Currently an undergraduate college student in the United States, I am primarily a lifelong electronics enthusiast, hobbyist, and power user – among other things. I have been a PC user since I was 4 years old, and a PC owner since I was 8 years old. I have been an iOS user since late 2007 when I got the first generation iPod touch, and as of September 2016, I am technically a *former* Android user since late 2011.
I first learned how to upgrade both hardware and software on desktop computers in 2009 when I upgraded my first computer to Windows Vista. I then had to buy a new computer in 2011 when my old PC could no longer handle editing HD video. I still use this computer to this day, albeit in a heavily upgraded form – the HP Pavilion h8-1070t.
During the summer of 2016, I completed an internship as a Cyber Security Engineer, or according to the old terminology, as an Information Assurance Engineer. I am looking forward to going back for another round of this internship during the summer of 2017.
I know several programming languages, such as Java, C, LC3 Assembly, TI-BASIC, and MATLAB, if that counts. A current goal of mine is to learn Python, a language that I have used a bit for college physics but never have gone too in depth with.
I have been an automotive enthusiast since sometime in 2012 when I began to investigate cars in depth as I learned how to drive.
Some of my other hobbies and interests include numismatics, genealogy, audio systems, running, occasional woodworking, PC gaming, and the collective computer, smartphone, and tablet market.
