Hello Lightning Tamers!
I'm currently writing and preparing for Chapter 4 of the Intro to Plasma Series: Starting your plasma Journey!
Thought I'd share with you some philosophical aspects that I've used to overcome the negatives in my life, but have appeared in my pursuit of plasma art and education.

Hello Lighting Tamers!
For those of you who couldn't make the lecture! Fear not, for I have recorded the entire talk, including the Q&A at the end. This lecture is not a replacement for watching the series and discussion with the plasma community, but if you want to hear my story and a quick overview on creating a vessel for plasma and testing the waters by working with collaborators then have at it. You might find yourself wanting to watch the Series!
You know I feel really good about this talk. I don't do them very often, and it's good to finally be able to get questions beyond the "How do you do plasma?". I believe the Intro to plasma series with GEEX has definitely helped me organize and share some fundamental thoughts on plasma, in which 4 years ago would have been impossible for me to imagine explaining or even talk about.
Thank you for watching,
