Why do you consider yourself a Maker?
I am a maker in the way I manipulate phenomena in the exploration of materials.

What tips or advice would you give to someone who wants to become a Maker?
Be inspired by the marketing skills of our fellow Americans. We are brilliant at marketing and design. Americans can market everything from breathing to bricks.
