About Me

Lived 12 years in Pittsburgh and the remaining in Palm Beach with random adventures across the US, Canada, Czech Republic, Germany, Iceland, Belgium, and other places.

Have two awesome kids, Madeline and Julian...and a cat named Termite.

My interests include research and development, history, science, medicine, gardening, traveling, and languages.
I was a machinist and computer programmer for the past 25 years.

I always wanted to be an artist, but that never worked out.  But it didn't keep me from trying.

I've published over 100,000 pages and been in numerous books, magazines, television shows, and films.

The last few years of life have been spent relaxing with friends...something I never made time for previously in life.

If I have one recurring theme in life, it is to pursue what inspires me.  Every dream I've had, I've accomplished. I think
the only thing that stops people from living their dreams most often is just a fear of trying.

Youtube movie:  Nikola Tesla System Of Lighting
A quick film of some lamps I created replicating the work of Nikola Tesla.
Unlike normal neon lamps, these bulbs contain no inert gases - they have only partial vacuums inside.
Some have two wires, others have one wire, and others are powered wirelessly.

Youtube movie:  Nikola Tesla System Of Wireless Lighting
I made these lamps to demonstrate wireless electricity.
The principle was introduced by Nikola Tesla in 1892 as a novel way of lighting lamps without wires.
I used a similar principle in the development of a new form of lamp contained in my first patent:

Some of my youngest inspirations were dissident artists of Prague.  Today I am fortunate to have spent time with many of them.
