About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Cyclist! Clothing designer! Pop-up book maker! Soft electronic textile engineer! Environmentalist!
Location United States
Introduction I am a full time cyslist, operating a bike-powered advertising company, Pedal Promotion LLC. I am an artist, making hand made idiosyncratic clothing, and pop up books which are sold in venues around the world, exhibited in galleries and collected by individuals. I also have a love of live theater and produce variety shows and perform as a solo artist. While working as a researcher at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver British Columbia I refined my skill at designing and engineering soft electronic textile machines. I live in a 34' pull behind travel trailer that I built from soup to nut, using new and recycled materials. My home is powered by solar energy, and recycles water. My resolution is to build a home to live, create and raise my children in. I am an environmentalists, having worked for may years with the Georgia Climate Change Coalition, to stop many fossil fuel pipelines and produce the local Solarize Athens campaign. My professional web site features a wide variety of my creative work.
