President of his own
company, developing automated fabricators - devices that
generate three-dimensional solid objects under computer control.
"Starting my own
company in automated fabrication was not what I started to do.
You know, I'm not exactly sure when I crossed the line, that I
was no longer looking for a job."
"The advantage of
working for yourself is independence, freedom to explore your
fabrication is a field of technologies that generate three dimensional
solid objects under computer control. Now, in automated fabrication, in
this industry we make machines call fabricators. Now a fabricator is like
a computer printer except, instead of printing on flat sheet of paper, it
prints in solid material. So you get objects that come out of your
fabricator, instead of a picture that you get from a printer, you get a
my own company in automated fabrication was not what I started to do. You
know, I'm not exactly sure when I crossed the line, that I was no longer
looking for a job. Even after I hung out a shingle and put out the name
Ennex Fabrication Technology, I was still essentially looking for a job
and available for a job if the right company with the right people had
said, "We like your approach to this industry, we'd like you come and be
part of our team," I would have closed down Automated Fabrication and gone
to work with the company. But that didn't happen, so I just kept going
with Ennex Fabrication."
"The advantage of working for yourself is independence, freedom to explore
your own direction. Yes, some people think that freedom and what's
wonderful about freedom is like lying back on a lounge chair. Or maybe
freedom is about relaxing. And to me freedom isn't about relaxing at all,
to me freedom is about exploring. You know, what's the opposite of
freedom? If freedom is relaxing, then the opposite of freedom is working.
And I'm an explorer. I'm an adventurer."
