Leigh first became interested in sustainable transportation when he helped lead a team of engineering students to build Western Canada’s first solar powered vehicle at UBC. Leigh went on to design battery packs as a consultant for several automotive startup companies. In addition to his extensive engineering design background, Leigh is best known for creating the Mondo Spider, a pure-electric 1,500 lb walking vehicle. This project led Leigh to co-found the eatART Laboratory in Vancouver, BC. Leigh holds three patents on fuel cells and automation devices. Currently, he is focused on renewable energy solutions, and product design. Through good design, Leigh strives to push technological and cultural boundaries.
