My “thing” is creating inclusive spaces to solve problems, start businesses, and strengthen our communities. There's a movement happening; and we want to see it go global. I’ve been traveling the world spreading maker love - including Iraq, Lebanon, Berlin, and a bunch of other places.
This January, my friend’s 3d printing/rapid fabrication company danger!awesome brought a new type of hackathon to Boston. Our take on the hackathon was more of a free month-long workshop, which you can see a video about, here and learn a bunch about here, on our diysustainability.org workshop site.
We've been experimenting with a new educational principals and format for how maker culture can impact environment and community. Many participants weren't makers, engineers, or designers; to be inclusive, danger!awesome helped with design, fabrication, and training.

What should you ask? Well, anything you want. We’re most passionate about the future of 3D printing, rapid fabrication technology, social justice, helping others create their own DIY Sustainability experience, and our mission to spread high-tech tool/training access to everyone.
