Introduction
I began my career as a draftsman in 1972 after 4 years of drafting classes throughout high school. Several years later I became a machine designer when I worked for Daley Design, a well respected local company doing contract design work and eventually a special machine builder. After a number of years with Daley Design I moved on to a few local companies including Yates American Machine, Barber Colman Automated Mfg. Systems Division, Clinton Electronics, and Atwood Industries. In 1991 I started my own company Engineered Design Solutions after conceiving an idea for a new drinking straw and designing a special machine to produce the straw. I ultimately received an order to build the machine which allowed me to strike out on my own.
 
Here's a few quotes (of my own making) I hope you like and share:

We all walk along the escarpment. Some closer than others.

Oxymoronically, virtual reality is literally a real thing.
 
I, for one, am glad that the wheel has been re-invented. Multiple times.
 
Innovation: Seeing a sealed box then creating its contents.
 
Conquer space travel and time travel will take care of itself.
 
The key to time travel is live minute to minute and don't sweat the minutiae.
 
If it weren't for industrial art, art museums would still be caves.

Confusius say: He who overfills Zippo lighter make rash decision.
 
When mandated, innovation isn't.
 
I try to stay away from highfalutin words, but invariably fail.
 
Bragging rights
Inventor of the air guitar. In 1969 at a concert for local bands at Rock Valley College to Jimi Hendrix' Purple Haze. Before this event teenage boys did not know what to do with their hands at concerts that was socially acceptible.
