Well, I've always liked to make things.
I think it started when I was old enough to hold a pen...
...continued through high school...
When I got to college, I didn't really know what I was going to do.
I tried Product Design (mechanical engineering + design) because I liked the idea of merging form and function.
(I also liked learning how things were made.)
I spent a lot of time in the machine shop, trying not to die.
(Me + bandsaw + other large, powerful pieces of machinery = .)
My biggest takeaway from my program, though, was the idea of needfinding.
You can create something that's breathtakingly beautiful, or a technological marvel, but if it's not meeting a need, then no one will use it.
So in terms of "liking to make things," it means two ideas to me.
I like making tools that help people achieve what they want/need to achieve.
(This is what I want to get out of work.)
I like making things that make people feel something.
(In any medium – text, images, etc.)
(This is what I like to do in my spare time.)
