Interview with Leah l at FunkyLaser.com

1) What has been your key inspiration to your current career? 
I started teaching technology a few years back and this is when my first love for laser cutting began. After taking time out to have my second daughter I thought it would be great to work but to be at full time parent too. My now husband offered to buy me laser cutter instead of an engagement ring , so that's when I got my first machine.  By the way I got the diamond ring too ! Lasering is an inspiration to be creative. People coming to us and asking for custom designs are truly inspiring. 


2) What do you enjoy the most about your job?  
Being creative , it's always been part of my life and having the opportunity to create something different for someone. 


3) To date, what has been your 'proudest' moment?
 That would have to be to have been self funded! Within a few weeks of starting up Funkylaser I had managed to save for a bigger laser cutter and within six months have stocked up a whole workshop full of lovely materials! To take on staff and student interns. Oh and most recently to have been asked to design something for a large UK cosmetics company - watch this space to find out what and who we made for! 


4) Where do you see yourself in the future?
 Expanding further - we recently moved from the back bedroom in our home into a designated work shop, I hope to employ more staff and for our trade mark to be world wide known. 

5) What tips/advice would you give to someone who wants to go down the same career path as yourself?
 Be creative , think outside of the box and to never give up.  


6) Which would you say is your favourite item off your website at the moment?
 Our name necklaces and cake toppers. There's nothing better a designer likes than to design custom pieces.
