About Me

I have spent the past twelve years developing, implementing and facilitating STEM programs in a variety of informal and formal educational settings. From museums to after-school clubs and national competitions, I supervise and help enable youth to reach their full potential. I am also an expert at making all sorts of cool stuff. From model airplanes to computers and art, I love creating interesting things and taking on fun projects. Whether working my hands using traditional methods or designing things on a computer and creating it using digital fabrication tools like 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC routers and vinyl cutters, I always love a new challenge!
