Once there was a man named Alec. Alec had a lot of hobbies. Alec needed to get out of the house more. Alec joined i3 since he already knew a lot of the members and especially since they had table-top gaming twice a month. As soon as Alec joined i3, table-top gaming was canceled. This made Alec sad. Alec decided to take over table-top gaming at i3. Alec is happy again. The end.
I am a geek of all trades. I have been working with computers since I was about 6 years old. I started teaching myself how to program at about 9 years old. Somehow that became my job.
I have a lot of hobbies and interests. Here's a list of some of them:
- Table-Top Games (Board, Card, Dice, RPG, Etc.)
- Video Games
- Ham Radio
- Wood Working
- Nature (Animals, Plants, Trees, Etc.)
- Music (Mostly listening to...but I create a bit here and there when I'm sure I'm alone.)
- Movies (Sci-Fi, Comedy, Action, low-budget, cult, pretty much anything that doesn't have Shia LaBeouf in it.)
- Random cool toys and gadgets

- Description: 3D Printed case for the table-top game Hive Pocket. Case designed in Sketch Up, sliced in Cura, and printed on the Rostock MAX.
Key Switch Tester Brains

Random 3D Prints
There are many things that others have designed and I am simply printing cause I want one. I'll try and list those here with source links.
