I'm a professional software engineer working on products that are used to run school districts (teachers enter attendance and grades, transcripts are printed, stats are reported to the state so schools get the proper funding, etc.)
I'm also a polymer clay artist and avid haiku writer. http://www.ferociousmellow.com
I recently created http://www.Levitada.com where artists and makers can swap materials and/or give away finished items (to individuals or charities.
I have a million plans for the Glowforge, mostly centered around art projects, but also as a tool for creating useful items around the house and for the boat.
