"Why, that's me!"
I've worked on racecars, robots, and UAVs. My passions are startup teams, teaching young people and music.
Back in Perth, Western Australia I worked three jobs - I was a Lecturer in Applied Engineering, I ran a rapid prototyping co-workshop in the heart of the city called SOLDER and I worked on a prototype for a new era of neural peripheral at HUMMTech - a Perth based hardware startup.
Previously I'd been a founder of three other funded startups. Two of them have websites - Picci, a facial recognition meets social media app based in Perth and Jakarta, Indonesia; Conifr, a carbon emissions tracking app based in Santa Cruz, California.
I've got two startups on the way, let me know if you're interested in the UAVs or large-format spacecraft!
After all this ramble I'm here to level out my mastery of fabrication and manufacturing skills, as well as meet new people, visit new places, and be a part of the FabLab community movement as it grows!
I did a huge write-up of the ins-and-outs of my motivations for taking up this course in the preamble for Week 9 and compare my thoughts and observations of other students' situations, in particular those studying part time or less.
