Jake Spurlock

When Utah native Jake Spurlock (pictured above with his little brother Ben) got hired on as MAKE’s web producer, I was super stoked, not just because Jake is a great guy, but because we have another snow addict on our team. Anyone with mad love for snowy mountains is aces in my book. Now when either of us sees a particularly good video or killer shot, we have someone else in-house to geek out with. So for you, Jake, my fellow partner in snowy adventure, I gift two super useful tools of the trade. First up, Jake’s been skiing for a lifetime, so naturally his skis take a beating. For all those core shots, here’s the Ski Mender Rp100 Base Repair Pistol:

And with two ridiculously cute bambinos under the age of 4, Jake has to make the most of the rare chances he has to head to the mountain these days (at least until his kids become little rippers too). So to make sure those skis are in tip-top shape, I’m throwing in the Dakine Super Tune Kit:

Looking forward to riding some Cali pow with you, Jake! I’m doing a snow dance in your honor as we speak.

Goli Mohammadi

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.
