Im your typical sterotypical nerdy enigneer no need to explain much there. However, I do have a love for Anime and (maybe even more) Anime soundtracks and scores. Im a bit of a composer and I play violin and piano.
Besides watching Anime I like doing Home Video & Sound Editing and make DVDs for everthing.
I build my own kites. Most have no spars/ribs and are "ram-air" designed. I made a 21 foot Octopus this year and a 5 feet x 10 feet Parafoil. I do all the design work in AutoCad.
I compose music (classical) mostly Strings and Piano kinda stuff; but not very often as i dont get "inspired" as often as your normal composers/artists do.
I like to cook and have repeated "show-downs" with my friends. Unfortunatly for me I usually lose; probably because most of my dishes are Meat & Potatoes! =)
For you gamers out there you'll catch me playing (under the same name) SupCom and ET: Wolfenstein.
Fly Fishing & Fly Tying; whenever I get the chance. (Which it seems is down to just a few days a year now, sniff sniff.)
Oh and 1 more thing. Not really a hobby but I collect vintage Atari 2600 cartridges. Theres over 900 of them and I'm around the 300's right now. What can I say, I'm an 80's kid.
