Bio: Nick Brewer

by Nick Brewer

Welcome to Creative DIY Cultures and Participatory Learning! My name is Nick Brewer and I’ll be the TA for the semester. I am very excited for this year

I’m using this first post as an example of what is possible in these blog posts, so here goes. It is very easy to put in text, video, links, and pictures into each of these posts so go nuts!

I was born and raised in the small town of North Pole, Alaska. After graduating from the University of Alaska Fairbanks with a degree in Broadcast Journalism, I sold everything I could, and with a hockey bag and a few boxes, head off to New York City in the Fall of 2007. Since then I’ve been an Audio Newsgatherer at Fox News Radio, cutting tape on every type of event imaginable and even covering the New York City Comic-Con and Nathan’s Annual 4th of July Hot Dog Eating Contest.

Shameless plug!

I’ve been known to pick up a hobby or two a week and see how things turn out. From learning how to circuit bend electronic toys to building my own work bench, these skills came in handy in the month leading up to Santacon 2009 when I built a seven foot tall robotic Santa Claus costume. The day after Santacon 2009 I began planning for the following year. The idea to build a better robot and film a documentary came in a sleep induced high on a warm summer evening.
