Professional polymath and extractor of knowledge.
As soon as I was old enough to lift a wrench, my father began bringing home equipment from work for me to take apart. I learned how machines work, and more importantly, how they ought to work.
Throughout my childhood, I have always fiddled with things. As I have now grown up, I am finally able to put my efforts toward a more productive use and finish something:) I have my advanced qualification in ham radio, with a call sign of VE3HOP.
