    Professionally, I'm a medical illustrator and do 3D animation.

    When I'm not taking care of my CPs and other plants...

    I love to cook and bake. I grew up on the west coast and could never get decent Sourdough bread when I was in grad school in Dallas, or, on the east coast after I moved to Connecticut. So, I got a "San Francisco" sourough culture and bake my own. It took a while to perfect. It also makes a killer pizza dough. Nothing like a hot baked pizza with garlic, tomatoes, eggplant, and basil fresh from our garden.

    I spend time with our dog and sometimes go hiking or rollerblading with her. I'll soon be spending a lot more time doing that as we are planning to get a 2 year old rescued Pharoah Hound.

    I also play and practice bluegrass banjo. I played guitar as a kid and still have my Takamine 12 string I bought in Jr High - but I just love the sound of the ol' 5-string so that's what I'm focusing on. When I lived in Dallas I had 5 lessons with the 1985 national banjo champion. About 2 years ago I found those old cassette tapes my teacher made of the lessons so I took the banjo out of the closet, polished it up, put on new strings, built my own bridge for it and started up again. I picked up a used mandolin this summer and I'm learning that too. It's fabulous since it's small, sounds beautiful and it can be played quietly - like when my wife is asleep. The banjo is so loud it would wake the whole neighborhood.

    I found out at the NECPS show dinner on Saturday that Rich Sivertsen plays a Martin guitar. We may just have to get a jam session going next year at the show and have a little live entertainment going on in the greenhouse...

    LOL! I work 7 days a week. Alas, CP's is all I can do. My childhood hobby was tropical fish.

    I like to sculpt though I have not had time/inspiration in the past couple years. Recently I bought new clay and have been trying to get back into it. Guess I'd have to get offa the computer to actually do new stuff!

    Here's some old stuff shot with a camera even worse than the one I have now:


    WB: Michigan J Frog (super sculpey)


    Dragonlance: Dragon Highlord (super sculpey)


    Cannibal Corpse (band) zombie statuette (super sculpey)



    Warhammer old world: Beastman (super sculpey)


    Necromantia: Vampire lord (super sculpey)


    I also like to draw in an 80s skateboard style. I setup a shop at boardpusher to do skateboard decks but haven't released any designs yet, here are two potential/WIP deck sketches though:
