For 40 years, I was an engineering professor at Purdue University, the Ohio State University, and Colorado State University-Pueblo. I am now retired.

I convene a group called Pueblo Makes, which supports makers of all kinds in Pueblo. I am a member of Pueblo’s Energy Future, the Board of the Southern Colorado Economic Development District, the Board of the Renewable Energy Owners Coalition of America, and the 2030 Commission of Pueblo County. I am a member of the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

In May 2023, my two business partners and I opened The Ethos, at 615 East Mesa Avenue, Pueblo, CO. We offer makerspaces, a sober bar, community hall, and commercial kitchen. I am documenting the history of the building, which was built in 1920 and housed Anzick’s Steak House, Strilich’s Lounge, and the Grand Prix. We think we are the fifth owners of the building.

I have lived in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Scotland, California, Washington, Indiana, Ohio, and Colorado. Pueblo is now my home. I live with my partner on 53 acres, 10 miles down a dirt road. I can change the tire on my Nissan Pathfinder.

I have traveled to England, France, the Netherlands, Finland, the USSR, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, Japan, and Vietnam.

I sew.
