Chairman & Founder
Jim is an uber-DIYer and lifelong maker. A serial entrepreneur, Jim holds several design patents and created TechShop because he needed a place to build his own inventions. Before founding TechShop, Jim was a BattleBots competitor and former full-time Science Advisor on the Discovery Channel’s hit show MythBusters. Jim spends much of his time on-site at TechShop and thoroughly enjoys helping TechShop members with their projects. He also enjoys baking sourdough bread, camping with his family, and dreaming up new project ideas.
