I've have the funny notion that I haven't accomplished anything unless I can point
to a physical object at the end of the day and say
"I made that!" Strangely, I don't expect
this of other people.
Random Things I've Made
My interests are fairly diverse. In addition to studying Shotokan karate, in the past year I have taught myself
how to pick locks using picks I made from street sweeper bristles. I designed an improved finger nail trimmer
for people with limited use of their hands. I'm a founding member of The Mothra Invention Club; we made a huge
human powered water wheel.
The Chainsaws of Babylon
I was blessed to play guitar in a band called The Chainsaws of Babylon.
The BigHeavyWorld.com Vermont Band Guide classifies us as Pre-Grunge Rock Pop. I guess that's as
good as any three words and a prefix can get in describing our music.
I worked for about two years as a sign-maker. I gained experience with a wide range of tools, techniques, and
material types. Among my skills: woodworking, MIG welding, painting, computer layout and design.
