Hi, my name is Marek but I answer to Maz. I am a compulsive maker and fixer and I have been making things since I was young. Amongst other things, I have built a  telescope,  a  house, a recording studio,  musical instruments, a theremin, a wind turbine,  bicycle powered smoothie machine, video rocket and a full sized UFO.  And as part of the Star and Shadow II build team, I also built a cinema.  In my spare time, I run Fixit Cafe, a loose collection of individuals devoted to preventing landfill and a choir of noisy singers (noizechoir).
