Alex Hornstein is an independent inventor. He spends his time dreaming, designing and building impossible, impractical, and wonderful things, and he’s particularly fascinated by communities of people that work creatively with technology. Nowadays, he works mainly on clean tech and digital manufacturing technologies.

When Alex isn’t building stuff, he’s usually goofing off with friends, playing with motorcycles or walking on a trail.

All of this is a whole lot of fun.
