Meet Our Leadership Team

First and foremost, we're a team of makers and avid do-it-yourselfers.  We have designed, prototyped, and manufactured dozens of products over the past three decades.  We've taught product design and guided thousands of designers in their journeys to build whatever they could imagine.

We founded MakerStock to be a single-source supplier of materials for maker labs and the maker community.
