Hey, It's me Destin and welcome to SmarterEveryDay.com
I'm a Husband, a Father, and and full time Engineer. Several years ago I made a video to show my friends how to light a bonfire with rockets. They enjoyed my teaching style so I kept making videos. My goals were simple.
1. Get Smarter Every Day myself. I explore the world every day.
2. Share what I learn with the world. I want people to see the world differently.
3. Educate my children by securing their college fund.
I explore the world using science. That's pretty much all there is to it. Watch 2 videos. If you learn something awesome, feel free to subscribe to the YouTube channel.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
P.S. I want to be an Astronaut, and am working towards being worthy.
Appearances and Stuff
Occasionally people feel the need to invite an Engineer from Alabama to their meetings/convention/stuff. I'm happy to fill the "guy with a Southern accent who also happens to help people look at the world differently on YouTube" void in their lives. Here are some examples of me going places and doing things. I've also given an incredible number of presentations, and written papers (including International Policy agreements on Rocket Testing) for my real job as an Engineer... but I won't get into that here. Here are some of my non "real job" appearances.
"Sunrise" Australia. I was told that this was the top morning show in Australia....Not sure though.
I did a pilot for National Geographic. I decided not to go to series because of the time requirements.
Ford was kind enough to invite me to do a piece with the contestants on American Idol.
