The ‘fruit – now with more ‘george’

George Graves

Adafruit is excited to introduce George Graves as the newest member of our technical staff.  George has been recording and archiving our live “Ask an Engineer” video chats each week (Saturday night at 10 pm EST), and we’ve officially brought him on-board to help out.  We’re excited to be working with George and expect great things from him in the future.

We asked George what got him interested in electronics: “When I was a kid, I’d take things apart, and then save all the little bits and pieces.  But the electronics were always a bit of a mystery to me.  I understood the basics, but never the details.”  He continues, “A few years ago, I dove in head first.  I was working on something that I eventually wanted to become a product to sell,  so I started to design my first PCB layout.  That’s when I got hooked, that’s when I fell in love.”

George’s comes to us with a unique skill set – he’s a video editor.  So we’re looking forward to taking advantage of George’s talents.  Welcome aboard George!



Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote

  4. Hi George,

    Nice to put a face to the name. Thanks for recording the videos, I was able to watch a few that I missed.
