Tall Tales Engineering, LLC is a business that provides educational resources (e.g., books, online content, etc.) to children, parents and teachers for the purpose of educating and exciting them about math, science and engineering.

In case you're curious, I'd like to tell you how this all started. This company sprung out of an idea that I had one day while I was trying to stay awake in one of my undergraduate engineering courses. As an avid doodler, I would often find myself drawing in order to stay awake during these boring lectures (and believe me there were many).

Most of my sketches dealt directly with what was being taught in class. Some of my fellow students saw these sketches and wanted copies since these sketches really simplified the complex ideas into a fun and quirky drawing.

It wasn't until many years later when I was well into my 30's that I finally told myself that it was time to pursue what I really wanted to be when I grew up (i.e., an artist/teacher). Having developed a love and appreciation for math, science and engineering over the years by working on NASA's shuttle solid rocket boosters and supersonic jet aircraft I finally had the expertise to become a teacher so I took the plunge. It took me about two years to come up with a concrete idea for my first Tale of Whoa. This book was Feaver Fever in Spillage Village. I think it's been worth the pain and I have received a lot of compliments and favorable comments from parents, teachers and children alike. I'm now working on a second book and other content such as YouTube videos to help build a toolbox for parents, teachers, and students of all ages. Using these tools, I believe that people of all ages will be able to have a little fun with math, science and engineering.
