makeasks MAKE Asks: Maker Inspirations
Make: Asks is a weekly column where we ask you, our readers, for responses to maker-related questions. We hope the column sparks interesting conversation and is a way for us to get to know more about each other.

This week’s question: What person(s) inspired you to become a maker or set you on a new trajectory in what you make?

My father was making and fixing things for as long as I could remember. From working on VW Bugs, to a rooftop parabolic water heater, he taught me to be unafraid in learning new things; to plunge headlong into new ideas that I could cause to come to fruition.

Post your responses in the comments section.
