I like working with both hardware and software, so projects with a combination of the two are my favorite. Two projects I've most enjoyed are a home-built arcade machine and a touch screen computer embedded in the dash of my car.
I got my start with computers doing computer repair, and eventually moved into IT, working as a systems administrator. I did some light scripting and programming for custom administration tools, and assumed that I would attend college and then continue to work as a systems administrator/engineer. However, I decided after a few classes at CSU Chico that programming was more interesting than resetting people's passwords every day (not that I didn't enjoy building out servers and installing the occasional fiber-optic line).
I am also a gamer, as reflected by several of my projects. I enjoy technically critiquing and tweaking the games I play just about as much as I enjoy playing the games themselves.
