Josh Williams

Prior to working at Maker Works Josh Williams co-founded All Hands Active (AHA), a non-profit community run hackerspace in Ann Arbor, MI. Through AHA he helped establish after school and library programs geared towards connecting youth with tools, electronics, and programming.

Beyond that Josh enjoys developing and teaching curriculum and dreams of launching youth oriented makerspaces that help augment the traditional educational needs of a community.

At Maker-Works you’ll find him expressing exuberance about connecting more people with more tools, and when that’s not happening you’ll find him tinkering or exploring the world with his wife Nicole.
