I am a maker, writer and entrepreneur from Melbourne, Australia. I have many hobbies including, computer aided design, programming, gaming, robotics and more. I have designed everything from aircraft to rovers, doorknobs and dinosaurs. I also have a well equipped makerspace in my backyard with 3D printers, a laser cutter, mill and all sorts of goodies.
I make YouTube videos, stream, organise and assistive devices for the disabled. My Identical twin Nick and I had the misfortune of being born with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy a life threatening muscle wasting disease. Many of the devices I have helped develop I use every day.
In 2014 I started a makerspace in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, called MESH (Melbourne Eastern Suburbs Hackers). We currently meet once every two weeks at Swinburne’s Wantirna Campus, 369 Stud Road, Wantirna. You can find further information on our website or MeetUp.com page or any social media platform.
I strongly believe in the power of open source software and hardware, anything I design is made available under the GPL-3.0 licence. I started this site to share my designs, everything here will be open source, meaning if you have you own 3D Printer or laser cutter you can make them yourself. Or even improve or modify my designs.
I have a strong belief in the power of technology to make the world a better place for everyone. The world is swiftly becoming a better place (don’t believe the nightly news), as free trade is always a better deal than more explosive ways of dealing with our differences.
Everybody in this world matters equally and all of us have the capacity to do amazing things. Individuals have never been more powerful than we are right now with the sum of human knowledge at our fingertips, trivial global communications and new fabrication technologies such as 3D printing and Laser Cutting.
On the second of October 2018 I lost my twin brother to complications resulting from our Muscular Dystrophy.
