Production Leader 

Project PPE at Colorado College

During the start of the pandemic and lockdown, there was a severe shortage of protective equipment for front-line workers. I worked with two other faculty members and a small band of students to use the resources we had to make face shields which we donated to local emergency workers. We also donated a large number to the Navajo Nation who were particularly hard hit by Covid at the time. I was in charge of the Covid shield design (in Adobe Illustrator), and ran the laser cutter to produce the face-shield part of the design.
