All though my schooling, I was called "Inspector Gadget"....

I guess it started when at 15 months old, my parents tell of finding me sitting on the kitchen floor taking the toaster apart.  My dad says that I took it completely apart and then proceeded to put it back together.  Nothing electrical or mechanical was safe around me.  I had every Radio Shack kit sold.  My kits went everywhere with me.  Electronic education toys were just being introduced. . . .and I just had to have one as soon as it was put on the market.  By the way, I still have all of them. . . most in working order.

At 12 years old, I was set before a computer. . .a Franklin, which was a x-version of the Apple.  A wonderful relationship was formed that is still as exciting today as it was that first time.  My favorite computers are still Apples. .  .but I do condone, build and maintain pc platforms.

As part of my fascination with gadgets, I enjoy wiring and running home theatre systems.  The more complex, the better I like it.  My artistic sensibilities are stimulated by the clarity of sound and picture of high-end systems.

Now days, I put together and take apart stages.....and am loving it
