My self-summary
I'm a doer, shaker upper - a try to do a front flip over and over till you hurt yourselfer. My goal in life is to discover the things I find beautiful and share them with others. Yes, this does include entrepreneurship, making, Hackerspaces, community, gardening, cooking, single purpose robots who draw circles with toothbrushes!

Current projects: making an airguitar with a kinect, a drum machine made out of people using touch sensors, open source land mine detection, globalizing the maker movement.

Suggestions for activities are most welcome!

Here I am, why the hell not:
What I’m doing with my life
Currently I'm focusing on the nonprofit GEMSI which facilitates the formation of communities around the world interested in open source attitudes, DIY culture and being excellent to each other. I believe that we can create a better future, all of us, together. Central to this is education, tools, and communities of supportive people.

I also work for instructables.com and Autodesk as a consultant.

And occasionally I like putting glitter on my feet or throwing paint at my friends.
I’m really good at
rhyming the word orange
The first things people usually notice about me
I have mad energy. And I'm overwhelmingly enthusiastic to meet you.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books: The Prophet
Six things I could never do without
A mission
Good friends
My family
A good chefs knife
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to create a more beautiful world.
Methods to engage people into participating in creating and building.
How to help spread community hackerspaces around the world, especially the Middle East and North Africa.
My senses and how I'm experiencing the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Inventing the future.
Implementation is for the weekends ;)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
This is a prosthetic beard.
You should message me if
You identify with the word goof.
You are awesome and want to see how we can be awesome

Or you want to build a robot. Or go on a bike adventure. Or
dance out Bollywood movie choreographies. Or do handstands. Or make 3D models of interesting objects. Or play guitar and play tetris and drink hot chocolate. Or travel to the middle east together! Practice food! Practice languages!

You like to clown around.
The two of us
