Hi, I'm Brant and I'm the current President of Milwaukee Makerspace.
I grew up in New Port Richey, FL and attended the University of South Florida in Tampa where I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering. I moved to Milwaukee for work and a relationship shortly after graduation. (For the record, I -chose- to move here and no, I'm not crazy.) I found Makerspace in January 2010 after seeing a poster in the back of American Science & Surplus. By day I work as an HVAC designer (CAD drafting, fan, ducts, pumps, pipes, etc.) and by night I'm usually at Makerspace or tinkering with something at home. My interests include almost everything: electronics, mechanisms, learning how things work, gadgets, science fiction and fantasy, and cartoons.
