His engaging, hands-on presentations on hydroponic window farming, solar energy and zombie survival have attracted the attention of many intrigued Chicagoans, and have brought him to TV and radio on WCIU's You & Me This Morning and WGN, and coverage in publications such as the Chicago Red Eye, the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times.
