  I think any type of tangible creativity (making) helps with professional work. There is also a control aspect, in that I get to decide what I want to make and when, etc. Within professional confines you can be placed on a team where you don’t even get to see the finished project because it’s not your team’s job or because of bureaucracy, which detaches the producer from the final product and discourages good work.

 I have been self-employed for 23 years. I constantly have to reinvent myself. Seven years ago I decided to take on teaching students robotics as after school and camp programs. Since then, I have created a hackerspace and have annually recreated the curriculum for my students to keep the classes fresh and relevant. My current desire is to push the maker movement as deeply as possible into the curriculum to encourage students to think past perceived limits in their environments.
