Have you ever watched Martin on YouTube or listened to Chris on The Amp Hour?

Not yet, though met Chris at CLE Mini Maker Faire.

What kind of work do you do?

Various engineering, electrical, mechanical hardware, and software, predominantly for Linux, with bits on microcontrollers...

What's your favorite thing about electronics?

Parts scavenging / reusability. Tearing apart consumer electronics and stealing parts that would cost a mint when ordered new (switches, pots, sensors, driver IC's, and power transistors most commonly). It's one thing to have fun learning what the design engineers were thinking, but when you also end up with a pile of parts aching to be hacked together, who could ask for more!

Introduction

As someone with a 'fat' personality, my hands are always busy trying something new! Have always been a sucker for automatic motion control, and machine vision, and especially robotics!
