Multipotentialite -> (Design && Engineering == 'Art')

About Me

I work as the director of special projects for Royal Chrome, a design and engineering consortium. I am a published photographer, full-stack developer, and ACA-certified bicycle tour leader. I also like to play piano and sing loudly. And I'm restoring a 1966 Mustang in my spare time.
