Hey! My name is Balake and I'm a strong independent redhead that don't need no soul.

At iFixit I am known as "The Car Guy" but was actually hired on as the Repair Researcher. What that means is that I do research, all day, every day. Since I have 7 years experience as an automotive mechanic I am currently looking into bringing more auto repair content to iFixit.

Outside of work I am an avid audiophile, festival goer, noise maker, electronics tinkerer, fixer, builder, and a parent to a cat and dog.
