What I Do

Analytical Chemistry

I work for Agilent Technologies , helping to design instruments for chemical analyses. That means that I do things like this:

  • Write software
  • Do math
  • Drill holes in metal
  • Play with lots of other fun things

Much of my work has focused on time-of-flight mass spectrometry. Here’s a fun demo illustrating the principals of TOFMS.

I’m the principal conductor of theĀ South Bay Philharmonic, which was once known as the Hewlett-Packard Symphony Orchestra.

I design and typeset the concert programs for Redwood Symphony and the South Bay Philharmonic. For many years I helped produce marketing materials for Redwood Symphony as well.

Once upon a time, I was the typographer for Inforum, an internal publication of Agilent Laboratories.

Here is an old piece I wrote on Typography for Scientific and Business Documents.
