Hi! I’m Truman. Welcome to BrownGrafix!

Whether deliberately or by divine accident, you’ve stumbled upon my personal website (or as my WordPress tagline quips: “A Virtual Vitrine of Truman’s Stuff“). Some of this stuff is good, and some of this stuff is not-so-good, but for better or worse it is all my stuff and I enjoy showing it off. I hope you enjoy looking at it.

Stuff about me:

  • I’ve been a personal-computing hobbyist for about the past 30 years, concentrating primarily in the area of computer graphics.
  • In my day job, I am a systems analyst (AKA “computer guy”) who supports about 150 people trapped in beige cubicles someplace in the heart of Los Angeles.  I provide them with skilled, magical relief from their daily high-tech headaches.
  • I am a former U.S. Marine, a compulsive junk collector, an avid gardener and extreme vermi-composting fanatic.
  • My first personal computer was a Timex Sinclair TS1000.  I spent a wonderful two years learning how to program in Z80 Assembly Language on that $100 miracle machine that my mom was kind enough to buy for me.
  • My favorite coffee mug is over 30 years old.  So is my favorite t-shirt.
  • In addition to Management Information Systems, I have a degree in Photo-Offset Lithography.
  • While I’m not much of a writer, I have one obscure literary claim-to-fame: I contributed a chapter to the 1994 SAMS best-seller “PC Graphics Unleashed“. I’m proud to say that my chapter was a page-turner!

Thanks for dropping by and checking out my stuff.

I really appreciate it. If you like what you see and feel so inclined, please subscribe to me on YouTube.

  1. Hello, dear Truman! Please confess, is that you who created this fractal ouroborotic universe of ours a.k.a. the Truman Show? 🙂 If so, may I kindly and directly greet you at last :)) Well, seems like we are all parts of the Fractal, ever so playing oblivious and detached..)

    Having watched a lot of mandelbulber et al. videos on the web, and being a 3D artist myself, I’d like to thank you for creating something that really stands out, your taste in shapes, shading, color and sound (yes, a vital part!) is just top notch! There’s also a cinematographic touch to your works, which is something quite unique for the genre! I dig your camera movement and parameter spinning in accord with music 🙂

    I’ve followed the link to your website, read about you and I’m happy to find out that you’re truly a multifaceted gem of a man. Feels like an allied soul! May the inexhaustible inspiration unfold fractally in your heart and mysteries of the universe truly falsely divided unravel in your mind likewise. And may you always have the power to control the fractal flow at your will, for there are moments to be contemplated in stillness and moments to be fast forwarded.

    A lot of words due to inability to express silence.
    Warm regards and much love from Russia!

    • Wow, thank you Captain! I haven’t checked my comments on the site for a while, so finding yours was a wonderful treat. Best regards, Truman
