Presenting @natlmakerfaire about “My Journey as a Military Maker”

I’m a huge fan of Maker Faire events and whenever I get to a new duty station, I check to see if there are any Faire or mini Faires nearby.  This year I made it out to the inaugural National Maker Faire in Washington DC.  This time I went not only as an attendee – I also presented on “My Journey as a Military Maker”!  I spoke about some key maker related events in my personal, educational and military work life.  These included descriptions of my technical internships abroad, making as a form of stress relief during deployments, and making in support of cyber education.  I’m so happy to have shared my experience with other makers and look forward to speaking more on the topic in the future.


Before the talk, I met up with Dale Dougherty, founder of MAKE magazine and creator of Maker Faire, to chat about our experiences.
