Peter Wagner


Peter is Davis' second-most famous inventor, after [wikipedia]Paul Moller of Moller International (Peter bristles at the comparison, pointing out that Paul didn't actually build his craft, and it doesn't work yet, while Peter has built over a hundred of his vehicles). Peter is the creator of the Whymcycle. He pays for this habit by being a substitute teacher at the DJUSD. He's a real-life [wikipedia]Wallace. Like Wallace, he is eminently friendly and always happy to discuss his projects -and let kids ride them- wherever he is found. He's currently building a large bicycle sculpture for the new Explorit Science Center building. He works out of his garage in his West Davis house.
