Liz Upton is the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s only full-time worker. She runs the community, does the Foundation’s PR and corporate comms, is the person you talk to when you’re tweeting Raspberry Pi, stuffs envelopes with the stickers you buy, works with the press, takes some of the photos and videos you see here, and also wields a soldering iron in emergencies. She shares a surname, two cats and a house with Eben Upton, the Foundation’s Executive Director. Liz is an award-winning freelance writer and a freelance editor. She has a background in educational publishing. She is responsible for all the They Might Be Giants lyrics which mysteriously found their way into Learning and Teaching Scotland’s online material, and bakes a mean flapjack – you can read more about her at her blog (currently dormant, and likely to remain that way until the Foundation can afford to employ some people to take some work off her hands) http://www.gastronomydomine.com.
