Steam Power is Making a Comeback | NBC Bay Area

I was interviewed this week for the local NBC News station! Here’s the link to the video segment:

I brought out a few of my friends to the secret warehouse that stores the Steampunk Treehouse –  Sean Orlando was there to talk about the Treehouse, along with Alan Rorie, Oliver W. Lowe and Emily Beighley.

Oliver is working on a book titled “Steampunk: The Retro-Futurist Dream” to be published by RE:Search Publications. Sean and I were both interviewed for that book so I’ll make an announcment about its release at a future date….

Emily Beighley builds fabulous “Neo-victorian Antiquiteis and Curiosities” which she brought along to show to the cameras.

Alan Rorie brought out his Dihemispheric Chronaether Agitator which is also featured in the news segment.

A big thanks to Jake Von Slatt and steampunkworkshop.com – the interview that Meridith did with me on their blog a few months back has brought me a ton of press and attention!
