Hiya! I’m Stephanie. I have been a part of Adafruit since January and am excited to introduce myself to you as the most recent member to join the community and support team. I was assembling components for kits and desoldering LED strips; now I will be an active member of our digital community, answering support questions and contributing content to both the blog and the Adafruit social media accounts!
I graduated from CUNY Hunter College with a BA in Anthropology. During college I spent most of my free time in the darkroom, and continue to do so as a volunteer lab monitor. These days I’m working on baby sized prints to randomly give to my friends, but still print 11×14 or 16×24 when I come across an image that simply needs to be big. Whenever I need a break from city living, mostly in between semesters, I leave the city as often as physically possible with my dslr and favorite guy, and just explore.
Here’s a shot of a great friend from a couple of years ago:
Since starting at Adafruit, I’ve been increasingly eager to work on my own projects, like this spokepov, to make my boyfriend more visible (and awesome) on his evening commute. Now I just have to get my hands on one!
You’ll be hearing from me soon!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
