Carpe Diem

“Seize the Day” is at the heart of everything on this site — even the inspiration to create it came from that credo. I had no idea that anyone manufactured metallic tops of exquisite quality — and this product is perfect for illustrating the importance of precision.

Essential to this site is the idea of leveraging knowledge. Every element is connected to a conviction that boils down to Saint Jerome’s journey: “Good, better, best. Never let it rest. ‘Til your good is better and your better is best.” I have spent my life in pursuit of the seemingly impossible — which is rooted in a passion for problem solving that dates back to high school woodworking.

Defying the odds, I designed and built a rocking chair, dining room table and six chairs, and a 5-piece bedroom set. Dovetailing conventional woodworking with my CAD/CAM technology foundation from Purdue University, I also invented and patented a CD storage wheel.

Wisdom Begins In Wonder takes you through a visual journey of my idea-driven existence in a lifelong commitment to quality craftsmanship.

The collection of links on the IT front share the same theme.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my site.
