Romich Foundation operates a small free community (Creston area) makerspace that includes laser engravers, CNC routing, TIG welding and other technologies. The Maker Faire display will include photos and items fabricated in the makerspace.
Barry Romich is a graduate of Case Western Reserve University School of Engineering. He is a serial entrepreneur and is an avid supporter of making. In addition to Romich Foundation work and operating the makerspace, he recently participated in a CNC router construction workshop. Current interests include learning Arduino, adding grid failure battery backup to his residence, and planning an expanded makerspace in which the only utility will be Internet.
Barry’s interest in energy sustainability is evidenced by a 10+ KW grid tie solar PV array, a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle and various local charitable initiatives. He is a multi-engine instrument rated private pilot with about 2000 hours flying time, but no longer flies and has enjoyed motorcycle riding.
