About Kay Vincent / LaserSister
In 2003 I took a sabbatical from my teaching job, to do a Master’s Degree in computing at Brighton University in the south of England.
Unfortunately, three weeks into the course I was squashed by a car outside the university which broke my pelvis, legs, right elbow, right shoulder, and a few other little bones.
While recovering from my injuries I started writing articles for craft magazines, and also did an MA in Creative Writing.
So now I am an author, craftsperson and lasercutting business owner, and enjoying the adventure. Wish me luck!
Once you’ve finished reading about the Kay Vincent (LaserSister) lasercutting site I also have another website, KayVincent.com, for general (non-laser-y) matters. For example, in 2019 I decided to put all of the above experiences together, and started a PhD in Education. I’m currently looking into ways to encourage children – especially girls – to participate in ‘STEM’ subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).
In the meantime I continue to be intrigued by the intersection of technology and traditional crafts, so I will keep exploring those areas.
Thanks for reading. Bye!
