Since I was two years old…
I’ve been a tinkerer and a maker. My grandparents let me take apart their transistor radio and I had free access to the scrap pile when I visited during the summers. When I was 9, my dad let me dismantle our old TV set (after the capacitors had been drained) just to see what the insides looked like. I’m also [just] old enough that my middle school and high school still had amazing shop classes. Building and fixing things is something I’ve always loved to do and something I wish to share with my kids and the families in my neighborhood.
TinkeringRocks.com is a means to that end. In time, I hope to share fun projects for you to try, and for you to share with your family and friends. Cheers and Happy Tinkering!
I am a father of four boys, a Boy Scout leader, and an avid hiker. When I’m not creating my robot army in my garage, you can find me exploring our national parks and local open spaces. I’ve been a warranty voider for as long as I can remember. My mantra: “What does this button do?”
When I’m in Clark Kent mode, I am an IT manager for an interstate freight broker and a logistics solutions provider based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
