About Me
I'm a writer, an artist, and an inventor.

I'm fascinated by language arts, visual arts, and innovative, functional design for objects needed for everyday living.

My idols are Charles Eames, Albert-Laszlo Barabasi, Richard Feynmann, and Michael Shermer; to mention a few of the more influential ones.

For TV fun, I enjoy South Park, Reno 911, Monk, and The Simpsons.

I've designed a number of geometric seamless tiles I like to use as backgrounds in my websites, multimedia productions, and for texture-mappings in my 3D creations.

My coolest invention is a folding geometric wreath lamp that is a form of origami (or technically, at least for now, kirigami.) I'll be introducing it to the world after I have it patented.

Favorite Word:

Intercommunication occurs on a seemingly infinite number of levels. Some of them humans are aware of, everything else happening behind the scenes, and in different dimensions, can only be speculated upon. Networks are systems that work regardless of the will of anybody or anything to try to control them. Consciousness of the connections everything makes with everything else is best attained by subduing the impressions we construe to describe our reality and by allowing bliss to prevail.

Least Favorite Word:

I like the word "nuclear." What I don't like is the mispronounced, "noo-kyoo-lar." I'm glad this popular variant has not made it into any dictionary (that I know of) yet. I hope it will fizzle out in the next administration. May I have two "least favorite words?" Et cetera I actually really like this word a lot, but, again, due to a popular mispronunciation, I cringe every time. If you think it's pronounced, "EK-cetera," PLEASE learn from this. Don't make me come over there.
