Hi everyone, what I am trying to do here is to let out some of the tricks that I have learned over the years from working in all the departments at an engineering factory. I am currently self employed and I take on various projects for people from minor repairs on all sorts of things to outdoor and garden work including building. I also do writing and websites so please go look at my website www.mkeenenterprises.co.uk. I also make videos from time to time so feel free to subscribe to my channel on Youtube.com . I am also on twitter so feel free to follow me there, it is also a good place to find me if there is something that you want to talk about.
Iam the founder of The Guerilla Guide to Music Technology which is my blog and it is all about a subject that is very close to my heart, music tech. You may have noticed alot of my articles on infobarrel are music tech related but theres lots of cool stuff on the blog that is not talked about here on infobarrel so go check it out.
