General Manager: 2014-Present

Alex is a lifelong learner and tinkerer. Growing up he helped his mom with her appliance repair shop out of the home, and grew to love working with all things electrical and mechanical. He first learned how to weld as a volunteer at the makerspace, and now he helps facilitate makers and artists learning all manner of new skills. When he’s not managing the makerspace, he’s tinkering on something or hanging out with his cat.

Textiles Lab Manager

2023-Present

Lee organizes all the equipment of the Textiles Lab, makes sure equipment is being maintained, and helps to organize classes related to textiles projects to get people excited about textiles and to bring new folks into the Makerspace. Lee is driven to do what he does at the Makerspace by the incredible opportunity to work with equipment and learn skills that would be incredibly hard to come by elsewhere. When not volunteering, Lee is working on sewing his own wardrobe and experimenting with varying compositions of cotton, hemp and linen fibers to make pants, t-shirts, jackets and accessories.
