“BBQ Dave” Sheinkopf taught in the NY school system for 10 years and has spent the last 5 of those years developing a curriculum for teaching analog and digital electronics to high school students in order to prepare them for life in an increasingly-technified world. Before teaching, Sheinkopf worked in a garage that specialized in vintage European sports cars making him as comfortable with a box wrench as he is with a soldering iron.
His electronic work has been displayed in MoMA, The Brooklyn Museum, the Red Hook Criterium and in many gallery shows. His mechanical work can also be seen riding around New York on one of the many bikes he has serviced and sold at his underground bike shop in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
In addition to teaching, preaching, fluxing and muxing, David is currently the Director of Education at Pioneer Works Center for Art and Innovation in Brooklyn.
