Known for his nostalgic video game-inspired builds, Wes Swain grew up watching his grandfather work as a gunsmith. Wes learned electronics and technology over a series of jobs, starting with four years as an aviation electronics specialist in the US Navy. These days, Wes is passionate about nerd culture, making things, and fatherhood. His YouTube channel, Geeksmithing, blends ‘80s nostalgia with the complexities of parenting while paying homage to the lessons Wes learned from his grandfather. Wes also cohosts a podcast, Making Geeks, where he discusses his passions with other like-minded makers.
