I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
Currently I am running the Metals area at ASU. I love working with the students here, and am lucky to have such a well rounded shop to teach from. We cover so many techniques and concepts, my "job" never has a dull moment.

"I am in the boomer generation, and when I was starting out life on my own, I didn't want what my parents had, or anyone else's parents, so it is reasonable that the new generation doesn't either. The boomer generation seems to be the…"
"In addition to my artwork, I do silver repair. Very few of the pieces I repair are from silver collectors. Most silver is inherited from family. Some pieces are in bad shape, or the silver is in need of repair after it was broken by the next…"
"This is a really interesting article. I'm a designer, maker and educator, and I've noticed that more and more students coming in are X and Y's. It's easy to label them, and not necessarily fair to paint them all with the same…"
