Who We Are
Founder & President
Bunny's interest in science and math started at an early age. She won first place in he 8th grade science fair for her demonstration of Newton's three laws of physics. She studied particle physics in 9th grade and took extra science classes in high school, including physical chemistry. After several interesting detours in life, she ended up with a Special Individual Ph.D. in Cognitive Science and Music. Her doctoral work focused on developing computer models of music cognition and neural networks for pitch perception. She was a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Washington where she taught Music Cognition and Psychology of Music. After another detour in life, she ended up working at Apple, mostly as a technical writer teaching developers how to use Apple's application programming interfaces. She authored thousands of pages of documentation on a variety of topics including, 2D graphics, QuickTime VR, text processing, web apps, low-level matrix operations, OpenGL, Core Image, and Quartz Composer. She wrote one of the first sample apps for iPhone to show developers how to respond to touch events. Her book Programming With Quartz (authored with David Gelphman) is considered a classic for graphics programmers. She is also an amateur astronomer who obtained a Messier certificate and learned to grind a telescope mirror. She is currently trying to tackle the Uillean pipes.
Glen is a child of the Space Age, growing up watching the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo missions. One of the defining moments of his life was watching 2001: A Space Odyssey in the Cinerama Theater in 1968 and calculating how old he would be by then. He thought, “I am going to be an old man, maybe even dead!” Glen got his first telescope, a Sears 60mm refractor when he was 9 years old and spent many hours out under the stars with it. That led him to Whitman College where he majored in Math and Physics with a minor in Astronomy. He spent many nights of his college years in the wheat fields of Walla Walla gazing at the cosmos through Whitman’s 20-inch telescope. After college he worked in the aerospace industry, first in electrical and lighting systems, and for many years designing and programming automated test systems. He was then able to get his own 12 inch reflector telescope. In 1996 he made a hand cranked star tracker utilizing a barn door hinge to photograph comet Comet Hyakutake that was published in the book Comet of the Century: From Halley to Hale-Bopp by Fred Schaaf. Later he worked on satellite control software for a pioneering satellite phone company. An avid fan of classical music, he spends most of his time restoring crackly old audio recordings of famous performers. He also serves on the board of Opera San Jose. Glen is still waiting for his jet pack and wishes Siri was a little more conversational.
