I am a local inventor located in Coralville, Iowa USA. I like to tinker like everyone else, every now and then something I build for myself has value for others. I like to take these ideas to market either through Tindie or Kickstarter and see if there's a real market for the idea.
I'm a trained Mechanical Engineer. I've found that almost everything I design these days has some sort of circuit board and software driving it. So my interests have moved from just designing physical parts to building and designing systems.
