In the spirit of the “Humans of New York” photo series and social media phenomenon, Do Space is inspired to work with staff and volunteers to create a “Humans of Do Space” series that shares the stories of our members, volunteers, users and staff. The goal of this effort it to capture the people that are using the space and how it affects their lives. What does it allow them to do? What does it allow them to make? How are people using the space to overcome obstacles and get things done?

Matt McCuen is one of our regulars who you will often find in the 3D Lab experimenting with all of the various equipment when he is not working at Wheatfields in the Deli. In addition to creating for his own enjoyment, Matt also volunteers to help make the Do Space 3D Lab better including printing custom parts for the Taz and custom vinyl cutouts for special events. His enthusiasm for the maker space is infectious and he loves to share his knowledge and excitement for all the things that he creates at Do Space.

What are you passionate about?

“Technology, gaming, 3D printing and laser cutting”

What does Do Space mean to you?

“A place that I can help people learn new technology, while I learn as well.”
