Why do I build robots?
 
 I graduated from Eastern Washington University in the spring of 2000 and moved to Hollywood to pursue a career in the film industry. Like most young people that decide to take this road, I ended up selling my soul in order to stay employed. For me, acting wasn’t panning out so, I relied on my skills as an artist to make a living. In turn I ended up in the art department working on film sets.
 
Film and television work is a blast. Every day, every project, every film is completely different and the last word I would ever use to describe it is “boring”. However, over the past 14 years I have spent all of my creative efforts building and designing what other people wanted….. i.e.  making a living! Creation is an art form that is highly personal and truly is a part of one’s self. After years and years of giving large chunks of myself bit by bit, I decided it was time to do something creative for myself. That avenue was building robots. I love it! This was the outlet that had been missing. Designing and creating robots allows complete freedom for me to do what I want while at the same time fulfills the adventure needs through discovery of the new.
 
 
My passion:
What is my passion? This is an impossibly difficult question to answer! If I had to, I would say that my passion is finding the excitement in discovery. I am constantly looking for new adventure. Road trips, fishing spots, robot part stockpiles, camping, searching for the world’s largest…….. you name it! My passion is enjoyment of the eclectic array of “stuff” that is out there and the journey of finding it.
 
 
Robots?:
 
 
As an adult this passion has continued to grow, except now it is the likes of Metropolis, War of the Worlds (yes…. The Tom Cruise movie), and The Day the Earth Stood Still (no…. not the Keanu reeves version!). 
   

Dave

Everyone has something they can do reasonably well, and I have heard if you do something reasonably well, keep doing it. Even if it is something as simple as making snow balls. Like anything, the more you do it, the more you figure out how you do it…… an viola! So as an artist I am always learning, from my art and other artists, always finding inspiration and a good amount of joy with what we create. I primarily work with charcoal, the majority of my work derived from live figure drawing. As a medium I’ve found the flexibility of charcoal and application amplifies the mood and tension of my subjects, often helping define the psychology behind the people (and robots!) in my work. It’s a constant battle and learning experience, one I’m fortunate to enjoy. My studio and home are located in Cheney, Washington, which is also home to Eastern Washington University. I was able to graduate with a minor in art and will be back at some point to obtain a Masters in Fine Art. I am a very lucky father of two sons, work full time with the State of Washington, and enjoy a wide range of activities. I regularly attend a monthly figure drawing studio, and belong to the local Spokane Sketchers group.

Tom

   
Wood worker  by trade, Tom has spent his life in a variety of fields. A logger in the 70’s, custom fabricator, commercial and residential builder, wood carver, film industry professional, certified pin setter mechanic, journeyman, and even a brief stint as a Schwann Man! Retirement is looming, and now he is really looking forward to his true calling: becoming a professional fisherman! When asked for his bio he said, as a true Montana man would: “I was born, I lived, and someday I will die.”  That’s Tom for ya!
   

Daisy

A true Kiwi! Born and raised in New Zealand, Daisy has found her calling in the film and entertainment industry. For the past three years she was working in the Armour and Weapons department on a major motion picture being shot in Wellington, NZ and now has the creative bug!
 
Her passions vary wildly from film sets to horses to being one of a handful of female hot air balloon pilots in N Zed. As a woman of the world, she has been to Australia, France, Indonessia, Italy, Switzerland, the United States, and is looking forward to visiting the Hara Juku Bridge in Japan and hopefully, someday being able to fly her balloon over the Great Wall of China!
