Neil’s dad handed him a hammer to keep him quiet when he was 4. It didn’t work, but it did start a lifelong love of making, fixing and modifying things. He works in wood and metal as a hobby and in electronics and software professionally. He enjoys 3D printing, robotics, photography, home renovation, reading and learning new skills. For the last year or so Neil has been an active member of Kwartzlab where he tries valiantly, if not always successfully, to reign in the chaos in the lab’s woodworking and metal shop.
Neil is an engineer who works as an independent consultant out of Waterloo. He is married and has 3 sons.
