As if I'm not busy enough with the professional model making business, keeping updated and learning the latest technology like CAD/CAM software, laser cutting and engraving, 3D printing, converting my mill and lathe to CNC, learning additional technology to enhance the models, miniatures, shadowboxes and dioramas, such as, Projection Mapping, Computer Generated Imagery, Virtual and Augmented Reality, video, audio and motion, controlled by microprocessors like the Arduino and Raspberry Pi, constantly adding content to my website, all the social media, now I need to have a Blog for SEO, blah, blah, blah.

I built my first model when I was 6 years old. Unbeknownst to me, the kit box had been opened and the instruction sheet and decals were missing. It didn't matter. I had to have a model of the jet that flew over my house as it approached for landing at the Naval Air Station. I built it and painted the markings using the raised decal locator lines. It was messy, but it was mine. And I have had a passion for model making and thinking "Outside the box" ever since.

I was influenced by the film, Star Wars. I liked movies and I liked model building. I had to find a way to combine both into a career. I worked my way through college as a self-employed professional model maker, building architectural and engineering models.
