What I do

I have more than 6 years' experience building hardware/software. Below is a quick overview of my main technical skill sets and technologies I use. Want to find out more about my experience? Check out my online resume and project portfolio.

Electrical Engineering

Electronics is my focus. I started soldering my own circuits at just 9 years of age! Nowadays I enjoy prototyping custom PCBs (Printed Circuit Boards) and using ICs (Integrated Circuits) in my projects.

Radio Communications

Back in 2018 I started working with the Amateur Radio Relay Group.inc who runs a large/technical amateur radio repeater system here in Oregon. I'm now one of the lead technicians and an active board member.

Network Engineering

I have a lot of experience with Ubiquity networking equipment and Windows Server 2019 Edition. I run my own server from home to handle audio/video streaming, file storage .ect.

Embedded Systems

I have worked with embedded systems like Arduino and Raspberry Pi for years. I also have some experience with commercial PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers).

YouTube

I started YouTube back in 2013 and have gained a following of over 1000 subscribers. I create videos about my projects and explain in depth about how they function and the steps it took to create them.

Python

Python is the main language I program in. I have lots of experience with creating bots for the Discord platform. I also have lots of interfacing with APIs and telemetry systems.

Web Development

I have experience creating in HTML5 and CSS. I have integrated PHP web dashboards into some of my projects. I am currently in the process of learning JavaScript. This website was also created by me.

CAD (Computer Aided Design)

I joined the 3D printing community around 2018 when I built my own home built 3D printer. I enjoy making models in my 3D design software Fusion360 however, I have a limited amount of experience with Fusion360 and am still learning.
