My name is Daniel Joannis. I am a student at the Memorial University of Newfoundland, in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada, half-way through my studies in Electrical Engineering.
Previously, I completed a 3 year career program at Heritage College in Gatineau, Québec, earning a DEC and the program award in Electronics Technologies.
I have been fascinated with electronics since a young age. I played with many electronics kits, similar to this one, and spent uncountable hours discovering computers and learning how they function. I was lucky to be in the presence of people who had plenty of old hardware to give away, and if it weren’t for them I would not be so familiar with computers as I am now.
As high school came to its end, I knew that I would want a future in electronic technology. By this time I had been working at a computer store for around a year and had gained significant knowledge on computers, and now people. My comfort level with other electronic devices was much higher, and I knew I would be successful if I continued in electronics.
Those three years in college were life changing. The skills I’ve gathered have found me new hobbies, new ways to waste less, and new ways to create solutions for myself that would otherwise be very costly. Creating and re-purposing electronics has become an important part of my life, and I only expect this to multiply. These are the things that made me realize I wanted to pursue my studies in University.
On this website you will find music, projects, any piece of work I have done that I feel should be shared with other people.
Many of the projects on my site follow a forward, “I’m going to do this”, approach. Sometimes, too much time is wasted thinking about doing something, or worrying about the details of the execution. It is easy to scare yourself away from a subject with which you are not familiar. What is important is to not let this uncertainty limit you – we can never, and will never, know everything about something. We can simply do our best and learn from it.
All failure leads to new opportunities. Don’t stop doing.
