Heather Classen

Heather is a techie and designer. She learned to play violin in the Wakefield school system. Constantly intrigued and inspired by all kinds of music, she has also learned to play guitar and piano, written songs for a rock band she played in, and dabbled in Celtic and Klezmer music. On her bucket list: compose symphonic music.


Taking time away from her career as a computer chip engineer, Heather is currently living the life of an artist, doing graphic design work for the CSO, painting, hand-knitting pattern design, and doing fabric design. She is 9 years into running the Meetup group she founded, Nerd Fun Boston.
