About

I grew up in Southern Oregon, an outdoor-lover’s paradise. However, that was mostly lost on me, because I prefer to be indoors working on a computer or playing with electronics. Although I spend most of my free time on engineering projects, I also like to lift weights, watch cartoons, and eat Little Caesar’s pizza.
