Hailing from the wild, wild watering holes of West Texas, Chainsaw has been known to put the fire into Burning Art. Armed with a guitar and a mouthful of bottle rockets, he’s served as Pyro Lead for Flipside, Myschievia, and Freezerburn, in addition to many other burning and flame art projects over the past decade. But he’s not just good for burning stuff down; in 2007 and 2008, he led the Design and Fabrication Team that produces the effigy for Flipside, after building and burning his chainsaw sculpted Birdcage in the desert in 2006. Despite formal training as a mathematician, and boring day job doing programming and statistics, Chainsaw spends much of his free time drinking fine tequila, butchering poetry, and building whatever whim captures his interest: electronics, inflatables, airplanes, guillotines, or street signs.
