What do you hope to get from this meetup?

I just want to create a great community of artists, inventors, and tinkerers in Tacoma. Lots of groups are around Seattle, and I think its time to bring that community to the City of Destiny. Let's be inspired by eachother. Let's learn new skills and make new things! I want to meet interesting people and see interesting projects. I want to this group to be a resource for students to learn new skills and a network for connecting them with jobs in the industry.

What kind of projects would you like to work on?

I love all types of projects. Right now I am working on lasering stuff out. I am a photographer, so I am exploring new mediums to showcase my (and other photographers) work. I have dabbled in 3D printing with the Makerbot and our new Mojo Printer. I would love to learn CNC machining and how to weld.

What do you want to learn?

Welding, Arduino, robotics, more laser techniques, and wood/metal working.

What knowledge can you share with others?

Marketing and business management. Prototype creation process and project management. The fun stuff I know is lasering, 3d Printing, and photography.

Introduction

I'm a Maker at heart and a project manager by trade. I love projects and people. Starting FabLab Tacoma has given me a workspace to jump into the technology i never had access to before to make really great things! Laser, welding, CNC and 3D printing
