What making skill are you most proud of?

I get a lot of mileage out of knowing how to clamp things safely and effectively.

What is your favorite tool?

My hammer. I use it to drive nails, remove nails, chisel wood, and forge metal, with finesse and power.

What project are you working on, or wanting to work on?

Recently I've been building a lot of utility furniture; I'd like to get back to more complex woodworking, but have no shop access or serious plans yet. I want to solidify my web programming knowledge, probably by writing a portfolio webpage. I'm in the middle of an environmental sensoring project, destined for a local elementary science class. At the Hacktory, I teach classes (Sensors, Circuits, Soldering) and help organize events, and I'm working on sprucing up the webpage and adding open-licensed class materials so hackers everywhere can learn more.


I'm a science educator with a physics background, who recently moved to Philadelphia and started volunteering at The Hacktory. I mostly build in wood and metal, but I know a bit about circuits and programming too.
