Electrical Engineer, Teacher, Entrepreneur and Author
With over 30 years in various technical fields and 20 years in industrial automation, I will present useful content to people interested in manufacturing, controls, automation and custom machinery. I have been teaching automation topics since 2013 in a classroom setting, this is my first foray into online courses.I have published several books, most recently one on PLC programming. My first courses published here cover material from that book. Another book, published in 2013 is very broad in scope; I intend to cover much of the material presented in that book in more detail, including machine vision, pneumatics, communications and CAD.In March of 2020 my training facility in Tennessee was destroyed by a tornado. There were various labs including a “mini-factory” that I used to teach hands-on topics and programming; with this event and the pandemic which soon followed, I have decided to transition to online methods of teaching.
