Hi there!

I'm Kim Arre, Software Project Manager and former Software Developer here at iFixit! I graduated from Cal Poly SLO in 2016 with my degree in Computer Science.

If I weren't pursuing a coding career, I would probably be a makeup artist. In the future, I hope to find ways to combine these two passions somehow.

I am so grateful to be able to work for a dog-friendly company. The ability to bring my doggo into the office with me on rainy days is something I never take for granted.

My favorite method of destressing from school and life is by escaping to a few hours of creative makeup fun. My Bane mask shown here is probably my favorite because I freehanded it while using a reference picture from The Dark Knight Rises movie. It was done with a combination of makeup and facepaint and took about 3-4 hours to finish.

Other than face paint, I like playing around with normal beauty techniques, as well as a little bit of special effects stuff such as fake cuts and wounds.

Protip: The iFixit Pro Tech Toolkit has the perfect tools for depotting eyeshadows from their original packaging.

With this kit and a little fire, anything is possible!


From age 10, through my college career I was in marching band. I played clarinet as a main instrument, percussion as I got older, with some colorguard mixed in.
