What do you get when you combine a social justice educator and a mechanical engineer?

What do you get when you combine a social justice educator and a mechanical engineer? ...no really, what do you get?! We don't actually know yet; and we're constantly trying to figure it out. So please let us know.

Ever since we first met in our condo complex about 4 years ago, we were not only fast friends, but we quickly took our relationship to the next level: we started doing household repair projects together.

Our first project was a bathroom sink and from there we became over confident believing we could fix anything with a Youtube video and the right tools. Even though we've had a few mishaps along the way (we are NOT plumbers), we have managed to get quite a few things done.

While making repairs we usually end up chatting about things we could invent that would be the next BIG thing. We haven't figured that out yet, but we have pulled out the crafting tools and made some cool things here and there.

As a result of pieces we created at a paint night over Zoom, ShopStudio154 was born.

We're excited to see where this takes us!
