Hey, I'm me.   Dig physics, mostly the classical stuff that models the way the world works in a macro state.

I am helping the Energy From Thorium Foundation change the legislation to allow Thorium Breeders to be fully developed and stand a chance in the open market.  Follow me at @ThorFoundation on Twitter and on facebook Energy from Thorium.

I am working on a line of camera accessories.  Hopefully will be looking for investment soon.

I am working on a multi legged robot.  #Excited. #arduino.

I am a Account Support Consultant for Fleet Customers for NACCO Materials Handling Group and its a fun and challenging job so far.  Lots of SQL queries.  

I'm a Beta user of G+ and a love it,  hopefully I will be around much more than I have been.
