I’m Jamie/ Jam/ Jaime and I work as a member of the shipping team at iFixit in San Luis Obispo. I believe repair is vital to all aspects of life including soil regeneration, aging, mending relationships, and reutilization of finite resources. I see it as a creative challenge to acquire new skills and deepen our roots in the ecosystem of knowledge.
During a capstone lecture toward a Software Engineering degree at Cal Poly, Kyle introduced me to the idea of right to repair. Since then, iFixit has opened my eyes to the the plethora of instances where reutilization of resources is often better than the latest invention.
My favorite ongoing project is a camper van conversion. Fun fact: Even though a bolt head might snap off when connecting an expensive battery, the shank can be extracted with a few neat skills. Outside of iFixit, I spend my time cooking, gardening, rock climbing, and practicing yoga.
