I'm the founder and CEO of Inventables; makers of X-Carve, Carvey, and Easel. Our 3D carving machines and software that bring out the maker in all of us. Easel is the best free app for design and making with a 3D carver. Check out this recent appearance on the morning news and this video about our work in schools.

In addition to Inventables I'm a Founding Venture Partner at Corazon Capital and run ORDCamp with Brian Fitzpatrick. I sit on the board of the Fast Forward exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry and the Tinkering Lab at the Children's Museum in Chicago.

Before Inventables I was the founder of Lever Works. In December 2001 the company was bought by Leo Media.
