Natasha's story

Hi! I’m Natasha - a designer, maker, educator, and the creator of TechnoChic. TechnoChic is a combination of my three passions: technology, design, and teaching. As a kid, I loved to craft. I was always making things and asking for the latest craft kit for my birthday. I decided to go to school for design, and after graduating with my BFA in 2008, I worked as an educator teaching computer lessons inside an Apple store. I loved showing customers how empowering computers could be (especially for creative endeavors) so I returned to school to further explore the intersection of technology and design. There, I met other women like me who were fairly new to DIY electronics, and we realized that girls had fewer opportunities to learn about electronics as kids because it was thought to be only an interest of boys. I set out to change this by presenting electronics in a place I would have discovered them as a kid - as a craft kit!
