Started learning computers in 1985 on an 8086 Tandy 1000, complete with dual 5.25" floppies and whopping 640kB RAM upgrade. Spent countless hours typing in code from Compute! magazine. Began experimenting with electronics around this time also. While other kids were riding big-wheels and jumping in mud puddles, I was handed the wiring harness from a van, with all the lights, buzzer, switches, ignition, etc. Have loved both computers and electronics ever since. Today I repair industrial electronics full-time and teach CS/EE part-time at a local college. I like to code in C, Python, and Assembler, and build electronic devices from scratch utilizing PIC microcontrollers in the analog, digital, and RF domains. One patent pending.
