The Company I Keep
Mark (Epu) Sowers, Alicia Feltman and Takeshi Okada are some of the best and most-talented people I know. Lucky for me they’re also the people I work with to bring you the Four Lights Tiny House Company.
Jay ShaferI design all of our houses and furnishings, and I assembled the team you see here. I love what I do, and I do what I love.
Turn-ons: Truth, Love and Beauty as exemplifies great design and great people.
Turn-offs: The lack thereof.
Design-thinker, user-insights nerd, and desk carpenter. Mark is the bean counter who keeps fuel in the proverbial tank, so our Four Lights road trip can continue.
Turn-ons: ridiculous humor, a design approach to making anything better, cooperative organizations
Turn-offs: ulterior motives, power over common-sense & fairness, obviously-fake 'architectural' stone facades, deus ex machina movie endings.
Alicia is the pixel smith, typographical witchdoctor, and CMYK mixologist for Four Lights Tiny House Company. In her spare time she gardens, cooks exotic meals, and tends her flock of chickens and children on her makeshift urban homestead.
Turn ons: Challenging the status quo, Subverting the dominant paradigm, and playing the devils advocate.
Turn offs: Lack of integrity.
Drawer of lines and confidante: Intrepid traveler on two wheels, cryptographer, modernist, musician, and architect.
Turn-offs: Willful ignorance and thoughtless consumption.
