“I would like to create something that makes the world better.
Finding awesome answers to life’s problems.
The big picture of what I want to continue to do is something
that’s gonna change the world in a huge way.”
When Lisa was 10, she built Doughboy, her first robot. For her, it’s all in the family — her father’s a robot builder and her mother collects them. But she really got hooked when her father came home from a Robots War competition with a trophy and videotapes of the battles. Since then, she’s been building robots and competing in Battle Bots, worked in a start-up that was bought by Mattel and continued to utilize her unique skills at the world’s largest toy company.
