All my life when I find something I like I get extremely focused and learn everything I can about that thing. I started soldering my own circuits when I was just 9 years old all by myself. Because of this, I have become no normal teenager, gaining skills in anything from electrical engineering and software development to radio frequency/antenna physics. I have a lot of technical interests and am lucky to find great people to give me a chance based on my knowledge and despite my age. Most people describe me as detail-oriented, I like to make sure everything works correctly and get the job done right the first time.
