Metal Artist AKA Broad with a Blow Torch !!!

After years of "workin' for the man" managing Lenscrafters with a crew of 20 + people and training others in optics and sales... I said " BITE ME"
After moving to Northern Wisconsin " Back to Nature"... I became the artist that I always knew lived in my heart....and being self employed .. you can't get fired !!
I now hold the Patent on the "Copper Cattail Wind Chimes" tm found on the web. I work in copper and bronze and attend many Art shows across the US..
( Guess I'am still just a Dead Head on the Road ) and enjoy my life more than ever.
From the many shows and many friends that have come into my life.. I am truley Grateful!
Check out my art work if you like on the web ... and don't forget to practice random acts of kindness !

I got a Job!

I got a job trading hits for pieces.
We made wrinkles, advertized them as creases
Not subject to recession!

"The pay was pathetic.
It's a shame those boys couldn't be more copascetic!"

A Deadhead from way back

A Deadhead from way back when who is still trying to make a difference. I am a scientist doing environmental toxicology studies, and I run a foundation that is looking to support solar energy research. A shrine to the Dead is in my office, inclusive of a stuffedv Jerry doll. It centers me and helps me think thorough the complexities of what I do. I have had about 150 students work with me im my laboratory over the years, and they all know my passion for music and life. Best products of my life are those students and the careers they will follow.

As always, Mutant

Environmental Regulatory Scientist

Hey now I spent 20 years inspecting, regulating, building, remediating and trying to make a buck with landfills. i'VE composted sludge, run a recycling collection and processing center and a household hazardous waste facility. Trash was my life! Lately - the last five, I've been serious about the Gore kool-aid on the front line of regulatory policy development in the climate change war. What's your footprint?
