When I arrived at MIT, I was immediately dumped into a job that most days felt like an agitating washing machine, spinning at a hundred miles an hour. A fortunate coincidence during a search for a gift for my predecessor led me and my Administrative Officer, Karen Yegian, to the MIT Glass Lab. We met with Peter Houk, the lab director and eventually acquired a gorgeous vase for Larry V. While on one of our trips to the lab, I asked Peter if we could somehow join. He said, “with a name like Glasmeier…” and being staff and faculty, of course you should be in the lab. In the flash of a moment Karen and I began a four-year journey as members of the lab. The accompanying video animates the story of my experience as a member of the MIT Glass Lab.
