Contraptor, metalworker, global activist, steampunk... specializing in pedal-power.

Using steel, wheels, and sewing, I rend Victorian æsthetics into a Mad-Max setting with a rigorous use of found and recycled materials.

Maker Faire / Mousetrap

I worked on the crew of the Life Size Mousetrap, a giant Rube Goldberg device modeled after the board game. Once you're flinging real bowling balls around this thing gets dangerous!

The device ends with an actual safe dropping, usually on something crushable.

Mousetrap was a centerpiece of this year's Maker Faire. It was an inspirational weekend working amongst so many active and creative people. I left with more ideas than I arrived with and I wouldn't miss a chance to work another one.
