Since early childhood I have been a tinkerer who is constantly finding ways to improve stuff; call it an illness, but rarely is a design 'good enough' for me to use as is. There have been too many pumpkin launchers that don't shoot far enough, rc airplanes that aren't fast enough, drones not smart enough, cars that are too hard to work on, things that break too easily, etc... As a result, I pursued an education in engineering, and have constantly embraced hobbies that expand on my tinkering skills (computers, networking, rc aircraft, cars, drones, robotics, IOT, woodworking, machining...). 3d printing is one of the latest hobbies I have taken on, and it has brought with it a paradigm shift in the stuff I'm learning and capable of doing.
Of course none of this would be possible without tons of help from generous members of forum like these, who share their insights, designs, advice, and ideas with like minded individuals. It's this valuable resource that has provided me with the tools to succeed in my hobby adventures. In return, I feel it is my duty to give back to the community by sharing my ideas, designs, and advice with fellow tinkerers.
