Can you design or build something for me?Yes! Absolutely. Although I will mention I have a lot on the go. Depending on the complexity, time required, or budget available, I may or may not be able to help. You can definitely shoot me an email and I will do my best to accomodate. Also if you're just interested in picking my brain, that is great too, I generally respond to all emails.
Do you only do open source projects?No, actually. I have done, and am currently doing work with several companies where the products are not open source. My open source stuff is generally related to my Youtube channel where I want anyone to be able to recreate it at no cost to them. This also means people can improve the parts where I could have done better. If you have something you want made or designs that is proprietary in nature, I am happy to help.
What did you go to school for?I went to McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. I recieved a Bachelor of Technology in Automotive and Vehicle Tech. and then went on to do my M.a.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering. My project involved designing and programming a sensor to detect and diagnose faults in an internal combusion engine using a Neural Network. I never actually went to school for electrical design, and it was something that I had a lot of interest in teaching myself, so I did it. It was one of my better decisions in life.
Why open source?Open source allowed me to get to the point where I am in life now. My electrical and circuit design was all self taught, and most of what I learned was through open source projects that I was able to break down, and learn how they worked. I want to pay it forward, and in doing so I continue to learn more skills each day. I am a very strong advocate of free education and knowledge.
If everything is open source, how do you make money?"I still do projects that generate income that are not on Youtube. For instance, I continue to work with my school in designing labs and equipment that students can use to learn various subjects. However, the point that I want to get to is to be able to design and distribute projects solely on the support of my viewers. I have setup a number of ways my viewers(who can spare it) can contribute monthly to me and my projects.
