Instructor Biography:

Mike is primarily an electrical engineer focusing on hardware development (circuit board design) and product development. He also built this shredder using a combination of mechanics, electronics, woodworking, welding, metalworking, and laser cutting. Mike built this shredder in an attempt to bring attention to the growing global epidemic of marine plastic pollution, and to help reduce our impact by encouraging plastic upcycling and diy recycling. So far Mike has made several pieces of art using the shredded plastic produced by this shredder.
