Skills, Knowledge, Interests

  • I'm a civil/environmental engineer and materials scientist by degree. Most of the things I work with are too big to hack at home. But do let me know if you need some specialized concrete. Or math help. Or CAD help.
  • I enjoy a number of crafts, but I'm usually more interested in the product than the process. I've done mosaic art, basic crochet, some marginal watercolor, and a whole lot of scrapbooking. I can usually draw straight lines.
  • I love modern architecture, especially when it's green. [2] I'm intrigued by repurposed and recycled projects.
  • I took a typography course in college and am fascinated by the beauty and history of letterpress printing. I want to rescue and restore an old press.
  • I know basic HTML & CSS. I fell off the web development wagon circa 2002, but I know enough to install Wordpress.
  • I sing alto in a concert choir and adore choral music.
  • I'm fluent in LOLcat.

Want to Learn

  • Knitting
  • Basic woodworking
  • I am currently learning to program, starting in Python. Advice, resources, and project suggestions are welcomed.
  • I'm dying to learn enough music theory to arrange music for SATB voicing.
  • Learning to play piano or guitar would be nice, too. I've ruled out instruments I can't sing with.


  • Kitchen stuff (stove, oven, sink) so we can do craaaazy molecular gastronomy [3] classes.
  • Getting the podcast studio up and running so I can use it for multitracking [4]
  • I'm browsing the Briar Press [5] classifieds for an appropriate press & accessories to set up a letterpress studio.
