A New Chapter…

After 30 years working in Research & Development at the DuPont Co., I have elected to accept the generous “early-retirement” package currently being offered by the company.

I am honored, grateful, and humbled to have known and worked with so many talented, caring, intelligent, entertaining, helpful, and neurotic people over the years, and I wish all of my former colleagues at DuPont the very best in the years ahead.

I look forward to pursuing my artistic passion through woodturning, expanding my skills and techniques in the craft, and sharing my work (and other woodturning news and events) here on this blog, on Instagram, Twitter, Flickr, and Facebook.
