Interview by Victoria Saha
1) When you were growing up how much of technology were you surrounded by?
When I was growing up, I wasn't allowed to play video games (console or online) or watch TV during the week days. I wouldn't say that I was surrounded by too much tech growing up, but since my parents were both doctors, I had a predisposition to liking science. My favorite video games were (and still are) Pokemon and The Legend Of Zelda.
2) What were your thoughts when you were first introduced to 3D printing?
My first thoughts were wow. I was amazed that an object could by created by a computer. My first project and time I used it was for science class, where we had to design a balloon cart out of old materials. A classmate and I asked if we could 3D print ours in instead (our school had just received a Solidoodle 2). Thats when I fell in love with 3D printing
3) Can you tell me how much of a challenge it is for you to come up with designs?
It is a bit of a challenge to come up with designs. I'm always looking at Thingiverse and other people's designs to try to think of something. I try to make things that are either useful or aesthetically pleasing. One of the best ways I have found for inspiration are old Leonardo Da Vinci designs/paintings. They are awesome
4) Where do you envision 3D Printing going in the upcoming years?
I think 3D printing is the future. Not only can we currently print things in plastic, but now developing tech for bio-printing, steel printing, food printing, and much more! Soon the whole world will be filled with 3D printers !!
