I am a former artificial intelligence philosopher. As much as academia is for me a PhD was not. These days I am using my past experience in poetry and AI writing to create concrete poetry.

I previously put out a chapbook of dot-to-dot versions of Richard Brautigan poems, available on the website:

there was a submission call I was thinking about so I busted out the different "connect the dots" algos I have, playing around, getting ideas.
