it lives in one place. My photography is still at SmugMug though; it looks nice enough over there and prints are for sale. Just sayin’…
