Ray Cirino an inventor, permaculturist, and artist fulfills his dream of making the world ecologically sustainable while enjoying each moment doing so. On April 24, 2009 he was honored in LA Weekly Magazine as “the innovative Mad Scientist.” In 2012 he was awarded with the City of Los Angeles Certificate of Commendation for his creative contributions and community organizations. His insatiable appetite to build things has prompted him to develop multiple skills.
After twenty years of fine woodworking, he moved to Los Angeles to work as an industrial designer, welder and artist, opening a new world of discovery as an artist inventor. From 1998 to 2014 articles on his creative abilities were published in seventy-five magazines, twenty websites, ten books and eight newspapers. He was interviewed on seven radio shows and seen twice on TV. In 1998 a full page photo of his Water Woman sculpture was featured in the Smithsonian Magazine in an article about the Burning Man festival. Subsequently, Ray founded two Water Woman festivals based on permaculture techniques and sustainable art. In 2002, he began studies in permaculture and continues as a top innovator in this movement focused on sustainable energy, agriculture, water, and shelter systems. After adding permaculture to his skill set, he now has the ability to turn a problem into the solution.
