Mike is a DIY enthusiast, author, and avid cyclist with a habit of taking things apart and putting them back together as he sees fit. He grew up in Georgia shootin’ guns and cow tipping, but now lives a much safer life as a product designer in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Paula is a Silicon Valley native who had early exposure to technology, leading to a career crafting brands online and offline. When she’s not in front of the computer, you can find her practicing yoga, booking flights to faraway places, or experimenting with world cuisine in the kitchen.
Eryka is one of those people who will totally wear a fake nose ring to freak out her aunt, but will bring an amazing quiche to brunch so it doesn’t even matter. Dogs love her. Babies fall asleep on her. Her husband Neil and French Bulldog Mimzy are definitely lucky she is there to organize their lives. When she’s not making sure you have the best possible experience with Tinkering Monkey, she’s probably doing squats until she can’t feel her legs—or drinking coffee.
Henry grew up on the dangerous streets of Oakland, and even did a little time at the SPCA facilities. After getting out, he turned his life around and now lives a life of leisure doing the bare minimum at Tinkering Monkey.
Mimzy hates long walks on the beach – she prefers short sprints with a Frisbee. She has a BA in burying waterbottles in the garden, but keeps busy at Tinkering Monkey by performing her daily Mailman Watch Duties, begging for carrots and falling asleep in weird positions.
