About:I am something of a Jack (or in this case, Jane) of all trades, when I find something that interests me, I tend to study it ad nauseum until my ADD brain spots some other shiny new thing and then I'm on to my next obsession. In 2011 I discovered my local Fab Lab at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry (Maker's paradise!), and after stalking them for several months, I began volunteering there in an official capacity (they let me play with the toys, what was not to love?). That lasted for about eight months, after which (with much competition, of course) I managed to secure a paying position, which I still hold today. If you haven't been, look up your local one and see about getting a tour/access, it's well worth it!
