Gadget one of Los Angeles' leading metal and wood fabricators/engineers/designers, who came on the television scene in 2003 on an episode of Monster House, after 27 years of fabricating large-scale public art and movie props, furniture and architectural details in Los Angeles (under his given name).
Reverend Gadget, the name, is a small mystery. The name is obviously a pseudonym. Gadget didn't want to use his real name on television on a build show, as he wanted to be "just one of the guys". But people ask "Why 'Reverend' Gadget?" Gadget is a real ordained minister and the man of all Gadgets, thus the moniker.
His furniture designs (under his real name) have garnered him a Chrysler award and placement in the Museum of Modern Art and the Cooper-Hewitt Museum. His props have been seen in movies such as Batman Forever, Spiderman, The Last Samurai, What Lies Beneath, CastAway, Starship Troopers, etc., and television shows such as Friends, Just Shoot Me, and Seinfeld.
Gadget received so much fan mail from the "Retro-Future" episode of MH that he was asked back to act as engineer/team leader in the Discovery Channel series "BIG!", constructing the world's largest "everyday" functional objects, and submitting to the Guiness Book of World Records scrutiny.
Since the show began in March 2004, he is the engineer and co-fabricator of 9 Guiness World Records for constructing the world's largest functioning blender, oil popcorn maker, electric guitar, Claw game, rotisserie charcoal barbeque, espresso maker, treadmill, hair clippers, (Dyson) upright vacuum.
Gadget has had cameos on other Discovery Channel shows as well. He made an impromptu cameo appearance on "Sucking Amps" and has since been on the yet unreleased "How to Monsterize Just About Anything" as the technical advisor co-host, and "Mega-Monster House" All-Star Build as a builder.… Expand
