Many industries have intrigued me over the years. As a kid in Utah and Idaho, I worked summers building homes with traditional and nontraditional materials. When I moved to Philadelphia, I developed an interest in architecture, specifically alternative construction and high efficiency design. I worked as an independent contractor for a number of years before working for the aircraft industry as a facilities manager. When I was laid off in 2011, I decided to pursue a number of inventions I have designed in the past and also develop a business to help others do the same. My current focus is computer aided design and improving open source culture.   BOB
