I am a designer, maker, and now I call myself a hacker too. I've always loved making things, from sewing to construction projects, and recently renovating my house. I work as a designer at the Action Mill, where we use the principles of human-centered design and nonviolence to address large, intangible problems. I love what The Hacktory has become, and am really thankful for all the contributions from people over the years that have helped make it this way. I hope to see it continue to grow and encourage others to hack and make cool things.
