All my life I have had a strong desire to create and make things. As a child I satisfied my creativity by building model airplanes from balsa wood, glue and tissue paper. In adolescence I constructed my own desk which I still use today and also the florescent desk lamp that goes with it. I was always making something. I dabbled in photography, metal working and wood working. I loved making old machinery work again. My adult career consisted of designing and constructing scientific instruments. Initially I worked for the Dominion Observatory, Canada where I developed instrumentation for gravity measurements. Later I moved to Austin Tx where I am co-owner and Vice President of ZLS Corp which manufactures gravity meters. As my formal career comes to an end, the urge to make and create things continues unabated.
