The DA (formerly Dark Angel of Black Rock), fell from the sky with his black wings on fire and landed smack dab in the middle of Burning Man 97, ticket in hand. He never left.
In 2000, DA was adopted by the Department of Public Works, where he has been leading the Playa Restoration All-Star Team's (formerly The Clean Up Crew) Leave No Trace efforts since 2004, creating the Moop Map in 2006 as a way to visualize the community's impact and improvement.
As a poster artist, DA has illustrated the launch of the Burning Man Theme for 2006 Hope and Fear: The Future, 2007 Green Man, 2008 American Dream, 2013 Cargo Cult, and 2015 Carnival of Mirrors.
DA loves the Black Rock Desert and believes that if we, the community, continue to leave no trace, then together we can keep building and burning forever.
