After moving to the Bay Area several in 2021, Josh found Ace Makerspace completely by chance and decided to join for two main reasons.

The other is that Josh wanted to share his experience with others and spread the knowledge that he has gained both in college and on his own. He brings his engineering and industrial design education to his role as the Dirty Fab Steward.

Josh also spearheaded teaching several classes a month making the metal shop accessible to beginners and experts alike. during his time at ace.
