It’s a question I hear a lot these days. It seems like a simple question. How did you learn to do that? But if you read between the lines there are more questions, and the answers are often very complex and sometimes very interesting.

Sometimes the undertone of the question is: I’m amazed that is possible. How did you learn to do that? Sometimes the connotation is more of a surprise that “a person like that” can do something that doesn’t fit the stereotype in their mind. I can tell you that the answer to the question can sometimes be difficult to explain. Many times, the knowledge and experience come from years of practice, or youthful and obsessive curiosity. However, the root of learning to do that thing that invokes that question is simple; acting on one’s curiosity, exploring, experimenting, designing, building, and learning.

I spend each day surrounded by people exploring, experimenting, designing, building, and learning. MIXXER members have interests in so many different areas, as a group, and as individuals. Our members are acting on that innate curiosity that is within all of us. Are you?
