Jerome Converse- Vice-President

I am 66 years old and am enjoying my retirement by volunteering for the Ice Age trail; building and maintaining the IANST both at the local chapter and state level. I've been a member of Whitewater Makerspace since 2013 and am currently serving on the board as vice president.  My career background primarily comes from involvement in a farm machinery dealership.  I have an interest in all things mechanical. I'm fascinated by machinery and prime movers. I tinker making things, modifying things, repairing things; going to great lengths to fix things most people would throw away and replace. My goal at Whitewater Makerspace is to further getting young people involved in "learning by doing", teaching by example, and get the creative juices flowing. And to expand my horizons by getting proficient in stuff outside my comfort zone; like 3D printing, industrial sewing, and aluminum fabricating
