My name is Patch Kessler. I enjoy long walks, runs, juggling, cafes, bookstores, and movies. I love pondering problems in mechanics, mathematics, and design. I also love to travel. This is what I wrote of myself in 2008, and it's still fairly accurate!
Mechanical Dust is a repository for things that interest me, and things I want to share with other people. These other people include future versions of myself, which I find need occasional reminders of my dreams and ambitions!
