I am an Electronics Engineer who currently works in the Automotive Industry. I learned about the beauty of electronics when I was about 10 years old when my father gave me my first toy train set (circle around the Christmas tree). By the time I was 16, I had an 2 main line L shape (8x4 with a 4x4 next to it) and a full control panel with LED signal system. Now that I'm out of college, set in a career, married, and have a house, it's time to get back to the start of things.

I am a High School Football Official (which is the source of the train money), and enjoy "tinkering"
