I grew up loving sci-fi. I worshipped Star Trek, Carl Sagen, Doug Adams, Blade Runner, and all the other delicious cyberpunk hallmarks. When I was a kid, it only made sense to me that I would one day have a robot army and the mental capacity to invent every silly little gizmo I thought of… because I was capable of envisioning them, of course.
One sad day I realized that I was bad at math… and in fact hated working with numbers, so I resolved this disappointment by going down the route of art and design. I’m pretty good at making just about anything visual in any medium, but no matter how many illustrations of Mucha-esque femme-bots I create, the images will never be the robot army I’ve always wanted.
I spent too much of my life believing that I needed to be an engineer or some mathematician in order to tinker with electronics. Eventually I crossed paths with the Ardunio and the world changed. I suppose this blog is here to map my progress as I climb from relative cluelessness into the realm of awesome, as well as to help anyone else out there who has the same desire.
