About me

I have been an electronics tinkerer for 15 years with a background in microcontroller technology. I find that understanding something is one of the most amazing accomplishments of all times. In real life I am a theoretical physicist, and that involves moving to different countries and meeting a lot of different people with cool ideas.

Because of my travels I had to stop my electronics hobby for a few years, and I have only recently come back into the field. While trying to re-acquaint myself with the basic concepts I quickly realized two things: first, there are many many excellent resources online. And second, I don't have the time to read them all.

With a job, a family, and other commitments in life, I am sure this is a point that many amongst you share.

With Friendlywire I want to fill that gap. Have enough time for your loved ones, your job, but also enjoy discovering the world of electronics in friendly-sized, digestible video portions that don't overwhelm but still don't omit any important details.
