I have been involved in the Atlanta maker community since 2013, and I have been working as an educator at a number of maker spaces and public events in the Atlanta area and the Southeast. I have taught dozens of classes and workshops to hundreds of students on topics from 3D printing, CNC and laser operation, Linux and web security, and costume and prop fabrication.
I have written a number of build log and how-to articles, including several build articles for Tested.com.
From 2014 to 2016, I served on the Board of Directors and as the events and activities officer at Freeside Atlanta, a local Atlanta hacker space. As Director, I worked with members and other Directors to improve the facility, create new and more accessible work spaces, and improve our connection with the Atlanta maker community. As the events and activities officer, I worked with existing educators in the community to provide additional and improved classes and workshops, as well as bring in new educators and new topics to the organization. I also organized regular social events, hosted regular open house events, and hosted open community workshops both coordinated with other members and hosted myself.
