Ever since my childhood, I have always enjoyed playing with LEGO bricks, playing with science kits, building model cars, and inventing things. If I could I would still be doing all of that today. Unfortunately we only have so much time and the time I allotted to LEGO bricks has dropped significantly. I attribute my passion for the engineering arts to playing with LEGO bricks and science kits and to my parents constant encouragement and support.
My interests in the engineering field do not pertain to one single discipline or industry. I may have a two degrees in mechanical engineering, but I also have a big interest in electrical engineering. I am fascinated by the automobile but I am also drawn to robotics. My thought is, the more you know, the more you can do. So I try to learn as much as I can about anything and everything.
For a while I enjoyed buying old video game consoles, cleaning them up, on occasion repairing them, and then reselling them on eBay. While I didn't make a whole lot of money doing this, it was fun. I just finished my Master's degree at UCLA and I'm now working as a mechanical engineer designing unmanned vehicles for various applications.
