Welcome! I am an engineer, programmer, designer, and gentleman. You may be interested in some of my electrical and mechanical projects. Take everything you read here with a grain of salt and remember to wear your safety glasses.

Github and Grabcad

Although I'm not very active on either platform, I have accounts on both Github, for some of my more public software efforts (mostly web development experiments), and on Grabcad, for some parts I've modeled in CAD that are both non-proprietary and potentially useful to other engineers. These models are mostly commercially available products that I have to work with or design something around, and Grabcad has a more appropriate audience for that than, say, Thingiverse. Naturally Grabcad also gets bonus points for having been an Estonian startup!

So if you'd like to be fully aware of my activities on the Internet, now split over at least ten platforms including this blog, visit both sites and follow me there too. Thanks!

Musical Swings v2, at the FAT Village Projects

An indoor demonstration version of the musical swings will be up for a month at Fort Lauderdale's FAT Village Projects, a gallery and event space in the FAT Village arts district. I previously gave a talk about this project at the same venue as part of their Art + Tech Incubator Lecture and Workshop Series and they were kind enough to host what I'm calling version 2 of the installation as an exhibit.

The complete installation.

An Update to My Résumé

I've updated my résumé to include some recent experience—my activities supporting the North Boynton Hacklab—and new skills I've acquired. This update is also an opportunity to better represent the fact that my employer CBM of America, Inc. shares me with TRA, Inc., which has no R&D team of its own; for the last ten years I've been developing products for telecommunications companies, under CBM, and for hospitals, under TRA.

Markers at the Beach

Here are some old marker and pen sketches from the summer of 2011, when I was practicing at Deerfield Beach in Florida.

My Current Business Card

For my freelance design and engineering work I've been using this business card, with contact information on the front and a list of services I offer on the back. The font is Gotham Rounded, which I've also been using for some CNC-routed signmaking recently as the inner radii of the letters in this font are ideal for that purpose.

These were printed by the UK firm Moo on 16 pt paper with a matte finish and rounded corners. Dimensions of 85 x 55 mm (Moo now calls this the “Moo size”) are standard in the UK and some of Europe.
