I help architect and develop code for Micah Walter Studio so people can explore and have fun with museum collections. I've taught and learned at School for Poetic Computation, Parsons, and ITP.

Dan Catt

Engineer

I've always had an interest in making computers do things for me, be that generating art, generating music and even generating stories & poetry on my behalf. Even if sometimes making the computer do those things turns out taking longer that it’d take doing them myself. I also like cats, although getting them to do anything is even harder, especially poetry.

I like staying current on emerging technologies like AR, and blockchain. In past careers, I’ve co-founded a media startup, and I’ve worked in various design fields like architecture and industrial design. In all of my work, I aim to build technology with a human focus.
