About the author

Past: Tolerated the U.S. educational system as far as a Bachelors degree. Favorite sports were skateboarding, windsurfing and pole vaulting. Worked on many jobs and projects, giving me a wide variety of skills and experiences.

Present: People call me a renaissance man. I still enjoy variety and being productive. Probably why artwork is one of my lasting activities. Snowboarding and hiking are my favorite ways to recreate with my amazing wife and sons.



  1. I hadn’t looked at your blog for several days. Today I started reading about the snowman. I actually got up and went to look at ours to see if he had a nose. Evidently he never told a lie, because the nose was there and not unduly long. The tree has to be one of my all time favorites. Our jingle bells are over the kitchen counter. It was fun to see the original ornament globe. We must have lost the tree years ago. Ours is very plain compared to your original, but we love it. The heat from the candles makes it move a little bit. After looking at the video clips, I decided we should have springs between the ornament and the hanger for the snow boarder and Santa. They act very staid in our house. From the computer ball, I just blew on Santa. He moved and looked like he was waving hello to you. I’ve enjoyed your gift blogs and am so grateful you included us with all those gifts through the years. Thank you many times over.

    1. Thanks for all your support over the years! This blogging thing is very good for making up for the weak spots in my life. Things like communication, documentation, memory, reading and writing, spelling, the list goes on and on! Hopefully improving on these areas will not take time away from producing work but, will inspire and broaden what I do and who sees it.
