Scott 'Smash' Ashkenaz is a semi-retired semiconductor executive with a background in photographic science, microlithography, metrology, and strategic and product marketing for technology.

Scott's been involved in numerous large art projects, including Sonic Runway, Peter Hudson's zoetropes, the Flamethrower Shooting Gallery, and a Burning Man Temple. He travels (want to do a house exchange?), cooks with chile peppers and science, dabbles in photography, and tries to snatch disorder from the paws of two terrorist kittens.

When not collecting the stray ping-pong ball, mousie, or empty propane cylinder, he does a bit of consulting in tech and the semiconductor industry.
