It's a new dawn

Life has been quite a jumble lately. Among my responsibilities as a continued consultant for my previous research, I have been finding myself almost shockingly occupied.

First, I've done a couple fun things like: a bit of a night out in mpls, seeing Ratatat live in mpls, going to a Vikings game (been years), going to the Twins game that resulted in a division clinch, after said clinch.. celebrating with the team and getting some high-fives n such, getting involved with a nearby ballroom studio, and continued doing graphic design business cards too.

I've also managed to continue getting part-time pay for my further research work. Along with that I am also getting more involved with Peragen Systems. I have visited the site twice now and we're so very close to start-up. Additionally, I am now going to be working in Aspen to model the process as it is currently, then eventually scaling up. This involves me working in dtwn mpls in AMEC's office - a real engineering consulting firm. Who knows where this will all lead, but I never expected it that's for sure.

I'll leave this post with a clip of what I may consider one of the better rounds I had at my last comp (at least for smooth). More available on my youtube channel.

Well hello there

So It's been about 7 months - been meaning to add a few updates. First off I graduated! I'm a chemical engineer now.. sorta.

Anyway as a followup to the last post, I competed once more and the results were outstanding. Details are best seen here. Summary is that I received 5 1st place ribbons, 17 overall.

In other news I created an online portfolio back in late May. The site is to highlight some of my better works. I have also come across a few more design projects (for money!) Including another icon, a quick webpage, and additional work to be completed. Check out the site if you haven't already. Chris Wedding Design

I'm now in Minnesota doing a little bit of work and a whole lot of slacking. Getting sort of involved with a start-up company as well as continuing research. In my free time I dance at a nearby studio and chillax.

One last thing, with the new addition to the Big Ten.. here comes a rough idea I had for a new logo. We'll see what they do though.

**Edit** Out of boredom I have revised this design just slightly.

Ok, well for some reason or another I think I'll try to post more often. Just want to get my name out there a little more I guess.
