Biographie de l'auteur
J-D is an electronics hobbyist, builder, and relentlesstinkerer. As a child, he took apart everything he owned to figure out how itworked. Since then he has built many different projects ranging from anelectric fishing pole to a remote-controlled lawn mower, which was featured onthe cover of MAKE magazine in April 2010. Having worked as a builder doingcarpentry, plumbing, and electrical work for 8 years, his knowledge is founded in real world experience rather thantext-book recitation. In addition to building robots and remote controlled toys, he enjoys automating everyday tasks, blinking LEDs, designing and etching PCBs, and lots of random things in between. Much of his time has been spentresearching, building, and testing various motor-controllers to make his botsmove. As a self-proclaimed -poor man's roboticist, he will always try to findthe cheapest way to do something - usually by building it himself. J-D graduated from the University of Alabama in Birminghamwith a degree in Business Management. He currently lives in Birmingham, Alabamawith his beautiful wife Melissa and their growing flock of animals.
