I make things in order to learn about craft and technology. My work over time has been sort of an intersection of craftsmanship, fabrication, technology and determination. I am happiest when I’m in the shop building my creations and I love helping other makers with their projects by writing tutorials and finding solutions to their build challenges.

After working in the bicycle industry for 12 years (mostly in design/R&D) I became a professional jeweler- mostly because I get to play with fire and dangerous chemicals and beat metal with a hammer. I make movie props, animatronics and costumes for fun. Most of my projects have complete build tutorials on Instructables and Hackaday and have been featured by Sparkfun, Adafruit and Hackaday.
