limited production :: hand crafted :: high performance :: rechargeable :: premium flashlights

This is my blog about creating a startup LED flashlight business. I'm a designer, fabricator, and strategist and I'm passionate about making ideas real. I believe that products are about people, that they should be built to last, deliver real value, and that we need to do a better job than we have in the recent past.

Most of my career has been contract or freelance work and I've crafted products and strategies for both big international companies and startups. I also used to work in the "industry" fabricating special effects for film and TV, along with the occasional hot rod. Bottom line, I love making things.

I'm starting this blog so you can follow along, from day one, and see what it's like to start a business, or fail in the process. Only time will tell, but I hope you find this interesting enough to stay tuned, comment, link, like, tweet, and (most importantly) participate in turning this idea into something tangible and valuable.

Alpha pen on Kickstarter! ... only a few hours left!

Hey folks, it's down to the wire! I'm excited to say the project has broken 1000 backers! Act now and you can still sign up for a pen at a little over 50% of the future retail price. Also, my new machine arrived a couple days ago. Head on over to Kickstarter and check out my most recent update for more photos. Thanks for your support!

My first new machine tool! The next youngest in my stable was made in 1991.
