My Bio These resources are intended to share ideas that take wooden track to a hobbyist level. Great for kids, this non-scale railway allows limitless creativity in the medium of wood, glue, metal, fabric, textures and paper. I would even dare to suggest it brings with it charm and a bit of whimsy too...

I graduated from Texas A&M University and currently design commercial aircraft. Through work, I had the opportunity to live in Bristol, England and Nagoya, Japan. Travel is also an interest - some of my favorite places include Montserrat, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Wales, Hungary, and Estonia.

Other interests include trains (http://www.wTrak.org), graphic design, CAD, knowledge-based engineering, photography, sound reinforcement, recording, writing, online radio (http://www.live365.com/stations/acmjournal), and great food (http://www.letstalkcooking.org).
