In my alter ego, I'm a technical artist/Art director type creating virtual environments for real-time simulation research.

Down time activities include reading, sketching, fixing up the house, gardening (ok, that's an obsession), and lately, wood related stuff like jazzing up my table saw to make things. What things? Well, I need some doors, and since my first one was left in my old house when it sold, I guess it's time to make more. Boxes could be cool. My study needs things like a bookcase, cabinets and a desk.. so yeah, it's shaping up to be a busy year :)

Oh, and did I mention this great website..?!
