I am very pleased with the pendant lights I received. They were well packed and arrived in great shape via FedEx. The pendants are beautiful and appear well made. Can't wait to install them in my kitchen renovation. They should look amazing with the matching chandelier I previously purchased from Dan. Many thanks for a great product!

My name is Dan Cordero and I am passionate about rearranging life from behind the camera and repurposing vintage gadgets when the camera is off.

Just the facts…

I currently serve as producer and senior editor for an innovative product development firm in the DRTV division. Working in video production for the last 15 years, I’ve become a proficient videographer, editor and producer earning an Emmy Award for my editing in the national television show Everyday Edisons. In addition to life at the firm, I have offered my production skills to numerous businesses creating engaging and effective marketing videos. Past clients include: Edison Nation, Macaroni Kid, Small Hands Big Art, YMCA of Greater Charlotte, The Isabella Santos Foundation, Hitachi Starboard, Boy Scouts of America, Dunes Realty, Hot Huez, Eggies, SilverFly, Gyro Bowl, Scott Johnson Band and Reid’s Fine Foods.

Living behind the camera is part of my day job. By night you can find me dissecting vintage appliances, visiting hardware stores and breathing new life into once forgotten treasures. My unique artwork has an international following with featured displays in Enventys, SilverFly, WestElm, The Uncommon Store in Alberta, Upcycledzine, Jab Real Estate, Cochon Restaurant, Gimmie Some Style Blog, Edison Nation Blog, Sundance Film Festival, and QC Exclusive Magazine.

Where it all began….

As a boy I would take apart my toys and remove batteries from every remote control or appliance in the house (much to my parents’ dismay). To this day I can’t tell you what I did with those batteries or the remotes’ back covers, but they just needed to come out. And so the fascination began. How does a toy work? What makes it run, sing, jump…and eventually break? Later my curiosity led to film work. How does one take random pieces of footage and create a new cohesive story? After feeding my curiosity for many years I finally learned how to rebuild, restore, and reclaim – with a creative twist.

Allow me to inspire and reclaim some creativity in your life….I promise I won’t steal your batteries.

Just for laughs…
