I've got an scientist with extensive background in many fields. As a dad, my joy comes from showing my boys how to fix things instead of buy a new one; In the process they learn how it works. As a hobbyist, I enjoy learning things on regular basis, designing and often making prototypes of all purposes. Having become a dad has made me consider new ways of creating things where fun of use is more so the focus point rather than logical behind the scene aspect of things.
My motto is, "Fix, Reuse, Repeat".
