My passion is gardening, DIY, mountain biking, photography, electronics and all things mechanical and electrical being an engineer at heart!

I write on a variety of topics on the Maven Coalition network of sites (Owlcation, DenGarden, TurboFuture, ToughNickel, SkyAboveUs and others). Articles cover gardening, power tools (I'm a confessed addict), DIY, electronics, math, physics, programming, health, photography and other miscellaneous and unrelated stuff. You can view them all here:

I'm a qualified engineer with a BSc(Eng) degree in electronics/electrical/control and instrumentation engineering and FETAC certified in industrial automation (mechatronics and pneumatics)

My Facebook group "Talking Tools" is a platform for pros and newbies to talk about tools, share reviews and tips. Novices can ask questions and get help from more experienced members. You can join the group here:
