Excellence in Architectural Glass

May 24th, 2019

Wherever you are in the world, you can probably find yourself in the nearby vicinity of some great architecture. I know that I like to look for unique details on buildings, especially older buildings. It’s often these features that make the building stand out. Speaking on a personal note, whenever glass is involved that makes […]

Busy in the Big Apple

Apr 8th, 2019

I’m still settling back in to life in the office after a whirlwind week recently in New York, and let me tell you … what a week it was. This trip began with an early morning flight and didn’t stop until I made it home on Friday night. There were companies to visit, seminars to […]

Never too Old to Learn

Feb 28th, 2019

I think the question “how was your day?” is probably one of the worst ones to ask a child. Why? Because probably a good 95 percent of the time the answer is “Good.” In the case of my own child, I’ve started to move away from these simple, one-word-answer questions, and have started to ask […]

Glassing Around

Jan 28th, 2019

Last week I fled the cold and snow for a few days of fun in the sun and warmer temps … okay … so there wasn’t really any fun in the sun, but the temperature was warmer. So knowing the cold and snow were waiting for me when I got home, I settled myself into […]

Freeze Frame

Dec 7th, 2018

Remember cameras? Not digital cameras, but old-school film cameras? Better yet, remember waiting a week—even two—to get your pictures back, only to find that half the roll was over-exposed or of some random rock or foot or something that somehow made its way into a picture? I still have a roll or two shoved in […]

All in a Day’s Work

Nov 1st, 2018

Another glasstec has come and gone, and by all accounts, it did not disappoint. Keeping in mind the mega-show encompasses nine halls, each roughly equal to one U.S. convention center exhibition area, and you start to get an idea how big this show is. glasstec covers all facets of the glass industry, from arts and […]

A Fortnight Ago …

Sep 27th, 2018

No, not the online video game that kept kids locked up inside all summer instead of in the pool … that would be Fortnite … but as in a period of two weeks. That’s how long it’s been since I caught a red eye home from Vegas after the GlassBuild America show. I can’t remember […]

That Time I Moonlighted for DWM …

Aug 23rd, 2018

The end of August is bittersweet. I’m sad to see the end of summer approaching, yet also excited to see my son heading back to school … I wish we had time for one more summer journey, but eager for him to learn and grow. I’m sure many of you find yourself feeling the same […]

Gotham Gets Glassy

Jun 29th, 2018

From the rooftop bars to the sidewalks below, you look up, down and all around in New York and you’ll see glass. Glass towers are on the rise, making the Big Apple the perfect spot for the American Institute of Architects’ (AIA) Conference on Architecture. The annual expo took place last week at the Javits […]

London Calling

May 31st, 2018

If someone ever asks you if you can go to London, don’t hesitate in responding yes. Yes, if you have the opportunity, you can and should go to London, even if it’s just a whirlwind trip. From the history to the culture to the architecture and glass, there’s plenty to see and do. I first […]
