As one of the earliest members and one of the first trustees I've continually been involved in the running of the Hackspace. As trustee again I would be able to make that presence more visible and give our members something to laugh at. "Uw verbeterde toekomst begin hier! "

So, I generally don't ever know what to write in these things, but I enjoy the Hackspace and think it's about time to give something back. By becoming a trustee, I feel that I can help guide a place that has provided so much, not only in terms of the tools and physical space, but the community and friendships that I have become a part of over the short time I've been a member.

I've been a member of Nottingham Hackspace for 3 years now when not studenting, and got a great deal out of it. I've a wide variety of interests, with a focus on metal working, electronics and textiles. I'd like to improve metalworking accessibility, mainly by providing one to one instruction on the big tools. I will soon be working part time, hopefully having plenty of time to focus on being a decent trustee. I'm also interested to see where Hackspace will go - I've watched it develop a great deal during my time here, I'd like to contribute more in the future!

Having been a member of Nottinghack for around 4 years now, I've been involved with various projects including:
  • RFID payments for the vending machine and associated note acceptor
  • Working on the tools access control modules for the laser cutter and 3d printer
  • Server side parts of Gatekeeper, including the initial membership database
  • Barbot...

I'm currently on the Network & Software teams, and help to maintain Gatekeeper, HMS and other miscellaneous systems.

Whilst I won't let not being a trustee stop me from being involved, I'd like the opportunity to better support Nottinghack in the future.
