  • Adafruit Industries
    • Easily recognizable just about anywhere with her bright pink died hair, Limor Fried runs one of the best hobbyist electronics suppliers out there along with an amazing educational section covering just about every aspect of electronics.  Many times I have turned to their stellar tutorials to help me get a prof-of-concept working in a hurry or fill in some gaps in my understanding of a particular chip’s registers without searching through dry datasheets.
  • The Amp Hour Podcast
    • What happens when you take two crazy professional electrical engineers from two different hemispheres and give them a hour long weekly podcast  to talk about whatever comes to mind?  That would be “The Amp Hour Podcast”.  Dave Jones and Chris Gammell have  rather interesting style of conversation completely void of any type of structure or scripting.  It’s an acquired taste for sure.  It’s standard bench listening material for me at work regardless of how much it confuses my coworkers.
  • Cirque du Soleil & Bellagio Hotel and Casino
    • My “day job” is working as an audio technician with with the Cirque du Soleil show “O” at the Bellagio Hotel & Casino.  I am fortunate enough that the Bellagio has a program that will pay an employee’s educational expenses as long as there is a connection to their position and they receive high marks.
  • College of Southern Nevada, Electronic Engineering Technology
    • I’m currently pursuing an associate EET degree at CSN.  It’s going to be a long road being that I can only take one or two classes at a time, but I’ll get there eventually.  Though the program is small compared to some four year programs, the professors show a genuine interest in their student’s future success.
