Are you a maker? If so what kinds of things have you made?

I built a tree house when I was a child, a 10'X12' tool shed from scratch, painted die-cast model, and I love LEGO's

Are you interested in the idea of a maker space for Burlington/Alamance County?

Yes! I am new to the area and would like to meet some folks who share the same interests.

Would you be interested in joining a space? partnering to create the space? Spreading the word?


What skills, knowledge, tools, or ideas can you share?

I worked as a project manager at the Mississippi State Health Department's Bureau of Public Water Supply, so I have a very high attention to detail. I was very involved at Ole Miss where I graduated with a B.S. in Chem. Engineering. On top of my academics, I pursued my interests of group-based projects such as Engineers Without Borders and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers.


I'm a recent chemical engineer grad who loves to work with my hands and explore new methods of design and construction.

What Matthew R. is saying about this Meetup Group

Very diverse which is excellent. Once we get project discussions moving along (granted I left around 9 after the showcases) I believe the group will come together more and start opening up to each other.
