Profile Information

What do you make? (please answer so I know you're human & not a bot)
Right now, very interested in wearables, led's and futuristic learning.
I am part of a collective called Gray Area Foundation for The Arts and I just opened a store called Archetype. I am looking to meet designers/artists who are making wearables, products etc. This is such an amazing new industry and I would love to help represent it in any way possible.
