Federico Tobon is a maker and artist living and working in Los Angeles with his girlfriend and two cats. Self described as a "curious generalist", Federico likes drawing, painting, woodworking, metalworking, electronics, sewing and digital fabrication. He tries to bridge the maker spirit with art by creating images that have a hand-made feeling and include moving parts and mixed materials like wood, cardboard and fabric.

You might want to bring a battering ram if you're at a dinner party with Taylor. Just sayin... Federico makes creating your next password the most fun and contemplative part of your day (mad props to xkcd). He also shares a way to convert your 3D printer into a laser printer. um... WUT! Rob heats up some perler beads and ices up his grille cryptography. Also shrink wrap is a wonder.
