The concept behind my blog, WeekendEngineer
Since we all live such busy lives I find that most of my free time is on the weekends and a lot of the projects tie into the engineering theme. I wanted to have a place where I can log and share all the useful tips and tricks that I have found from both my personal life and from others. With some projects getting more involved I found myself looking up more information; a lot of it came from blogs or forums.
A little about myself
I grew up and still live in New York, about 50 miles north of the city and came from hands-on and technically skilled parents. From a young age I was always helping my Dad work on our cars and fixing up the house. This is where I give credit to my passion of working with my hands. I picked up electronics and programming from him also with him being an Electrical Engineer and worked as an IT Architect. I had the thought process and everyone always told me / thought that I was going to become an engineer.
Today I enjoy working on my cars, programming with my RaspberryPi’s, Cooking, and many other hobbies.
Education / Honors
I graduated from SUNY Stony Brook as a Mechanical Engineer and also have had some basic electronic and programming classes. I try to continue learning as much as I can by reading other people’s blogs and literature on subjects that interest me.
I am also an Eagle Scout and am proud to say that. During the process and years I have learned so much about ways of thinking and making sure that I am prepared for almost whatever come my way!
At the end of the day if I am able to help one person, or show someone something new then I can call this a success. I hope to make it seem like even the most involved projects can become simple once you think about it clearly and take you time learning!
