I am a designer, maker, and now I call myself a hacker too. I've always loved making things, from sewing to home renovation projects. This spring I attended the School for Poetic Computation in NYC, and am exploring ways to make inspiring, fun, collaborative work with technology and code. 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.
