Generator took me in ‘feeling very alone. Now I’m in a very large extended family. Creating a transcranial direct current stimulator – a brain trainer – hopes to get it affordable into ‘the hands of the needy’. Now working with ‘indie developers’ to create cabinets for their games.

My business has grown through many baby steps. Slowly but steadily, with many little successes. I currently have 22+ wholesale accounts and an online shop and social media outlets all bringing in revenue! From handcutting everything with scissors before I found Generator, to streaming my production methods, it has been very exciting to see it take a shape all on its own.

No matter how crappy my day has been, I can go to the Generator, start to work on my projects, and it's at that instance that I know everything's gonna be ok.
