Dan Goods Bio
While creating a pipe organ out of soda pop bottles, gardening at the Huntington Gardens and designing four-dimensional objects, I developed a passion. It is to give people experiences where they interact with something beautiful, meaningful, and/or possibly profound. 

I now get to do this as the Visual Strategist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and, in my own art practice through public and private art commissions around the world. In an unepected twist, last year I was selected as “One of the most interesting people in LA” by the LAWeekly. I live in South Pasadena with my wife and 3 kids.
