About me

Wow, you’re reading this, this is actually happening.

My passion is electronics, I love to build and try anything new. When I get a new piece of software or hardware, I always look and try to figure out how it can be improved. I enjoy bending, molding, and modifying things to what I think they should be.

Currently, I’m cooped up in a small apartment and don’t have enough room for a “proper” shop. Instead, I am making due with a desk and a coat closet. As you can probably guess, space restricts most of my projects to being small.

I grew up in Churubusco, Indiana with three brothers. When a toy broke I became super excited because I was finally allowed take it apart. I loved to try and fix anything I could get my hands on. Sometimes I would fix a portable CD player for my cousin, other times I would cannibalize RC planes and make RC boats. This hobby was actually setting me in line for a career in engineering, I just didn’t know it yet. After high school, I went to college at Purdue University where I earned my bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering Technology. After graduation, I moved to Dallas, Texas where I have been working for Texas Instruments ever since. Depending on the phase of our group, my role changes from Product Engineer, Validation Engineer, Test Engineer, but most of what I do can be classified as Application Engineering.

What sets myself apart from the average engineer is my ability to admit that I don’t know everything and that sometimes I need help. I pride myself on being able to take a step back and getting a good look at the big picture. From there I am able to figure out whats working and whats not, then deep dive and pinpoint where I am having issues.

When I’m not working or tinkering with electronics, I enjoy playing basketball and hanging out with my girlfriend Rachael. She is pretty amazing because she puts up with me, my sketchy looking projects, and my horrible sense of humor. She even allows me to cook.

I like to think of myself as a hardworking, resourceful, creator who is perpetually tinkering. If you would like to know more about a project, post, or about me email me at WDOler@gmail.com or fill out the form below.
