I’m Danny Rankin- a 1st year masters student in the ATLAS Institute’s Creative Technologies and Design program. Before starting my Masters, I worked as a software instructor for Apple- I have 6 years experience teaching software, specifically video editing with Final Cut Pro, audio engineering with Logic Pro, and design in Adobe Illustrator. I’m also an experienced painter and woodworker, and have some skills in physical computing (Arduino, Processing, Raspberry Pi), mostly as a result of being the manager of the ATLAS BTU Lab for the past three semesters. I maintain the laser cutter in the lab, so I know a lot about both designing for laser cutting in Rhinoceros, and the actual physical use of the equipment.
I live and work on a local organic farm, so I’m handy with livestock, manual transmissions, power tools, heavy machinery and tedious physical labor.
I have a 3 year old son, so I’m skilled with dad jokes and enduring physical/mental pain.
I’m also an experienced musician (~20 years), if that comes in handy for anyone.
