Well, hello! Thank you for even considering to support me on Patreon!

If you got this far you probably already know about my channel. So let's talk about some things you may not know. My name is Brian and I'm an engineer from Galway, Ireland. I have a B.Eng in Biomedical Engineering and a Master's in Aeronautical Engineering. 

My journey with Real Engineering started in early 2016 when I got frustrated with the way engineering was being portrayed in popular culture. I believe engineers create positive change in this world and I wanted to share their stories and hopefully inspire some future engineers while I was at it. 

I also just adore learning and I was inspired by people like Destin and his channel Smarter Every Day. He's actually why I studied aeronautical engineering in the first place! 

I created Real Engineering to showcase the amazing engineering that goes behind everyday things. I like to ask simple questions "Why Are Plane Windows Round? " and explain the science and history behind it.

I don't have a big production team behind me. When I started Real Engineering it was just me. I wrote, animated and voiced everything myself. Today I have another Engineer/Animator helping me create better videos, thanks to your support on Patreon.

In 2016, I managed to make this channel my full time job. That was my goal for the year. For 2017, I aim to begin expanding and employing other people. I plan to begin expanding the Real Engineering team to improve the production quality and frequency of the videos I post. All of these projects are going to require investment and your donations are helping towards that goal!

Thank you for reading all this. Thank you for watching my videos. Thank you for even considering supporting me on Patreon. I am eternally grateful for all my subscribers for helping me live my dream.

This is your chance to influence the content of the videos, and laugh at how dyslexic I am. I just had to use word-check to find out how to spell dyslexic. HURRAY FOR DONKEY BRAIN!

Goals
$1,494 of $3,000 per month
We are really growing this channel now. With $3000, I will be able to hire someone on a full time basis to help create more content. Currently I am uploading 2 videos a month, at best. I want to be uploading 4 videos a month, a year from now. I absolutely refuse to let quality be effected to please the YouTube algorithm gods, so I need to expand my team.
