of my work as interventions into systems. What I mean is that I am a
hacker. I know “hacker” often has a negative connotation when it comes
to someone stealing your identity. But I use the term in the context of
the DIY/Make movement. In this context, it simply means a person that
likes to take things apart, see how they work, and create derivative
works. I believe that we need to practice our ability to “hack” – to
talk back in the language of our culture. Our culture should be
read-write not read-only.
I am also a scientist, and a musician. I like to teach and help people
understand things. I like to solve problems. I like to make things. I
think the world is a beautiful place, an ugly place, a downright silly
My wife (Melissa Frueh, a.k.a. Sqrl
) and I are both artists. Together we run a graphic design studio called Sqrl & Bee Studio
where we design toys and DIY kits, as well as custom graphics for websites, or print.
