Sanju Patel @buildtomade


From DIY-er to creator, the founder and creator of Build-to-Made loves to tell stories from his garage, drawing an audience into projects – to spark DIY curiosity and learn something new. At an early age, Sanju embraced programming that led to a successful career in tech and marketing. But he could never shake off the passion for working with his hands, inspired by both of his parents. Today, you can find him always experimenting, fixing things, working in his driveway or building in his garage, giving you the confidence to try it. If you can imagine it, you can most likely build it – from build to made. Sanju has turned his passion for storytelling into a small business that has collaborated with some of the world’s top brands such as 3M, Channellock, Home Depot, and Ryobi.

Building and designing and creating is fun, but the connection that is possible online is unlike anything else and is what Kenna is most passionate about. Reaching people quite literally across the world, connecting with them and truly learning from one another is a unique aspect to content creation that is not found in any other capacity for Kenna. Kenna and her family left the big city almost two years ago to live in the rural mountains of Idaho where she is renovating her house top top bottom teaching and showing exactly what is happening the whole way through. She loves spending time with her husband and kids, reading a good book and the magical sound of a can of Diet Coke opening.
