About Me

I was raised in a household consisting of my parents, 3 siblings, and 1 family computer in the 90's - 2000's. That bulky, slow, beige computer was my introduction to electronics in general. Unfortunately, being the youngest of my family, I was also the scapegoat to all the issues that pc had. Where my parents were tech-illiterate and my siblings were using µTorrent, I had to learn how to fix said computer or be grounded for "downloading viruses from" Ironically, I am now the family computer guy; when they have issues with their computer, they now ask me for my help.

C'est la vie, I suppose.

What I Do

Computer Hobbyist

From overclocking my PC, dual-booting laptops, repairing trashed PCs, or just decorating computers; I like to make a system feel like my own.


I'm always working on something so in the little time I do have, I can be found reading, listening to podcasts, or chatting with friends.


Personally, I love to cook. From Appetizers to Desserts, Veggies to Meats, Baking to Grilling; I'm a jack-of-all-trades cook.


The best way to understand something is to learn the level below it, and what's below all software? Hardware! Repairs, upgrades, or just curiosity; I'll open it up and take a look... I've voided so many warrenties I've lost count.
