Howard Sneider lives northwest of Boston and consults in the Bioprocess field. Growing up, he took as many things apart as he could in the house to see how they work. (They weren't all reassembled.) These days, in nearly every setting he finds himself, he is the resident gadget guru. Howard lives with his wife, two children, and pet turtle. In his free time, he does what he can to stay active and, of course, play with gadgets.
