Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hi, I'm David! I'm from Cambridge, OH, and am glad to be teaching! Apologies for the awkward profile pic - had my passport picture on hand while I was registering to teach courses.

I've always enjoyed going on the internet and learning new skills. I've taught myself lock picking, 3D Modeling, 3D Scanning, Auto Repair, Networking basics, Juggling, and fire building over the past few years. I love learning odd skills, and am so excited to teach what I know!
