I am former NASA Mechanical Engineer turned YouTuber Mark Rober. I've been making videos for 9 years and just passed 10M subs. AMA!
Hello, I'm Mark Rober. I have a YouTube channel where I build stuff and come up with new ideas. I recently cofounded #TeamTrees with Mr. Beast. My passion is getting people (especially the young folk) stoked about Science and Engineering. AMA!

tl;dr of me:
-I have a Masters in Mechanical Engineering. I worked at NASA for 9 years (7 of which were spent on the Curiosity Rover). After that I worked for Apple for 4 years doing Product Design in their Special Projects Group (I just quit to do YouTube full time 6 months ago).
-Some highlights for me this year were: + Co-founded TeamTrees with Mr. Beast + Went from 3M to 10M subscribers on YouTube and passed 1B views (I make 1 vid/month) + Announced a show I'm making with Jimmy Kimmel that will air on Discovery where we prank people with cool contraptions that violate social norms
EDIT- Ok. After 2 hours I'm gonna sign off for a bit! I will check back later and if there are any questions that have bubbled to the top I will try and address them. That was fun and different for me!! You guys are the best!
