Lite Notes

Friends, Wine and Glass

May 4th, 2018

I have been blessed with an uncanny memory. I remember details about past issues of USGlass, which issue an article was in—even ones that are several years old, as well as trips I’ve taken and the many places I’ve been. My first trip to Texas was going to the old Contract Glaziers Educational Conference, which […]

A City So Nice, They Named it Twice

Mar 30th, 2018

“New York, New York. City so nice they named it twice. Manhattan is the other name.” If you’re a fan of NBC’s The Office, you might recall that quote goes to none other than “World’s Greatest Boss” Michael Scott. I loved that show and could watch it over and over; and yes, sometimes (I’m not […]

Extreme Sports

Feb 14th, 2018

Whether it’s summer or winter, watching the Olympic Games is one of my favorite things to do. No matter the sport, you have to admire the hard work, dedication and determination of these athletes. I’m nothing short of amazed by their talents—extreme talents in some cases. So, it was no surprise that I sat there […]

A Year in Pictures

Dec 28th, 2017

Here we are, saying good-bye to 2017 and hello to 2018. One of the things I like to do around this time is take a look back on some of my favorite memories of the past year. And I can’t think of a better way to do than to scroll through the photos on my […]

2017’s Defining Moments

Dec 1st, 2017

What a year. That’s what comes to mind as I sit here and think about 2017. What a year. There has been so much negativity and disturbing news, particularly of late with account after account of sexual harassment cases. I mean, if you’ve ever had aspirations of making it big in Hollywood, now may be […]

New York State of Mind

Oct 26th, 2017

You’d be hard pressed to find anyone who would disagree that New York is one of the best cities for architecture. Just look at some of the impressive buildings—from the classic art deco designs of the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building to the modern aesthetics of the Hearst Tower’s diagrid façade and the […]

Women in the Glass Industry

Oct 20th, 2017

It’s amazing how much you can learn about a person when you take the time to listen to what they have to say. Where do they work? What do they do? Hobbies? Best Experiences? Worst? I can tell you from experience, I had the best time reading all of the nominations we received for the […]

From the Outside In

Sep 22nd, 2017

By all accounts, GlassBuild 2017, which took place last week in Atlanta, will not be forgotten. Not because of what happened within the Georgia World Congress Center, but because of what happened outside the days prior … leading to what ultimately didn’t happen inside. Given Hurricane Irma was barreling its way north, I was surprised […]

A New Kind of Revolution

Aug 31st, 2017

There’s a lot from the 1980s I hope doesn’t make a comeback. I can do without the big shoulder pads and the overabundance of Miami Vice-esque everything, from the clothes to the hairstyles to that beachy-white-pastel décor. Please, stay gone. But, on the other hand, I think the 1980s brought us some of the best […]

The Big Shake Up

Aug 2nd, 2017

Disruption is all around us, and I’m not talking about the street noise outside your windows or the non-stop talkers standing outside your office door. Whether you’ve recognized it yet or not, the glass industry is in the midst of a major disruption and we need to step up and take action. If you’re not […]
