Hi! Thanks for coming to my Patreon page :)

I create videos on engineering - not the kind that you find on TV (World's most impressive engineering feats!) - but the kind that provides useful knowledge for people looking to enter the engineering field or are just looking to brush up on their skills. Most of my videos cover topics in control system theory (hence the channel name), but I also like to talk about robotics and space systems too.  

Aside from videos, I'm writing a book called "The Fundamentals of Control Theory".  You can get the work-in-progress version of the book here:

I hate expensive textbooks, therefore, I'm releasing the book under a Creative Commons license so that even if you don't want to support me (or don't have the money to), you can just get the book from the link above. The important thing is that the content I create can help as many people as possible.

For my supporters (per creation), a creation is a Control System Lecture video or a section update to my book The Fundamentals of Control Theory.  At the moment I would love to produce one creation per month, but realistically, it's more like every 2 or 3 months.  Of course, that would all change if I meet my 2nd goal! I don't charge for announcements, blog type videos, or book releases that are just typo fixes.

Please review and understand your contributions.  I have a little write up here:

I like creating content that everyone can access for free.  Your support means so much to me because it allows me to be able to get the equipment I need and one day have the financial freedom to make this my full-time job.  Cheers!

If I reach this goal, I will make creating videos and writing books my full-time job! Which sounds awesome.  I'll be able to create videos more often and cover a more diverse set of content.
