About Me

I’m a hobby enthusiast who has begun to love and understand electronics in a way that has opened my mind to countless possibilities! In the real world, I work as a professional electrical supply distributor and I am a husband and now have a 9 month old son. In the modding world, I am a former Moderator to the now defunct “Made by Bacteria” forums and currently serve as a topic moderator on the Mod Retro forums.  I’ve been a part of the Console Modding community for over 6 years now and in that time have learned a variety of skills that have helped improve my creations throughout the years, most notably; CNC Machining, 3D Printing and 3D CAD Modeling being the biggest assets learned. “Bitten by the electronics bug” some might say, I strive to make every new project I do to an improvement to what I might have done prior.

Over the years I’ve dabbed in a lot of different hobbies and occupations. I always have to be doing something creative or cognitive, whether it be working on a new mod, playing guitar or PC Gaming to my favorite shooters.  (RAGE had me in a death grip for awhile!)

I got married to my wonderful wife Amanda in June 2010 and we bought our first house together in September 2010 and when your house is 150 years old, there are no shortages of projects to do.

But I could and probably will go on and on about me in future posts as I’m sure you’ll get to know me quite well if you keep up with them. But that’s really the reason why I started up my own site because even though I’m a high up member of one of the fastest growing modding hobby forums, it’s quite easy to get lost in the clutter and really, I’d like to keep better track of my projects, void of content chaos. Plus I’ll be able to speak my mind on any topic I like without having to fit within the confines of a topic category or post.  Freedom to speak my mind in my own little cell of the web is something I’ve been wanting for awhile. What will come of it, who knows, but as long as I’ve got interesting things to talk about, I don’t see why I shouldn’t get a comment or two!

    Hi, Downing – saw your comments on Hack A Day. We’ve opened up a hackerspace in Milford called TekArts – http://TekArts.com and TekArts group on Facebook. Subscribe to the newsletter at: http://eepurl.com/iMB6n or check out our projects on our new TekWiki: http://tekarts.wikispaces.com/. Would be great if you could visit sometime for open house (weekly on Sundays now, 4-8 PM).
