NVidia engineer Serves Up Holiday Lights in Gangnam Style
Clark Griswold, the bumbling patriarch of the Griswold clan portrayed in the 1989 classic “Christmas Vacation,” has nothing on Storms. The Nvidia compiler verification engineer is everything Griswold is not: meticulous, energy-efficient, safety-conscious, and considerate of the neighbors. While Griswold infamously put up 25,000 energy-sucking incandescent lights, practically blinding the couple next door, Storms is more careful.
Rather than clambering about perilously on his roof, Storms hired a crew of pros to help put up any lights more than 15 feet from the ground. He used software from Light-O-Rama to choreograph his displays. Storms even operate a small FM transmitter so people driving by his home can listen to the music that accompanies the light show.
