“I  grew up in rural Northeastern Oregon, and from an early age I took a strong interest in all things mechanical.  When I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, my answer was “a Robot.”  Unfortunately, even with years of practice, I never did become successful as a robot. However, all was not lost, as I did manage to learn a great deal about how things work. I spent most of my childhood making machines out of Legos, and taking apart machines other people made to see how they worked. I also had a strong interest in both skeletons and insects, as they are extremely mechanical, nature’s own robots.”
