This blog may be named after me, but that doesn’t mean I can do it alone! It takes a truly wonderful team of talented people and dedicated people who stick by the JenniferMaker core values to serve the needs of the 300,000+ makers in our community. These are the people behind-the-scenes who keep everything running smoothly, and I am forever grateful to them.
JenniferMaker Leadership Team
Greg Reese – Studio Director (aka Work
Greg oversees our studios, efficiently managing and allocating our physical resources to keep projects on track and within budget. He also contributes and/or creates many of the amazing DIY projects that appear on the blog (like the all the furniture and shelves in the craft room, the R2-D2 bookcase, and the garden wall) to essential infrastructure upgrades (like faster Internet and video equipment). He Greg also designs papercrafts, such as the Vintage Red Truck and enjoys creating things on the Cricut Maker and the 3D printer. In addition to all this, he keeps things running smoothly at home and is my rock. We could not do any of this without him.
