Since Middle School, I've been interested in building things, the MAKER movement and vocational education. For over 15 years, I've taken night classes to continuously learn new trades. Here I am at a vocational training center in Arlington, Virginia

I designed and built an aluminum teardrop Camper. In this photo, I'm presenting at MakerFaire. The build process is available here. It won second place in an Autodesk Instructables Contest

On this project I used open-source GIS data and CAD software to transform topology and elevation data into G-code. I used a laser cutter to cut out shapes from poster board for each land or sea elevation level. Finally, I manually layered them to create maps.

As many of my friends know, I create personalized greeting cards. I usually make about two dozen different ones a year. Are a couple recent random ones.

I machine some of my own tools. Here is a speed square I milled. It is accurate to 0.5/10,000th of an inch or 1/6th the diameter of a human hair.
