He is the creator of Levitated.net. Born in 1973 to William and Suzon Davis Tarbell in the high altitude desert city of Albuquerque, New Mexico, he was first introduced to personal computers in 1987. Jared’s love of computation has grown in direct relation to the processing power of these machines.

Jared holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from New Mexico State University. He is most interested in the visualization of numerical processes and the life-like properties of complex, computational systems.

In June of 2005, Jared co-founded Etsy.com, an online marketplace to buy and sell handmade goods.

Jared is an advocate of open source philosophies, and as such, freely distributes his work in modifiable form at both Levitated.net and Complexification.net.
