Hello! Welcome to Wake 'n Make. My name is Kristina, and I've been making things for as long as I can remember. I was raised and educated in beautiful Colorado, and have just begun my journey in the cozy Pacific Northwest. By day, I work to earn my PhD at the University of Washington in Aeronautics and Astronautics. My research interests revolve around fluid dynamics and space vehicles. When I'm not working or creating, I tend to be outdoors or playing with my dog.
My dog is a helpful assistant
As an engineer, I love creating things. I spent much of my childhood crafting and cooking with my mom, and I find these activities to be productive outlets during my free time. I believe the various crafts we made and invented led to my interest in engineering, and I'm often excited by the challenge of creating something myself instead of buying what's already made. Per the suggestion of multiple friends, I began documenting my projects in Fall of 2011. I hope you enjoy them and find inspiration for your own projects! Please feel free to send me feedback or questions.
