Jeremy, Old Post Office | September 4, 2018
My name is Jeremy Taylor and I love the idea of connecting people and inspiring a community of makers. I am by no means an expert in any one thing, but I’ve always been a very curious person and subscribe to the idea of lifelong learning. My formal education is in Business, Communications and Filmmaking. I’ve spent a lot of time traveling and teaching youth overseas and more recently worked in various library Makerspaces.
Many people talk about the concept of flow -- losing yourself completely in your work and feeling like nothing else matters. There are only a handful of activities that really ignite a sense of flow within myself, and making is one of them. I find it therapeutic and it satisfies a very human need to create. There is no better way to express yourself than through making something you can share with others.
Our Makerspace provides the community with access to cutting edge technology at no cost. Our vision is to bring folks in who can play and learn, collaboratively or individually. Creativity is just an idea in your head, and you don’t need to have any experience to use the space. We really want this Makerspace to be community led and welcome volunteers in any capacity. Starting this month, we will host various events, meet ups and workshops. I hope to see you soon!
