Hi everyone, my name is Tony Sherwood, and I love that I’m now joining Adafruit as the Senior Web Developer! This place is pretty rad.

Three years ago, I was living in Springfield, MO, where I started an art gallery slash hackerspace (http://www.squidfoo.com). I met some folks there, including Caleb Kraft, editor of HackADay, which led to me moving out to Brooklyn to work for MakerBot. I worked there for a little over a year, helped Team HackADay win the Red Bull Creation Challenge 2012, spent a brief time encouraging urban food production with WindowFarms, and now I’m here, where I can help democratize electrical engineering!

Whenever I’m not here, I’m usually at home with my girlfriend (Leia) and 5 year-old son (Alex) either drawing or building things with Legos. Our next project will be a fully functional half-scale arcade cabinet, which will also serve as a piggy bank for Alex to feed his college fund with.

Welcome aboard Tony!
