Aerostatic buoyancy is the principal that lifted the first human to overcome gravity in 1783. It continues to bring awe and value to our world. I have been an active certified hot air balloon pilot and balloon builder since 2009, I am also a FAA certified hot air balloon repairman working at Stumpf Balloons in Vermont.
I am a resident at Pneuhaus design studio. We work with companies of all sizes to create custom, impactful installations. Working with this brilliant group of designers, and creatives in an expansive 7500 sq ft studio gives me the space and inspiration to engage in the critical practice of testing and implementing novel uses for technology.
