I am a mechanical engineer, working on Nitinol stent frames for St. Jude Medical. I degisng heart valves that can be implanted through arteries in your leg! I'm a relative newbie to woodworking - just five years or so - but other hobbies include saltwater reef tanks, running, cycling, nordic skiing, camping with my wife, my dog, and cats. My first son was born August 2011, and chasing after him occupies most of my free time now.
