My workbench isn’t a whole lot, but it is one of my favorite places to be. I’ve spent a lot of time there tinkering, soldering, building batteries, coming up with ideas, and working hard. It’s a place that I will always want to come back to and it’s the place that lets me keep exhibiting my capabilities as an engineer and creator. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve loved taking things apart and building new things. In high school I was part of an FRC robotics team, and it was one of the most fun experiences in my life. It enhanced my passion for engineering and creating things stronger than any other thing in my life. Because of that, I chose to major in mechanical engineering in college, from which I graduated in 2020. Part way through college I found the awesome hobby of electric skateboarding. It’s a combination of many things that I love, and a hobby that I thoroughly enjoy. I’ve built over 10 boards for myself and for my friends. Every one of them is unique, and I used my workbench to curate their creation.
I’ve started building electric skateboard batteries for people now, and with my spot welder and a ton of knowledge on the subject, I will expand this capability even further. However, electric skateboards are not my final frontier. I really want to move even further into developing robotics and other types of mechatronic devices. Two things I would like to do in the near future are working on FPV racing drones and starting to design and build a six degree of freedom robotic arm.
The robotic arm will require a lot of testing, some custom electronics, and reliable tools to help me achieve my goals and eventually, work my way up to exoskeleton technology. I am never going to stop yearning for higher goals, and I would love to welcome these Keysight tools into my quiver of engineering gadgets. They will help me out greatly by providing accurate, precise, and reliable data to help enhance the success of my projects.
