Board of Directors

The Makerspace Executive Board of Directors is 100% student-run. 


Nathan Daigle
Chair of the Board
Operations Board

I am an avid hiker and rock climber. 

I am also a junior Mechanical Engineering student, and a die-hard DIYer with just about everything. I bring lots of design and production experience from FIRST robotics, as well as my own projects.

Hello all! My name is Michelle Paradise and I am currently a senior Mechanical Engineer here at UNH. Some basic fun facts about me are;  I am a crazy chicken lady, love the outdoors, always down to help people out, and most of all my brain never stops moving. Come on down and check out a project I'm working on. Even better, let me help you make something! awesome!

Scott Sullivan

Thanks for checking us out! My name is Scott and I am a senior Chemical Engineering major at UNH! My favorite things to use at the Makerspace are the laser cutter and the vinyl cutter. If you need any assistance, I'd be more than happy to help!
