I work as a physicist/engineer for a semiconductor company making acoustic signal processing microchips. I have been married to my wife for about 10 years and we have three little kids. I have been woodworking since I was 8, but had a break for several years while in school.
My preferred projects are guitars and anything guitar related, though I also dig furniture and jewelry boxes.
