Hannah is a writer, editor and tech nerd based in Berlin, Germany. She spends most of her time on her computer, taught herself HTML at the ripe age of ten, and has an embarrassing love for all things geeky. She awaits the day when 3D Printers can print her a family of real kittens from the comfort of her own home. Why isn't anyone working on this?
