The Story Behind Brain Wire: A Lifelong Love for DIYing, Electronics and Engineering

Hello fellow electronics enthusiasts, makers, and DIYers! My name is Mitchell, the creator of Brain Wire, a company dedicated to offering curated experiences for makers, DIYers, and engineers. Let me take you through my story, from my early childhood fascination with gadgets to establishing Brain Wire, a top-quality supplier of curated electronics experiences.

My childhood in Michigan was filled with curiosity about how things worked. I would spend hours lost in daydreams, pondering the intricacies of electronics, mechanics, and other technical subjects. “The Way Things Work” by David Macaulay was my go-to book back then. This book ignited my curiosity and led me to explore the science behind everyday objects.

As I grew older, my passion for understanding technology evolved into a career as a full-stack software developer. With almost two decades of experience, my expertise lies in C#, JavaScript, and Artificial Intelligence. My love for technology doesn’t end there, though ā€“ I’m also a licensed amateur radio operator, a hobby that allows me to connect with like-minded individuals worldwide.

My interests in the maker, DIY, science, and technology space span a wide range of topics, such as:

  • 3D Printing, Laser & CNC
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Arduino & Microcontrollers
  • Raspberry Pi
  • Maker Tools
  • IoT & Home Automation
  • Solar, Renewables, Sustainability
  • Autos and EVs
  • Metalwork & Welding
  • Off-grid Living
  • Hydroponics

After moving to Arizona nearly 20 years ago, I found my home in the scenic town of Prescott. It was here that I decided to turn my passion for electronics and engineering into something more tangible. Together with my close friend of over 15 years, I founded Brain Wire, a company that echoes my personal love for the field. Our aim is to deliver an exceptional customer experience while sharing our enthusiasm for all things electronic.
