I'm a failer - which isn't to be confused with being a failure. These words aren't synonymous - quite the opposite, I'd say. Being a failer is at the core of being successful. Each time you try something and fail, you learn. And so long as you pick yourself up and move forward with your new little nugget of information, you'll continue to make progress towards success.
But a failure? That's the inability to learn, grow, and progress. The lack of drive to try again and again until you get it right. The unwillingness to experiment and assume risk. Being a failure will never lead to success in whatever it is you're doing.
You know the saying - when the going gets tough, the tough make some more coffee and settle in for another seven hours of trying to figure out how the hell they're going to make this work. Or... something like that.
The list of things I've tried and failed is much, much longer than the list of everything I've managed to succeed in creating. And honestly? I wouldn't have it any other way. Every time I fail, I learn something new. I'm in a constant state of learning and making, and there really isn't anything I love more. I have this insatiable drive to consume information and create as much as possible.
This website is my collection of things that started as nothing, took a lot of trying, failing, and learning, and eventually resulted in something I'm proud of. There's a nice mix of creations - some video, a few photos, Strahlen, and some useful 3D printed items.
I hope you enjoy what I've created. I've had a hell of a time making all of it. Shoot me an email if you want to chat about what I've done, am doing, or would like to do. Maybe we can make something together.
