Artistic and Professional Performances and Exhibits


  • Created what may have been the first illusions gallery on the world wide web. I have maintained and expanded it over the years. The site received between 600 million and 1.3 billion hits a year for at least twelve years. I hosted what has come to be known as an electronic teaching portfolio since the days of gopher use, before web browsers. The portfolio grows and is weeded every semester, in response to student needs and dating of material.
