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.
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.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
