K. Smith’s First Post

IMG_2417

The thought of formally introducing myself has actually left me at a loss of words. Speaking about myself does that to me and anything contrived wouldn’t be me. But here I am, K. Smith; writer, producer, photographer, and all around creative. You’re not supposed to start sentences with but, but so what.

I’ve only been a part of the Adafruit family for a few months now and everyday has been an inspiration for the next. Right now I program, test and prep in Fab. That’s Fab short for Fabrication or Fabulous. Learning how to solder might be one of my favorite things about working in the Fabrication department. This is all new for me and i’m excited about this journey, to cultivate new skills and apply them to my personal life.

Check out these cool pieces i’ve already made (TimeSquare DIY Watch Kit, TV-B-Gone Kit and Solder Time DIY Watch Kit)

While in real life I’ve been known to be recluse; enjoying long walks on the internet, the linger behind awkward moments and people watching, I hope to share with you the extrovert soul that compliments my introvert spirit. Coming from a social welfare and a behavioral science background I hope my experiences translate in the perspectives and articles I’ll share.

I look forward to being a contributor on Adafruit’s blog sharing stories of the women and minorities impacting engineering culture and society.

Be Good, Be Great.

K. Smith
