I make things and teach other folks how to make things!
(Mostly stuff in the realm of Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics ("STEM") with a dash of creativity and design.)

Well, ok..  why do I need a Patreon?

Because I need to buy hundreds of electric toothbrushes to teach hundreds of kids across the Pacific Northwest the basics of circuits and design thinking through my Robot Mini Golf workshop.
Because I need dozens of tools like multimeters and soldering irons and oscilloscopes (oh my!) to teach folks how to build and repair and understand electronics. 
And because it takes me hours to perfect the right tutorial or workshop project, present the pieces in just the right way so students explore and discover fundamental STEM concepts along the way, and to actually write all of it down.

Basically, I've got what you'd call decently big dreams. My goal is to help improve the educational system because I believe quality education is the key to an equitable, progressive, and stable (democratic) society. Education is the foundation for solving our own and the world's greatest problems. The more we know, collectively and as individuals, the more problems we can solve and the better we can solve them!

I also believe that the best way to learn is to just throw yourself into the deep end of the pool! ... with floaties and maybe a life jacket. Which is why I create, build, and publish open-source project tutorials, science & how-to videos, and develop/teach project-based workshops.

The greatest work I do will be through my students. The more students I can teach and the more things I can teach them means a greater impact on the world and a better life for everyone! Something like that :)

Thanks for visiting my Patreon page and for reading this lil' blurb! If any of this resonates with you, please make a contribution to help sustain my work. Thank you!
