My name is Ryan Moriarty. I am a college student attending the University of Montevallo with a minor in Deaf Studies. I became interested in sign language in high school and began teaching myself basic vocabulary. I searched for good online lesson-oriented sign language resources and found a lack there of. I already created vlog type videos on my personal youtube channel and naturally was drawn toward video as a medium of learning, communicating, and sharing information. I started creating these videos in an effort to fill a need that I saw and also teach myself within the process. While I am not as experienced or qualified as say an interpreter, I am constantly growing and looking for ways to improve myself.

Hi, my name is Myles Power, I am originally from Middlesbrough in the north east of England. I have been called a geek by nearly every one I have ever met, including my mother! It probably has something to do with my favourite TV show being Star Trek Enterprise, playing several instruments (but most skilled on the saxophone), and owning multiple sonic screwdrivers. I have always had an interest in science from a young age, I was able to continue this interest by studying Chemistry at University. Whilst at university, I specialised in organic synthesis and also gained an appreciation of Biological Chemistry. I want to share my love of science online by producing home experiment videos in the hope of encouraging the next generation of scientist to try them for themselves.
