  • Introductory Video -
  • Resume/CV - I'm a pretty diverse guy.I'm a Journeyman Pipefitter out of Local #208 in Denver, CO. I do AutoCAD design for a company called US Engineering in Loveland, CO. I'm an experienced welder. I also do Django/Python development on the side and hack with Arduino when I get the chance.

WHY are you motivated to support/develop this work?

  • Do you endorse open source culture?

I'm the host of The Open Source Musician Podcast. http://opensourcemusician.com . I'm also the Linux guy on OS Perspectives http://mrnetcast.com/osp and a regular contributor ot Hacker Public Radio http://hackerpublicradio.org . So I think my Free Culture credentials are pretty solid. :)

  • Why are you interested in collaborating with us?

I'm mostly interested in consulting and CAD design. But I'm willing to take any opportunity that I can.

  • How do you think that the GVCS can address pressing world issues?

I think that one thing that isn't mentioned about sustainable living is sustainable manufacturing. I think the right way to save both the first world and the third world. I see GVCS as a way to close the technology gap as well as solve problems in sustainability in developed countries.

  • What should happen so that you become more involved with the project?

Give me a todo list of what you need done.

  • What are you missing in the project?

Documentation and CAD drawings to make this as replicable as possible.

  • What are your suggestions for improvement of the project?

Get more people involved.


  • List all of your skills in these areas: Communications - Organizational - Computer Support - Finances - Design - Natural Building - Electronics - Automation - Metallurgy - Engineering - Fabrication - Agriculture - Energy - Architecture - Video/Graphics/Art - PR/Marketing - Education - Construction - Industry - CNC - Chemistry - Product Design - Other

welding, programming, CAD design, Natural Building, Fabrication, Construction.

  • How have you already contributed to the project?

I worked on the Prezi presentation for Maker Fair.

HOW can you help?

  • How are you interested in contributing to the work of GVCS development?

Like I said. Give me a list of things that need drawn up and let me go.

  • Can you volunteer to work with us, and if so, how many hours per week?

5-15 hours per week.

  • Are you interested in working with us for pay? If so, what services can you offer, and what is your hourly or per-project rate?

I would love to work on this full-time. My wife is in college at the moment so I'm the sole bread-winner for the family and that means I need stability. However, long-term working on something lik GVCS would be a dream come true.

It's difficult for me to take much time off of work till my wife is out of school

  • Are you interested in purchasing equipment from us to help bootstrap development?


  • Are you interested in bidding for consulting/design/prototyping work?


Not yet. I'm new to this. :)

  • Would you like to see yourself working with us on a full-time basis?

Eventually that would be awesome!

  • Are you interested in using the technologies that we are developing directly?


  • Are you interested in being part of the world's first, open source, resilient community? The GVCS is the preparatory step for the OSE Village Experiment - a 2 year, immersion experiment (2013-2014) for testing whether a real, thriving, modern-day prototype community of 200 people can be built on 200 acres using local resources and open access to information? We are looking for approximately 200 people to fill a diverse array of roles, according to the Social Contract that is being developed. This may be the boldest social experiment on earth - a pioneering community whose goal is to extend the index of possibilities regarding harmonious existence of humans, ecology, and technology - as a beacon of light to benefit of all people on Earth.

I would be, just need to convince the wife. :)
