Self-described BMX kid and hack carpenter David Gagné uses his vivid imagination and colorful background to build all kinds of unique creations. As a fan of punk rock from a blue-collar family, David’s passion for making came from day jobs as a bicycle mechanic and construction laborer. Today, David has a “bicycle graveyard” behind his home and a collection of upcycled projects made from old bicycle parts and a growing YouTube channel, Elm City Vintage. Join us as we talk to David about

  • A passion for photography that fizzled when it became a job
  • The punk rock DIY ethic and its similarity to the Maker mindset
  • Learning to make things from readily available junk bicycle parts
  • Diving into new things head first and figuring things out as you go
  • Learning to crawl before you can walk
  • Making YouTube videos that stand out
