I'm a working stiff who can't learn enough of the world around. I spend a lot of my time wondering how things work and then figuring out how I can make it work better. I'm a kinetic artist wanna-be without the artistic ability. I am in awe at the abilities of such artists as Theo Jansen, David C. Roy and Reuben Margolin. I was a machinist by trade but chose to seek another career path as I love machining and wouldn't want to lose that love. I built my own cnc machine to cut gears and workings for my one day kinetic sculptures and have spent many a night long into the morning hours figuring out how to make a cnc from wood and have it cut cleanly and accurately. I hope to add many more projects to this site in the coming months and look forward to all the comments and constructive criticism.
