Me and I3

Mostly, I coordinate the welding zone and help with events.

I've been nominated for the board for 4 of the 7 years I've been a member, though I've only accepted the nomination a couple times and only been elected once.

I teach classes on anything that I know well enough to do so.

I feel a duty to serve. Several people tell me I've done well on the board, even though I honestly am not sure exactly what the board does, beyond the platitudes of "making decisions" and "running the space". That's kinda bullshit, since we all make decisions, and the space is "run" by whoever is around most. But it does help cut down on analysis paralysis to have a designated decision maker or 7. So far, the system seems to be working out.

So long as nobody takes it too seriously.

I can teach you

  • How to Weld metal
  • How to Juggle 3 balls (Yes you can learn, and it's easier than you think)
  • How to be an I3 Detroit member (mentorship)
  • How to change your tire
  • How to project your voice REALLY LOUDLY
  • How to teach a class
  • Other things!

Feel free to add stuff to this page!

Ask questions, and I'm pretty sure to answer them.
