Artist | Hobbyist | Artisan Crafts
United States
I currently live in Richmond, Virginia, but I probably wont live here very long. I'm always moving for one reason or another. I'm married to a beautiful and smart lady who shares many of my hobbies and eccentricities, and those she doesn't share, she accepts. I'm an artist of many talents, but I'm not an expert at any form or medium of art. If you look at my gallery you'll notice I jump around from one thing to another. Yes I AM color blind... not completely of course, but I do have a hard time properly identifying and recognizing colors. I wasn't always color blind, it came upon me in the last half of my life, so I know what colors SHOULD look like, I just don't see them that way any more. So if I know the name of a color, I can usually properly use it in an art project.

I got into Steampunk around late 2009 and have jumped boots first into that world. I was lucky that Cincinnati and Ohio in general had a great and large Steampunk community, which allowed me to gain many friends and grow into the steampunk community. Now in Richmond, VA though, my wife and I are working to build a Steampunk community that will allow us to have a similar social life as we had in Cincinnati.

I try to do some tabletop gaming now and then, hence all my painted miniatures, but I don't do it regularly any more. I have had so many hobbies in my lifetime, that I often have to "trade in and out" of them so as not to fill my home with unused junk. I often sell off the accoutrements of one hobby to be able to enter into another.

For my profession I do simple HTML coding, convert learning materials to online formats and handle content management for a Distance Learning bachelor's degree program that is administered through the Blackboard learning environment.


Now that I have SteamFunk BOOMBox at Chesterfield Comic Con by CaelynTek done, I have a commission to work on, then after that I need to finish a costume, then work on some new goggles and guns for my Etsy shop, because I almost sold out all my stuff at the Chesterfield Comic Con. Busy busy through the end of April. !
SteamFunk BOOMBox at Chesterfield Comic Con
I finally got a chance to take the BoomBox out to a con. It's a small but very Cosplay oriented convention held at a local Library. I had a couple of tables there selling my work and promoting the Richmond Steampunk Society. I'm wearing my Steampunk Prince cosplay, I think the SFBB matches it pretty well. That's my wife in the middle picture.

You can hear the boom box playing music and shooting in this video at my instagram:…

SteamFunk BOOMBox
This is a modded NERF Mastodon blaster. The blaster's internals have been upgraded with an 11.1V Lipo battery, which improves the rate of fire and projectile velocity.
External mods include a custom Boom Box shell, a stereo Blutooth speaker, sound activated EL Wire and a magnetic mounting for a cell phone.

A video demonstration can be found on Instagram here:…
Hi everyone, so I've been unemployed/had no day job for over a year now. My wife makes enough money (barely) to support us, but my health problems and their corresponding bills keep us from making enough money for me to justify continuing my deviantart core membership. (it just expired). I think there is a way for "gifting" memberships, and I'm not too proud to ask, if any of you are rolling in dough enough, to ask for help with that. Thanks. Perhaps I could make some goggles or steampunk a small NERF gun in exchange?
The Tree Hugger Maverick
The Tek University and Tek Armory have come up with a new blaster meant for use by the brave technology scouts that spend day after day searching for signs of technology and habitation in the post fall world. After reports that some of the trees in the aether radiated forests have become. . .animate. . . a need arose for a weapon that could protect our citizens and scouts from any wooden threats. This newly modified version of our wildly popular Maverick pistol, shoots negatively charged aetneric projectiles that can negate the movements of a zombified tree, for a little while.


This is a functional NERF Maverick painted for use in a Steampunk or other cosplay. You can buy it from me on Etsy:…
