I design for 3D printing in steel and laser etching in glass. In metal I'm a sculptor using hand and algorithmic techniques, most recently in collaboration with a large generative engine which I'm writing in Rhinoceros/Grasshopper/Python. In glass I work as a scientific illustrator rendering observed and modeled 3D data, both on commission and as a lifelong fan of all science.
