David R. Perry (he/him)

David has been an Ace member since 2019, and is thrilled to serve on Ace’s interim board because Ace has provided him with a piece of his life he didn’t think he needed and wants to give back. He loves how Ace enables people from all walks of life to make amazing things (like sushi robots) and is excited to help Ace reach folks everywhere, especially those with less access to creative and technical resources. Though David initially joined Ace for the Workshop, he ended up falling in love with the laser cutter. He now teaches Laser Basics classes and always looks forward to the look of awe and wonder on student’s faces when they burn their first project, a nametag. Leveraging his professional experience, David also helps to manage the IT needs of the organization. Over the years he’s participated in Ace’s mutual aid collaboration with Lead to Life, taken classes in each of Ace’s Program Areas, and has provided mentorship and support to countless laser cutting novices. As a board member, he’s stoked to be a part of big decisions that will help Ace thrive, become more accessible, and even more Ace!
