Here at Artisan’s Asylum, Member / Instructor Andrew Anselmo is always busy on a variety of projects: consulting work, volunteering his time to run our free weekly circuit hacking night, steward our meeting room resource as well as developing and teaching classes. On top of all that, he creates origami (paper and metal), and inspires other makers with advice to “start small.” His latest class creation is Wearable Interactive Electronics, and he continues to co-teach the Hands on Basic Electronics class. Our community recognizes him by his friendly welcomes, outgoing personality, nurture of the Electronics & Robots area, and ongoing ingenious initiatives to support the logistical apparatuses of the Asylum.
