Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Prof. Edward Bandersnap, an Inventor of Fantastical Technologies. I have several creations that fill a wide variety of purposes; all made with a fantastical aesthetic.
My creations may be viewed on Facebook, where one may also follow my exploits.

The following is an account of my early years:
While still but a young lad my family departed on a journeyto the Americas. We were to visit my uncle who was living in Montreal in the Dominionof Canada at the time. This was in the early days of airship travel and although primitive by today’s standards the voyage abroad was to have a profound effect upon my adolescent mind. From such lofty heights I saw for the first time the wonders of the new world, great stretches of trees and lakes. It was however in the cities where I saw that which struck me most of all.
It was when the dirigible made landfall at the aerodrome atop Mont Royal that I first noticed it. There was a freshness about the place, a spirit of invention permeated the air. I was immediately enthralled by the clockwork carriage that carried us into the city where wonders of technology greeted me at every turn.
Amazed by the advances taking place in the world around me I finally knew where my future lay and set out forthwith in pursuit of my eventual career. I dedicated the following years of schooling to thestudy of engineering and the sciences while ensuring an understanding of the world at large.
It was with this solid base of knowledge that I set out upon this globe as a creator of fine fantastical ornaments and technologies. Creating the technologies that will bring us forward into a shining new future.
