About Me

After a twenty year career in Medical Device Engineering, I have turned my attention to my true vocation: writing. 

With a passion for  innovation and science, I have brought insight, humor, intensive research and a personal touch to all of my published works.

My myriad of interests run from the technical (statistics) to the creative (drawing and cartooning) with avid rooting interests in football, tennis and basketball for good measure.

Content I Write

Ideas and Pitches I Wrote

The Art and Science of Dental Implant Manufacturing

After spending fourteen months working to relocate the machining operations of a leading dental implant manufacturer, I learned that the products I once considered simple hardware were much more than that. The blog post would cover several aspects of the dental implant manufacturing process, including the history of the Swiss screw turning process itself. The over-arching theme would emphasize the inherent value and craftsmanship that goes into each and every implant.

Rebuilding a President

As a history buff, I recently found myself reading about the dental misadventures of our first President. I thought this topic would make a great centerpiece for a blog post or series on the history of dental implants. The post (or series) would discuss the history of dental implants, Washington's dental issues and how they were dealt with in the day, followed by a study of what modern technology could have done for "His Excellency".
