Hey there, hope you are having a great day, and welcome to Charles Buchwald & Friends, my mashup of professional services, portfolio, personal blog, occasional structure for consulting, and conduit for various projects in the realms of user experience design, software development, web development, industrial design, and exhibit design. In fact, design is the one thing that stitches all of this crazy, eclectic hub together.

Here you can find links to other current sites and projects present and past with which I am involved, and links to a few other friends on the net, including my museum companies, Museográfica in Mexico and the USA, my free development tools and plugins for LiveCode and of course intermittent blog posts since 2006 covering a dog’s breakfast of subjects.

Please browse around and contact me if you have questions, comments or suggestions. I’d love to hear from you!
