About Me

Ahoy! I am Tim Burbank, and my goal is to make things look awesome. I take a multi-faceted approach to digital media, including video, computer graphics, and web development, always looking for ways to push both my own abilities and the capabilities of the medium.

Recent Excitement

This Summer I'll be moving to Rhode Island to do live production work for Ocean Exploration Trust, which is all kinds of exciting. I miss it there.


I've been spending a lot of time recently learning to sysadmin better, and just launched code.timburbank.com to host some of my development projects.

I also moved goblin.timburbank.com to a new server setup where I can monitor it's resources more easily and everything is served over https.

I got my own MediaGoblin server up and running!

This summer I'm interning on Wires for Empathy, an animated short based on the Epic of Gilgamesh. It's a super cool project, and I'm really excited.
