2010: Make it Happen

I have never made New Years Resolutions but i like the idea that sometimes all it takes for a fresh start is for a new year to begin. I need this idea because it gives me hope. It is comforting to think i can put aside a year of things that didn't quite pan out and can start anew.



So far January has been productive inspite of obstacles, but i have tried to see the positive or at least to not be discouraged (this has not come easily to me, and at times has felt like it is against the… Continue

Looks a lot like the Matrix...

Sure it does, but I really question the foresight of the Matrix developers when they created the iconic scrolling text. The best thing about my job is the ability to work on various cutting edge projects, whether for an entrepreneur or another research institution. Recently I was given the task of developing a virtual and physical model of the data you see… Continue

Here is an example of public work I fabricated. This is an memorial piece for the local Rotary International group of Sodus, NY. The memorial will have plaques of past Rotary members that have played and… Continue
