Overview:

Gerry has been experimenting with electronics and Robotics from the time he was 8 years old. Like many of us, he was the kid that took everything apart to learn how things worked. As he grew up he developed a great passion for electronics and now after his post secondary education, and gaining valuable work experience; he still spends most of his off time continuing to study and learn various Technologies both new and old. With his love to share and help other electronics hobbyists, Gerry shares his projects with the world through his Website and YouTube channel. His past experience in Video Production allows him to produce in depth Instructional Videos to acompany his tutorials.

Gerry loves to explain things in Layman terms and sees no need to make things overly complicated.

He also believes that Khan Academy is the way to go." https://www.khanacademy.org/
