Shark Tank Approved

 

Ann GMA Board

Producer Taylor Dunn invited me to ABC studios  to give a short one-minute pitch about my technology consulting business to Barbara Corcoran and Robert Herjavec from Shark Tank. This was part of a Good Morning America segment about communicating the value of what you do– ostensibly to get a raise.  I was delighted to get an enthusiastic two thumbs up from the sharks and (a third thumb up) from tech correspondent Rebecca Jarvis (of the No Limits podcast).

Better yet, during the time on set between multiple takes I learned from Barbara that she has a 3D printer in her office and has no idea what to do with it.  “I’ve got you- Tell me one important problem about high-end real estate and I’ll show you how to use your printer to help solve it.  This is what I do. It’ll be fun!”

For me, being on TV was hard. It was new, it was intimidating, and I felt like everyone else knew what was supposed to happen except me.  For my clients, this is often how they feel about adopting new technology and it’s very understandable. Leadership, good habits, a plan and sometimes a little hand-holding are all that’s needed to nurture success and valuable results.

During the course of 3 site visits, and optional seminars, I create customized strategies, plans, and demos that allow institutions that don’t have gobs of extra time, money or personnel to still be wildly successful with rapid prototyping and other art/engineering technologies.

Contact me for a free phone consultation and if I can help your institution:

-meet existing goals via rapid prototyping

-make meaningful use of your existing digital fabrication technology

-communicating your value to your audience

Then we can go ahead and schedule the first of your three site visits.

 

 

*currently on-site visits are in the NY Metro Area only.

Reconstructed History

At a panel discussion for the Taplin Gallery exhibition Reconstructed History  a unique conversation occurred focusing on decommissioned spaces and objects, the transferred gaze, layers, landscape interiors as mental spaces and site-specific social history.  Basically, all of my favorite things.

On Art and Engineering

In addition to my regular duties as Associate Professor of Animation and 3D Design at Ramapo College of New Jersey, I’ve started to reach out to educators and artists in different ways. I believe strongly in the concept of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math). Artists have always been innovators and inventors.

The Greening 209

The Greening 209

The Greening: 209 evokes different moments in time: present, future, and past. In the U.S. a house or other building may last a generation or more. The systems we design to guide us as a society outlive us all, though they are not permanent either.  How do we know if the structures we put in place are working?  How long does the long view need to be if we are going to plan accordingly? It’s time to remodel.
