JUSTIN MERRELL, CEO of ADIAON
Growing up in Gaithersburg, Maryland Justin encountered many STEM related opportunities that were engaging and instilled a sense of curiosity. While attending Penn State Altoona, he became aware of the fact that these same opportunities were not available locally, and with the mindset that there is no better time to make an impact than now, he began to make a change. He engaged with the local community and brought a makerspace to central PA.
Justin Merrell is the CEO of Adiaon, a company focused on the development of makerspace management platform. He is here to represent the Altoona, Pennsylvania based makerspace, Catalyst Space; of which he is both the founder of and current board chair.
