After 20 years as a successful neuroscientist and neuroengineer, I realized that I had become a manager, no longer doing what I love most: making things. I took a two-year sabbatical in 2014-2015, exploring the Maker Movement in Seattle, Ireland, and the San Francisco Bay Area. After that, I decided to close my research lab and move to Ireland. I love hands-on teaching, especially when it involves designing, inventing, making, and fixing things. At Georgia Tech, I won awards from my university and from the University System of Georgia for my approach to motivating students by getting them involved in real-world projects — I wrote a book about my project-based approaches to teaching, "How to Motivate Your Students to Love Learning." My Irish wife, Mairead, and I live in Castleblayney, County Monaghan, and I teach maker workshops all across Ireland. I still do scientific consulting and writing, in addition to all my woodworking, electronics, and coding maker activities.
