Hi, I’m Michael, I am the Managing Video Director here at iFixit! I joined iFixit way back in 2009 as a customer support person and soon shifted gears, putting to work my nearly 15 years of experience in video production by helping start the iFixit YouTube channel.
Since then, I’ve interviewed tons of fixers, worked with lots of great people, taken apart hundreds of devices—and fixed just as many!
Education and Experience
After getting my BA in Cinema Studies at San Francisco State University, I spent several years in the Bay Area working on a variety of short films, documentaries, and experimental projects. In between film projects I worked at CNET Networks as a lab technician where I tested a variety of DSLR cameras, monitors, and printers for review on the site.
I moved to Los Angeles shortly after and started working with a full-service production house where I worked in every aspect of film production, for a variety of corporate clinics including the Westfield group and MTV.
I joined iFixit in 2009 as a Customer Support person, providing technical support to customers during their repairs, and then quickly pivoted to the creation of the iFixit YouTube channel. My very first video for iFixit was a teardown for the original ++Xbox Kinect++
More About Me
When I am not at work you can find me most likely at home, with my wife, my 3-year-old daughter, my fat cat, and my lone surviving sea monkey.

"Display is detecting touch input without anything happening?" için yanıtThis happens a lot when the cable is damaged during the repair, check to see if your cable has been pinched or damaged. If you don’t see anything you might have a defective display. I'd suggest getting a replacement display assembly from the place you bought yours.
"Why does my iPod say very low Battery?" için yanıtHi Mallory Assuming that your new battery is good and is connected properly you may need to put your iPod into disk mode, https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201544 , then connect it to a wall charger. This can sometimes fix this issue. If it doesn't you may want to double check the batteries connection just to make sure it is seated properly.
