A thinker, a dreamer, a true renaissance man. Prescott dabbles in most every kind of medium. It’s not odd to see him running around with a camera in one hand, a drill in the other, with a sketch pad in his back pocket all while maneuvering an industrial-sized forklift. He is a visionary here at the Imagine Nation, constantly in the lab cooking up new ideas, designs, videos, and whatever else he can get his hands on. When not traveling the world, building stages and art installations, or trying to better humanity, he is meticulously hammering away at small pieces of copper, hand making intricate and personalized rings, necklaces, arm-bands and more.
