Though my writing primarily circles around food, beverage and travel, you'll occasionally see me cover something outside that realm.. maybe art, design, music, or a profile of someone doing something cool. And when I first heard about Professor Dumpster, I knew I had to meet this guy and interview him. I occasionally blog for Sparefoot, a local startup (voted Best Place to Work in Austin for at least two years in a row!) Considering they deal with storage spaces and Prof D lives in a dumpster, it seemed like the perfect place to tell his story. And his story is really relevant for any foodie with a kitchen gadget collection like myself. It's interesting to think about shedding it all in the name of freedom from… stuff. Read on for the details!
(Oh and, for the record, I did ask him what food he prepares in the trailer, but for now he's just making Turkish coffee and picking veggies from the community garden in his backyard. And a lot of eating out I suppose. I'll have to check back in as the dumpster moves into its final phases to see what kind of kitchen set-up he has going on..)
