I studied electronics technology throughout high school earning state vocational certifications in many fields of study related to electricity, electronics and various mechanical trades such as welding, print press operation/maintenance, carpentry, drafting and the like. In college I studied electrical engineering specializing in digital electronics and wireless communications technology. While in college I worked at a Hitachi service center repairing and servicing a vast array of electronic, electrical and electromechanical devices. We commonly serviced residential computers, televisions but also industrial and commercial equipment such as factory control systems, factory automation and the like. (My favorite was the 1960s-era German-made vulcanizers used at tire factories!) After college I began studying software application design and web technologies on my own time. I learned numerous programming languages and eventually developed applications ranging from simple websites to custom compiler modifications (GCC) all the way up to massive scale applications such as factory automation software for large multi-national corporations.
