Bill KrieghI am running for a Board of Directors seat because I’m interested in seeing the organization grow and become a place more folks can call “my home away from home maker space”. I was appointed Board/officer secretary in October and wish to participate more in this facet of the organization. I‘ve been interested in sparktrickery ever since I stuck a knife from a silver flatware set into the control panel of my grandmother’s electric stove and burned the blade in two at the ripe old age of 3 years. I’ve dabbled in the field in some fashion or another since. My experience includes doing tool and die work and general maintenance at a place that made electronic components for Western Electric, owned and operated an electric motor rewinding business, worked for Colo DOT in the traffic signal/electrical maint. part of traffic division – 6 ½ years as a supervisor..

I ran my own business as an electrical contractor and have been a Colorado Licensed master electrician for 28 years.

I retired and moved to New Mexico 6 years ago to be with my high school sweetie and will be firmly anchored here for quite a while.

My interests are varied and among them is electronic tinkering and model railroading.


Charel MorrisA Quelab member since 2012, serving as officer & director since 2014. Founding director of ABQ Maker Faire. My making is more arts than tech such as hand drums, sacred masks, altars, worked with gourds and various mixed media pieces to creating workshops, retreats, live events, concerts, recording engineer and producer. My focus is on building our maker community at Quelab and in this region. Quelab has an important year ahead with key decisions and looking for opportunities to expand our community and bring in some more cool tools to play with. I have spent the last 20+ years working with Hackers – DEF CON and Open Source Developers – ApacheCon and in this time I have come to understand the power and some of the pitfalls that are a part of growing a community of makers of all sorts.
