I, Bill Nye, in spite of having a name "slightly" similar to the Science Guy, does not know much about making smoke come out of oversized test tubes. Rather, I started in Electrical Engineering as an analog integrated circuit designer, graduated with a Ph.D. in the area of CAD for IC design at Berkeley, had a fun career in CAD software development working at Cadence Design Systems for 10 years and then at PDF Solutions for 4 years. I ended up getting a Master's in Multimedia from Cal State East Bay in 2003 and switching to multimedia and digital graphics, where I use my hardware skills and software skills in many programming languages to pull game and artistic projects together.
