He has fond childhood memories spending countless hours marveling at the colorful geometric shapes he could generate on the screen of his 1982 Adam Coleco. Nowadays, he finds the same enjoyment helping his kids create similar “works of art” with their Python- programmed robots or in Quill using their Oculus Rift S Virtual Reality system. He is an avid radio-controlled model enthusiast who recently started 3D printing his own aircraft. When he’s not tinkering in his family’s little maker space he enjoys traveling with his family.
