Who We Are

MASS Collective provides affordable access to tools, technologies and teachers in a variety of disciplines. Through our apprenticeship program we subsidize memberships and offer hands on training and real world experience in manufacturing and prototyping. Through our educational program we recruit experts to share their experience, craft and knowledge with anyone interested in expanding their skills or their business. And through our membership program we provide makers of all different skill-sets access to the tools, knowledge and training to improve their craft. We utilize production services to subsidize equipment and training that would otherwise be prohibitively expensive for individuals or small businesses to invest in.

Board of Directors

Mike Mooney

Managing Owner

Mike has a sixth sense, but unlike the movies portray it, he only uses it for problems that need solving. Whenever a member at MASS Collective feels overwhelmed, they simply repeat the phrase "It's going to be okay, Mike will help" three times out loud. This trick has never failed.

Ryan Metzler

Chief Technology Officer

Ryan can fix electronics just by staring them into submission. If you happen to brush against him, you'll hear the sound of strange, distant radio stations in your head. When asked about this phenomenon, he responded, "The universe is very old. There is much we don't understand. Yet."

Ron Martin

Chief Creative Officer

Ron often completes a project in his head before he begins constructing it, with the materials he bought a week before he even had the initial idea. He is composed of equal parts artistic vision and technical skill, and can forego sleep by simply living off of the creative energy of the people around him.

Kyle Howser

Chief Acquisitions Officer

Capable of constructing anything he wishes, Kyle oversees workplace development. Never shy to approach new ideas, he has a set of custom tools which he uses to build other custom tools. He can cook thirty-minute brownies in twenty minutes.

Jay Caudle

Chief Financial Officer

Jay is the Zen-like master sitting peacefully in the eye of the hurricane of excitement and energy that constitues MASS Collective. He once discovered the meaning of life, but forgot to write it down.

Board of Advisors

Gabi Mooney

Director of Operations

Gabi's logistical prowess is the oil that keeps the machines at MASS running. Ever the hard worker, she spends her free time optimizing how much free time she has.

Josh Flail

Media Coordinator

Josh works in almost every media imaginable. An eye for composition and a mind for creative directing, his expertise lends itself to almost any idea at hand, no matter how unrealistic or improbable it is. His greatest weakness is poison, but only if he ingests it.

Duncan Shirah

Special Project Coordinator

Duncan is the champion of all that is creative and has a working knowledge of every physical object in existence. If you don't know Duncan very well, you may suspect him of being a wizard. If you do know him, then you know the spell he used prevents you from uttering such things.
