I’m from Denver. I’ve been programming and playing with electronics since I was 12. I graduated from CU Boulder with my Electrical Engineering degree in 2007 and interned under another SparkFun engineer for 6 months. Now I design products and projects for SparkFun. I always try to incorporate distinct senses into my big project designs.
