About 

I have been self employed for 25 years in no particular niche, designing trees houses to dog houses to multi-million dollar medical/dental facilities.  When i cannot describe or locate an element or detail that i want or envision, i often build it myself out of scrap lumber and recycled 'stuff'.  I live off-grid and could best be described as the non-conventional, atypical professional.  However, i love to learn and am always eager to see what the regular world is doing...
