Interests

  • Since 2006 I have served as an advisory board member for a local industrial design think tank.
  • I'm a fanatic of innovative, smart design and creative solutions to problems.
  • I'm an amateur woodworker. I love getting my hands dirty and learning new skills. When I decided I wanted to learn to Sea Kayak I built my own 17 foot wooden kayak.
  • I enjoy any type of cycling. I'm rarely content with off-the-shelf solutions so I've conceptualized and scratch built bicycles & wheels, component by component, from the frame up.
  • I love travel. In addition to extensive US travel I've been to Thailand, Chile, England, France, Germany, Easter Island, Korea... more every year.
  • Finding new and creative ways of being a dad to my son and daughter.
  • I'm restoring a 50 year old antique truck.
  • I love building, being a "Maker" and home renovation.
