*Skills and Interests of mine*
I have a mix of skills and interests. I like everything from computer technology, to machinery, nature, art, and music. I always like to expand my knowledge in my interests. I am very creative and a good self learner. A more detailed description includes:
- I enjoy computers, both hardware and software. I am experienced in all windows platforms, and Linux distributions Debain and Redhat. I like terminal and sometime prefer it to a GUI because of command switches and architecture. I am great with computer upgrades and replacing hardware. I enjoy soldering and learning circuitry.
- I like to take things apart and find out how they work. I am also very good at combining components to make my own devices and equipment. I like to invent, I have a scrap book full of ideas and someday hope to patent some of them.
- I enjoy outdoor activities as much as I can. I like fishing both fresh and salt water, mostly for mackerel and trout. I enjoy stopping at rivers along side of the road and any other location I haven't been to before. I like to hunt, mostly small game such as rabbits and pheasants. I am a member of the Hants County Pistol Club and enjoy shooting at ranges, and during off season I keep my skills up skeet shooting. I am skilled in the woods and enjoy camping as well. These may not be "computer" skills but I believe they are very important traits to succeed in the industry because of contrast and character.
- I'm also skilled in graphics design and drawing. Its something I don't do so much of anymore but I will occasionally sit back with Adobe or a pen and a piece of paper, for hours until I get something I like. I enjoy monochrome or 3 color sketches and photo editing. I sometimes like to implement these in simple webpage's
