The American robotics engineer living in Germany enjoys debunking people's notions of gender and at over 1,8m tall - without heels - he towers above the rest. 

He writes on his Instagram: "I got home, I quickly took off stockings, changed skirts, shirt, and picked a comfortable sandal to go out to dinner with my wife."

And adds, " Clothes and shoes should have no gender." and we couldn't agree more.
