Meet our Magnificent Makers
Little Inventors wants children to open their eyes to the world of invention and creativity. But beyond the invention drawings, there is a unique opportunity for children and makers, designers and artists to come together and collaborate to bring children’s imagination to life.
By taking children’s ideas seriously and presenting them in a professional manner through collaboration with skilled makers, we will help showcase children’s original ideas, perspectives and voices.
We also want to challenge the skills and experience of adult makers, and encourage them to push beyond their own limits by engaging with the highly imaginative and unhindered minds of young children.Do you make things?

I've loved making things since I was a kid, which led to me studying electrical engineering and having all kinds of "maker" related hobbies, from 3D printing and electronics to glass work. Professionally, I spread my love of science & engineering through Let's Talk Science's outreach program. I love sharing my passion for understanding how things work and creating new inventions with kids across Canada, and giving other volunteers the tools they need to share their passion too!
I'm a creator, a maker, an industrial designer. I enjoy the mix of scale and materials my work brings, designing one-off and art-based items, alongside mass-produced objects and individual interiors, furniture and lighting.
Learning the processes is key, knowledge of a workshop/factory informs the designer to create better objects. It's why making and documenting Little Inventors ideas will create the next generation of designers!
Student at Ravensbourne University studying Graphic Design
I live in Long Beach, California, USA. I live in a house full of tools and scrap materials so I can make something any time I feel inspired. I've always been a maker, starting with popsicle sticks, coat-hangers, legos and tape as a child. Lately I've been working on inflatable underwater robots. I would love to help children learn to make their ideas into reality.
