Christopher Larson recently came to Backbone through a temporary internship program via the Crucible. All students from his university spend the two months following their holiday break in an immersive, professional internship that they must seek out. He approached the Crucible last November and was matched with me based on his skills experience and interests.
In the past two months Christopher helped me with my wood stove project, prepared for Crucible classes, gave demonstrations at two of our fundraising events, helped me move into a new workspace, and still found time to make himself a few pairs of tongs, a post vise stand and a mini propane forge.
He was energetic, assertive and productive. He also kept me entertained with endless descriptions of his outlandish plans for future projects. He reminded me a lot of my younger self and he leaves big shoes to fill for the next Backbone intern.
Good luck with the rest of the school year Chris, looking forward to working with again!
