What Floats My Boat
My passion is to create transformative experiences with art and technology. For the past three years under the moniker BlueRoar, I have been coproducing a biannual high-concept music and art show called The Castle Series. The best part of producing these events and experiences is seeing how much people enjoy our creations. I enjoy knowing I’m able to put a smile on someone’s face and make their night enjoyable. I’m also obsessed with my 3D printer — let me know if there is anything you want to design or print!
