About the Artist

Dave is currently a Certified Principle Engineer supporting optical hardware for flight and space applications. He has over 30 years experience in the field which has spanned lasers, biomedical devices, injection molded lenses and astronomical telescopes.  His years spent working at Spectra-Physics gave him an appreciation for dielectric coated mirrors which he now incorporates into his sculptures.  Training as a mechanical engineer has given him a passion for machining which he has developed by building a small home shop.  The combination of coated optics, metal working skills and a love of mobiles has fueled his artistic endeavors to create robust and beautiful kinetic works that are truly unique.  All of his pieces are custom crafted at his shop.  No outside production is employed.
