believe that education should be a marriage of
"hands on" learning as well as conventional
teaching practices. I am currently melding my
skills as a reader/writer/producer, with those of
the engineering field. This will hopefully
translate into better reading, fabricating, and
writing students. I am using my vast experience
in electronics, robotics, and mechanics to join
forces with writing, reading, and actual
experimentation to try and bring a level of work
that will be commensurate to a college
educational experience. I am planning on
creating many more educational films, labs, and
anything that will fit the constantly changing
face of Engineering. Our students must learn the
newest things in order to avoid moving out into
the real world poorly equipped with antiquated
