About Dave

Howdy!  Welcome to my site dedicated to electronics, education, Astronomy, science projects and Chinese punk rock!  I’m from Austin originally but lived in China for 8 years working in advertising, film and music.  Most recently, well, for the past 10 years I’ve been teaching Physics, Astronomy and sometimes Robotics at Anderson high school.  If you have any questions about Tesla coils, 555 timer circuits, laser holograms or Chinese punk rock, please email dave@texasdavid.com and I’ll help out as much as I can.


Oh! If you’re here looking for my book, “Inseparable – the memoirs of an American and the story of Chinese punk rock” please visit the book page here and please be sure and like the Facebook fan page of the book.  We are trying to support Half the Sky, a Chinese children’s orphanage, with the proceeds from books sales and other music related events.  Since 2012 we have earned over $5000 for them, help me do more this year!!
