As a practitioner and professor of industrial design I created the industrial design of the first
commercial 3D printer employing the method of fused deposition invented by Stratasys and now
used by RepRap and MakerBot.

 stratasys … I also created the “front end” for the
Cray T3D supercomputer
T3D-144dpi  …and imagined a “mower of
the future” for Toro in 1990, with David Barrette.

I created the “Designer Series” of panels for Rosemount Office Systems

rosemount3 … and developed the systems logic for Ethospace by
Herman Miller, while Research Manager and Senior
Designer for design icon Bill Stumpf
Ethosfinal_72dpi … and the occasional design for myself.

I co-founded the interactive design firm ICONOS, garnering dozens of national and international awards
for STEM learning in the “What’s the Secret?” CD-ROM series

WTS3_MainMenu … and with Steve Campbell developed the first scheme
for dynamic digital tattoos for displaying emotional states
Tattoo_display_facial_72dpi … using fuzzy logic chips and digital ink, as featured in Popular Science.

I currently teach a graduate studio course on interface and app design and a theory course on digital futures at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis.
