Below are some of the coolest projects I’ve been lucky enough to take part in – Past, Present, and Future.

Way back in December of 2013, I was contacted by Nutopia, a TV production company based in the UK and US, about potentially filming a Ouija® segment on a yet to be made series on inventions that would air on the Smithsonian Channel.
