I am a naturalized US citizen from the former Soviet Union where I held eight Certificates of Invention from their equivalent of our Department of Patents. I consider myself an intelligent and very resourceful individual and take pride in my ability to analyze a problem from many different directions, feeling that a fresh perspective is frequently the source of a simple and efficient resolution. I have four business ideas that I believe are substantial and will create auxiliary infrastructures with an additional numbers of jobs when implemented. The first idea will boost production of solar batteries in near future by creating a variety of new, different from already well known, installation applications that are being used by the government and corporations. This project will help to boost production of clean electricity. Mass production of solar batteries will generate a condition when their price will drop to a level more affordable for an average household. Improvement of the power network security (as an opposition to technological misuse and accidents as well as to terrorist’s threats and acts of sabotage) will take place due to deployment of dispersed, grid-connected solar batteries, which will contribute to strengthening the reliability of the U.S. power grid. Economic advantages are the creation of auxiliary infrastructure with an additional number of jobs, lowering energy costs, which affect all markets; not as much maintenance expense as compared with other sources of electricity. One of the political advantages would be less dependence on foreign sources of energy. The second idea will reduce airline expenses, significantly increase airport productivity, have positive impact on the security as well as provide growth for a related market. Unsolicited proposal with description of this project was accepted and taken in consideration by TSA at April 2003, before its transfer to DHS. It could be a positive factor in the project development The third idea that came up as a logical continuation of the second one will introduce a new concept in cargo transportation. The fourth idea will solve the solid waste problem. This project will eliminate landfills, bring profit, and most importantly, make the environment cleaner. My goal is to create new ventures. It is very hard for an independent inventor to develop a business plan. My innovations while beneficial cannot be protected by patent law and are too costly to be developed by individual investment. Accordingly, they might be brought to fruition by the government, or a corporation. I am looking for help to gain access to decision making corporate or government official. Therefore, I will be able to bring my proposals to their attention. If they will find that my projects have merit, I will proceed with my endeavor to create auxiliary infrastructures with an additional numbers of jobs.

The artifacts were often made from found objects – an Ivory dish-soap bottle transformed into an earthenware figure.
