An aspiring polymath and mechanical engineer, I want solutions to real problems while reducing external impacts (think: first, do no harm). With an insatiable desire to learn everything, I'm taking lessons from designing physical objects and applying them to abstract ideas and vice versa. I've spent a good portion of my life thinking about 3D printing and manufacturing as a whole. Through interests in blockchains, outdoors experiences, and travel, my desire to empower others is all focused on making stuff that matters and helping us realize there is a large of amount of stuff we trick ourselves into thinking we need that we don't. Lover of land. Traveler of earth. Builder of substance.
