Re: It was obvious that I would be an engineer

What's really funny is when you put something back together and there are still leftover parts, but it still works. Clearly there was unneccesary cost added to the product in that case :)

Engineer or artist?

When one of my designs works well, I consider it a work of art.  I am driven by the same creative urges that drives a composer, painter, or author.  In fact, in addition to doing design work, I am also writing and photographing.  It is all the same, creating something out of raw building blocks.

I was definitely a born engineer. When I was very little, my father built an addition on to the master bedroom, and I got to play with leftover electrical plugs and sockets. Wirelessly-powered wireless music streaming devices had been around for a few decades. I built one, and that project really got me started.
