My girlfriend lovingly refers to me as a "tinkerer” because I spend my free time designing and building electronic circuits. I also have a Printrbot 3D printer and enjoy creating objects layer-by-layer. I love microcontrollers and writing code (and learning new programming languages) and have many hobby projects that take advantage of that. I have more ideas than time so I’m always switching between projects. I love taking a project from an idea, to a design, to a physical product. Nothing beats having a functional device that you've worked on from start to finish.
I graduated with an electrical engineering degree from the Pennsylvania State University. I am now an employee at Hughes Network Systems working in the hardware division creating and testing new designs for broadband satellite modems.
