A little bit about myself: Right now I am a second year student at the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology and I am planning on majoring with dual degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. I have always been interested in mechanics and electronics as far back as I can remember and as a kid I can remember taking apart things like cameras and radios to see how they worked. When I was eleven I started taking private classes in electronics and later that year I attended the 1995 International BEAM Robotics Games which I had found out about from my teacher Phil Cross. It was then that I learned about the robotics aspect of electronics and I was hooked. Ever since then I have tinkered around in the area mostly on my own. There have been several people that have helped me out along the way that I would like to meantion, these people include Mark Dalton, Mark Tilden, my dad, and several others. Over the years I have competed in quite a few robotics competitions like the Western Canadian Robot Games in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and the 1998 International BEAM Robotics Games in Lucknow, India. I also help out a lot with robotics workshops in schools around the area. My future plan is to finish college and do research in adaptive robotics.
