I am a mechanical engineer, working on Nitinol stent frames for St. Jude Medical. I design 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 , my dog and cats, saltwater reef tanks, running, cycling, nordic skiing, camping with my family.
