Former NASA and Apple engineer. Current MNther and friend of science.

Answers to some common questions:

1) I studied Mechanical Engineering in School. I did my undergrad at BYU and Masters at USC.
2) I worked for NASA JPL for 9 years, 7 of which were working on the Curiosity Rover (I made a video about it you should def totes watch cause it's probably my favorite of all my videos). Then I created Digital Dudz (made some videos about this too) and eventually sold it after 2 years. Then I worked for Apple in their Special Projects Group doing Product Design as a Mechanical Engineer for 5 years. As of 2019, I just make my monthly MNthe videos.
3) Link to free and therefore substandard build plans for my custom workbench can be found below.
4) I made a 30 Day Creative Engineering Class that teaches my end to end engineering process so you can make stuff too! Check it out here-

  • As a laboratory scientist with autism, this is the most tearful heartwarming video I have ever seen especially presenting your son in such a beautiful loving way without devalue for who he is and not making it about the parents. Parents like you are the best. Keep it up.

  • Some of my best friends have special needs. One has CP and is really just a great and happy person. The other is somewhere on the autism spectrum. His main “issue” is he can be a bit hyper or crazy without his meds, but otherwise is just a total normal and cool guy. People with special needs are really some of the coolest people 😎❤️

  • The charity that this video is supporting is one that supports the prevention of autism. AKA eugenics. They also support ABA which is the equivalent of conversion therapy for autistic people. Supporting this charity will do real, actual harm to autistic people. Do not support this charity, and please instead support an advocacy group like The Autistic Self Advocacy Network.

  • This takes so much to do thank you so much for doing this, as a person with multiple learning and mental health difficulties it means a lot for someone to share this stuff. We need to support everyone especially those with difficulties that they can't control be patient and understanding it might be hard but coming from someone with these problems that has been bullied, teased, made fun of and generally struggled everyday just talking to us helps so much and helps make us feel like we aren't a freak or an outsider so please chose to spread kindness not negativity the world doesn't need any more.

  • Mark, dude. I’m glad u are protective about your son being in the videos, but hear me out. I feel like he should have as much fun as the other kids in the videos and be apart of a great thing.... Edit: now I see that why you don’t have him with everybody bc he just sits there and just does nothing... no offense.
