STEAMpunks.online is powered by XVII LLC, Performance PC.

STEAMpunks.online was inspired through the personal, academic, and professional adventures of a band and comic geek, Disney fanatic, gamer, graphic designer, web developer, photographer, writer, art director, and most importantly, crafty and thrifty mom of four, who currently functions as a creative in the world of engineering research & development.

Stumbling across RISD’s STEM to STEAM initiative quickly peaked an interest.  I have long believed that many innovators have achieved goals by successfully bridging the arts and sciences in conjunction with innovative business strategy and a healthy balance of stewardship, charismatic, and visionary leadership.  Innovation requires opportunities in order to occur, through open and respectful collaborative engagement and knowledge sharing, we may be able to significantly increase opportunities for new or improved ideas.

The blog material and resources on STEAMpunks.online may be considered food for thought and community engagement in the teaching and discovery of topics related to creativity, innovation, crafting, technology, and pursuit of academic research in areas of design, user experience, makerspace design & operations, rapid prototyping technology, creativity in collaboration, innovation metrics, management education and pedagogy.

I’m hopeful that others may be inspired to engage, learn, and share experiences of making things and bringing creative thinking into their lives and endeavors.  I’m always glad to help others in their journeys of creative teaching and knowledge discovery, in hopes of avoiding some pitfalls or tackling challenges faster.
