I make things. I solve complex creative problems across physical and digital worlds with a equal parts knowledge, experimentation, collaboration, and mad-science. I have spent years in artistic production, mechanics, electronics, crafts, and fabrication for theatre, spectacle, and theme parks while building and maintaining web projects to promote causes I believe in.

Interests

Apart from making, I'm deep into board-games and I spend as much time as I can my wonderful partner. Together, we explore cooking and eating world cuisine, watching movies, fighting for social justice, and playing with our pet rats. It's a wonderful life.
