Weekday working on an Architectural project. One of the great things about these times is you can work from anywhere that has a fast internet connection.

Weekend "working" on a grilling project

A sketch rendering of a restaurant interior which intentionally is made to look like it was drawn with a felt tipped pen on the back of a napkin. Change a setting and you can change the rendering to look photorealistic (left).

This “sushi” representing my personality as described to Boston area artist Seth Minkin was a gift from my former boss

Another architectural project. this time rendered to look like it was done in pen & ink.

My former boss made these cork coasters for me when he first got his laser cutter and I had just started this website.

My Story:
I’ve been practicing both Grilling & Architecture for many years. Weekdays you’ll find me designing and detailing buildings. On the weekends I switch to grilling & smoking.
In 2003 I decided to stop practicing grilling on weekends and get serious. I did this with the help of Steven Raichlen’s great books and the good people that frequent the discussion boards on various BBQ websites. This site is my way of sharing two of my hobbies: Grilling & Photography.
