Designed and installed running rigging improvements that fit the needs and budgets of competitive sailors. Helped in choosing proper hardware and cordage depending on the application for the sailors. General splicing of high-tech synthetics in high-load applications, hardware installation and maintenance is what I like to do. My rigging installations have directly contributed to improved performance of multiple teams. Applications of statics, mechanics of materials, dynamics, and machine design are confronted with the harsh nature of the elements, along with with the other end of the user interface, that being the fickle end-user.
