I've moved my studio
After eight years at Workspace, I have moved my studio to Bernal Heights, to a glamorous new arts facility called my garage. Actually, the move has been very good for my work...allowing me to consolidate and push forward with furniture, graphic, and even more event planning.

Looking to mount the sewer show and tour again! I'm targeting March/April of 2014. Stay tuned.

The Sewer Tour Returns! Gather at Workspace with a bicycle, helmet, water and your burning curiosity. 3 hours, mostly flat, comfort with traffic and riding in groups suggested.

an evening "UNDERGROUND"
Wed Oct 26
Doors and Popcorn 6:30, show starts 7pm
Workspace Ltd, 2150 Folsom @ 17th

First...citizen video and understanding the weather...how local engineers use you-tube video of flooding streets to help understand the storms we experience. We'll see footage from Oct 20, 2009, when Folsom Street erupted. Presented by alocalsewerhistorian Greg Braswell, assisted by John Seagrave and Nick Birth.

Next... San Francisco filmmakers Jeanne C. Finley & John Muse and their most recent work
Manhole 452, "a darkly lyrical hybrid of rumination and documentation, so slightly tinted with humor as to leave the viewers wondering whether they perceive it or imagine it", Kenneth Baker, San Francisco Chronicle.

Shot extremely locally, this fictionalized narrative follows the reflections of a man who was once almost killed by an exploding manhole cover: he now rides the Geary Limited bus to and from his job fitting prosthetic limbs, and is obsessed with the heavy steel plates which are everywhere. What are the odds? And how about the miracles?

These events are free and we welcome your curiosity.
