Parker is an Industrial Designer and founder of Clever Little Machine Inc. and Moonshot Camper Vans. He is the former co-founder of Zsas Ice Cream and has over 15 years of experience in design and business with an emphasis on creative contact points for customer interaction. Parker also is a long-distance hiker (10,000+ miles), camper van dweller, builder, entrepreneur, and mentor.

"We started Moonshot Camper Vans because we wanted to build something that connected people to nature and each other. We also wanted to create something with the quality of art set in the natural world. We want you to get out there. It's a big amazing world, go and see it! Feel that moment when your head and your heart un-clutch, breathe fresh air, hear the quiet places, feel the grass under your feet."

Throughout the episode, Moonshot Camper Vans is explored in detail;

  • They provide easily transportable and adaptable modules, making camping and van life more accessible and flexible.
  • The modular camp van modules are designed for comfort and aesthetics, featuring smooth, rounded surfaces that create an inviting and comforting atmosphere.
  • Customization options include the ability to wrap the modules in different colors or designs, allowing users to personalize their camp van to suit their preferences and emotions.
  • Plus there is potential for carbon-sequestering, eco-friendly modules as a future endeavor.
