Origami (Japanese paper folding). I can any question regarding how to fold any model from simple to the most complex. I excel in the interpretation of diagrams and symbology. I have been folding for 35 years and have been folding complicated models for 25 years. Some models I fold take 6-10 hours. I have beta tested several books for authors to make sure the diagrams can be followed.

Experience in the area

I am a member of several Origami societies, have been featured on TV and the NY Times. My greatest accomplishment is folding several models which take 5 - 15 hours to complete (without cutting)

What do you like about this subject?

It can be both challenging as well as satisfying. You can create a very simple model or the most complex and still impress others.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

While I have created several models, I hope one day to be as prolific a creator as several of my collegues in the field.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Origami in its purest form only allows square paper with no cuts. Lesser restrictions allow odd shapes or cuts. I fold only in the purest form.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

The most controversial area has to do with aesthetics. Is it enoough to create a bug or does it have to have 6 legs, 2 antennae and a segmented body.
