Welcome Mike Stone to the Adafruit Support team!

Hi everybody! This is Mike Stone. Please feel free to call me Mike in the forums.

I’m a geek of diverse history: I trained as a draftsman just before CAD made that trade obsolete, learned CAD, then became a computer programmer, actor, dancer, street mime, and stagehand, with occasional gigs working in machine shops. I’ve run industrial CNC machinery, written back-end software for web-based businesses, run spotlights for KISS and Les Miserables, run roller coasters, and robbed trains.

On the electronics side, I think microcontrollers are way cool, but my true love is for analog circuits. It’s an area where individual Makers have significant advantages over corporations that crank products out by the thousand. Closely related to that is my fascination with construction techniques. It’s amazing how many options are available when you stop thinking fully-routed PCBs are the ‘right’ way to do it.

Stop in the forums and say hi to Mike!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
