Elliot Naess grew up backstage at his mother’s repertory theater in Oslo, Norway. Yet he never tried acting until now!
Moving to California in 1976, he worked with trucks and cars, and with a typewriter, and settled in Lake County in 2002.
Divorced for some years now, Elliot has recently been studying human emotions, relationships, and behavior. This includes an attempt at meditation, and his mantra is “She must be out there, somewhere.”
Elliot tinkers with bicycles, buses, pianos, and other mechanical toys.
He is active with Citizens Caring For Clearlake and other community affairs, in kinetic sculpture racing, and he runs the theme camp Elliot's Naked Bicycle Service & Piano Bar in Black Rock City.
