Lite Notes

Infinity and Beyond

Apr 25th, 2022

James Webb was born in the county that neighbored the one where I was born and grew up. The local high school was named for him, and I had friends who went to school there. But until the James Webb Space Telescope launched last Christmas, I didn’t know anything about James Webb. I now know, […]

Chemistry 101

Apr 4th, 2022

My original plan was to tell you about attending the BEC Conference last week. I wanted to share how great it was to see people again, to talk and see people smiling and happy—people were so happy. It was two years since the event last happened, and people were glad to be back. But something […]

What’s Next in ’22

Feb 28th, 2022

Business is booming. That’s probably what you’ll hear if you talk to most any contract glazier about their work these days. That is also evident in the February 2022 issue of USGlass magazine, which includes our annual ranking of the top contract glaziers. And in case you missed it, you can also read about that […]

The SoCal Life

Jan 31st, 2022

“There’s no way this flight will take off on time.” That’s what I was thinking a week ago Sunday while driving to the airport in (what someone raised in North Carolina might call) blizzard-like conditions. It was so bad at one point I thought about turning around and heading home. But I figured best to […]

Trending Green

Nov 1st, 2021

When I was about 14 I decided I wanted to make a difference in the world, grow up and work for the Environmental Protection Agency. I declared to my family, friends and anyone who would listen, we have one earth and we must do our part to save it. I made the profound (probably somewhat […]

Stay Your Course

Sep 27th, 2021

We’re two weeks post GlassBuild America, and if there’s one thing we learned, you don’t need a big crowd of attendees to have a good show. The number of attendees and exhibitors was down compared to previous years, though not surprising given the ongoing global pandemic. However, even weeks before the event, I talked to […]

Better, Smarter, Faster

Jul 26th, 2021

There are only five days left in July … five days. Where has the summer gone? Once we roll into August it always feels like summer is winding down, and in a sense it is, as we prepare to send the kids back to school. As many of us begin back-to-school shopping for the kids, […]

Going for Gold

Jun 28th, 2021

In less than a month the world will come together, as we all gather around our TVs to cheer for our countries’ Olympians. Yes, nothing can unite us like sports. I love the Olympics, especially the summer games–gymnastics, swimming, track and field … who will be the best and bring home the gold? If you’re […]

Project Showcase

Apr 26th, 2021

After more than 20 years writing about architectural glass, you can imagine that I’ve had the chance to cover some pretty unique and interesting projects. The first building project I covered was back in 2000, and was the Experience Music Project in Seattle. It was such a cool project to write about, and was actually somewhat […]

The View from Here

Mar 29th, 2021

I don’t always write the lead story for the daily USGNN e-newsletter, but the past couple of weeks have had me pulling double-duty. In addition to my USGlass editor responsibilities, I’ve also been compiling the USGNN lead stories. Sure, it’s added to my daily workload, but it’s also given me a chance to step back […]
