Welcome

Jacob Garbe

I'm a writer, web designer, and burgeoning new media artist currently getting my PhD in Narrative Artificial Intelligence at UC Santa Cruz with Noah Wardrip-Fruin and Michael Mateas.

I'm also currently looking for full-time contract work from mid-June to September. Send me a line (at jgarbe at ucsc dot edu) if you'd like to talk about that. You could check out my LinkedIn if you need a more enumerated description of my abilities.

My current projects are From Closed Rooms, Soft Whispers and Ice-Bound. You can find out more about things I have done / am doing / will do by clicking the menu links. You know the drill.
