Sponsor Feature: Getting to Know PrismWare!

Dream Kitchens

Meet Steve Wortley!

When and how did you get into cycling?
I started getting into road biking seriously when I was about 13. I never rode with anyone — just loved the freedom of rolling over blacktop and finding new places to ride. When mountain bikes came along I thought they looked slow and silly, but one ride on the trails hooked me — a whole new way to find even more places to ride; places I couldn’t explore on my road bike. I’ve done long distance riding with friends, but Hometown is the first team experience I’ve had and I love it.

As a sponsor, how would you like to partner with Hometown and the Team? 
PrismWare’s sponsorship is simply an extension of my commitment to, and support of, the Hometown community.

Michigan Financial Planning

Tell us about PrismWare!
PrismWare, Inc. was created years ago as a holding corporation for copyrights and patents I might want to file. Then a couple years ago I invented a jig for faceting glass so a glass artist friend of mine could create geodes and add faceting to pieces. It turns out that there is a niche market for such a device, so I began the patent process and started marketing it under my holding company. The device was quickly picked up by a glass cold working supplier, so now I manufacture and sell the LapDancer faceting jig exclusively through them. The irony that the name PrismWare came years before I developed a device that actually makes prisms is not lost on me. 

What’s your favorite hangout in Livingston County?
My favorite hangout, if by no other measure than the number of times I’m there, would be Island Lake State Recreation Area’s Spring Mill Pond. I work from home, so as soon as the weather allows, lunch consists of riding the trails and stopping at SMP to eat. Close seconds would be the Living On The Etch glass studio and Hometown, of course.

Hobbies (other than riding)?
I love hockey. I played for years and may try to get back into it this spring. My son managed Brighton High School’s hockey team and my daughter was on numerous travel teams. They both still play and I still watch BHS games, so I can often be found at some rink or another. I also spend inordinate amounts of time writing software and inventing things. Having a 3D printer allows me to go from concept to prototype with all sorts of crazy ideas.  

Winter, spring, summer or fall?
SUMMER! Give me heat!

Young Women’s Entrepreneurship Event: 

Tuesday, March 12th from 6:00-7:30 PM

The evening will be chock full of fun and invaluable information to help the young women in our lives explore and develop their entrepreneurial talents. If you are a middle school or high school student, or a young woman in her late teens/early 20’s, who is interested in starting your own business (or already have!), you will not want to miss our Young Women’s Entrepreneurship event.

We are super stoked to announce our guest speaker for this GIRL POWER event: Jennifer Matras, Owner and Head Skating Coach at Competitive Edge Skating

Competitive Edge Skating

With over 25 years of skating and training experience, Jennifer is a highly sought after skill development instructor AND a fabulous female business owner. Competitive Edge Skating is the result of Jennifer’s commitment and passion to developing a company where athletes are provided everything they need to reach their highest level of performance. 

Everyone who signs up for the event will receive a PDF version of Jennifer’s inspirational book, Building an Uncommon Champion: Help Your Child Redefine Success. Jennifer’s goal is to spread this message as much as possible to help change how coaches, teachers and mentors interact with this younger generation, and to help eradicate bullying. 

SIGN UP HERE!

Stay tuned for more details as your Hometown gals, Dawn and Leslie, plan this free event for YOU.
