Peter's Story

Engineering Credentials

Engineering has fallen a bit as a symbol of cultural sexiness. But I still use the problem solving methods I learned at the University of Texas when I analyze one of my performances, construct my own accounting system, or work on my car. Maybe that's not quite as cool as graphic design, photography or adventures around the world. If you don't want the help of a creative guy who understands the value of practical, measurable and implementable solutions, I understand.

If you find yourself growing a lump of boredom over your right eye, feel free to download my Master's Thesis on High-Temperature Deformation Behavior and Tensile Ductility of Commercial Aluminum Alloys. I tried to write it in language that could be read and enjoyed by everyone, even those not familiar with terms like "dislocation climb controlled creep," but my professor wouldn't allow it.
