What making skill are you most proud of?

I am a 2D person who has designed systems for deconstructing old ships and creating a single platform for low and moderate income people to secure all the tax refunds and public benefits which can help them overcome poverty. I am pretty well skilled with a camera and with developing ideas, but am now ready to learn some 3D skills and new production skills for political outreach.

What is your favorite tool?

Democracy

What project are you working on, or wanting to work on?

I am currently working on an exhibit to celebrate the activists who helped us find out about the FBI domestic surveillance program COINTELPRO. They are getting an award from the Bread and Roses Community Fund on June 24 and I hope to have the exhibit up by then. The exhibit will feature xeroxes of some of the files taken from the Media PA FBI office in 1971, as well as posters of selected files and a more truthful imagining of an FBI badge in 3D.

Introduction

I work at the intersection of policy and technology to build tools to help fight inequality and exclusion. My current project is developing an indoor, controlled-environme­nt aeroponic farm at a commercial scale. I also have been exhibiting my photos.
