Our dear friend Matty Sirek passed away on Saturday, February 6, 2016.
I’m lucky to have filmed the first day that I met Matty Sirek. It was at a steampunk gathering at Pleasant Home in Oak Park, IL. Mohawked Matty played croquet on the lawn and impressed everyone with the fact that they worked as a gear engineer. What could be a more steampunk job?
From battling the gender binary to battling cancer, Matty Sirek was an inspiration to the community. We love you and we miss you.
