I have been a “Maker” way before there was a term or classification tied to it. I’ve been drawn to wanting to know how things work and rendering something immobile and non-functional has never stopped me from taking things around me apart. Started with my dad’s lawn mower when I was six. Next I had moved onto paddle locks and eventually electronic devices of every kind, especially if they were new.
I have made many great and not so great things over the years. I am most proud of my mistakes because I ended up learning something that made my skills better.
I am an IT professional and the distraction of creating something out of nothing reduces the levels of stress that I encounter and keeps me sane. I enjoy creating things from my imagination and printing them out on one of my 3D printers. I can’t explain the level of satisfaction I get when I can hold the finished print.
I like to share what I make because I hope that it is found useful by somebody else besides me.
