I had never met him and he had yet to address me when iconic San Francisco Conceptual Artist Tom Marioni turned to me inquiring: “And what do you do…other than lift weights?”  It felt like a gift, this question.  Why should I have been so lucky as to receive an introduction that spanned both my interests in weightlifting and existential contemplation.  Yet, I found myself unable to respond, momentarily at a loss for words.  Thus, over the passing months, I have often considered this question: “What do I do?”

Mr Marioni, I’m pleased to announce that I have found the answer.  I uplift the spirits of Oakland High School students everywhere, one t.hanks at a time.  Below you will find a link to the Kickstarter campaign that artists Packard Jennings, Steuart Pittman, and I just launched.  We call ourselves Wonderment Consortium.  Please, if you would, take a moment to watch the video, and pledge to our campaign.
