As Coordinator and Technician of the Maker Arts Space I facilitate faculty, staff, and student involvement in the Maker Arts Space. I work closely with faculty across departments building curriculum that relates to digital technologies and making. In the classroom I teach and support faculty who are utilizing the Maker Arts Space (some examples of my student's work). I also run workshops, coordinate visitor programming, and oversee the open studio hours. This includes managing student workers during those hours.
My job is both day to day management of the Maker Arts Space as well as long term strategic planning, marketing and branding. I do everything from machine maintenance to class lectures.
My main interests are in digital fabrication (3D printing, CNC machining), 3D design and prototyping, design for disability/universal design, community building, music production, video production, animation and science fiction. I like a lot of different kinds of art but I really love whimsical, charming and silly art the most. For example, I appreciate a really good pun in an Art piece. A link to some of my artwork.
