Hi, I'm Zoe

Hi HSBNE! My name is Zoe Truasheim

I’ve just joined because a friend told me about HSBNE and I’d like to introduce myself.

I’m interested in leather working, programming, D&D and I paint sometimes(artistically).
I’ve joined HSBNE because I really enjoy making things and right now I’m interested in making a hardware neural net. I’ve learned a bit about them and I even made one for a class once. I think there’s no reason why it wouldn’t be possible to make a hardware one.

I’m looking to learn anything anyone’s willing to teach me because I’m honestly not sure how I’m going to make this, I think metal work and digital fabrication would be a good place to start, but anything related to building would be good to learn.

I am currently studying a bachelor of science at Griffith university. I currently major in physics but I am hoping the graduate with a dual degree in physics and math. I work casually at an art gallery doing odd jobs.

My qualifications are that I once had an internship at an ion trapping lab where I learned soldering, basic computer circuitry (ie logic gates and how to use them). I’m good with oscilloscopes and arduinos. I’m pretty good with c++, sql, Java and python as I’ve taken a few programming electives.

If anyone is working on a project and they think any of the things I know would be helpful let me know, I’m happy to help.

Oh I forgot to mention I worked as a toy maker a while ago. Basically I just made stuffed animals. Also I’m pretty good at leatherwork, I sell belts I make at the gallery I work at and I made a suit of armour chest piece once.


That looks like a great mixture of interests, you will fit right in!
I am kind of interested (and kind of scared?) to see how the stuffed animals look like, any pictures?

@Zac_Crow will be definitely interested to see all the leatherwork!


I do a bit of leather work, and various other things. But leather is such a nice medium to work with! Ive been enjoying cooking up various oils and waxes to condition my leather possessions recently.

If you need a hand around the space orienting or whatever, hit me up and I’ll see if I can help. I’m handy in a few different areas, so like to make my self useful :slight_smile:
