I am passionate about Hardware and I combine my work as a Geeknetic editor with my studies in Telecommunications Engineering. I started tinkering with components when I was 14 years old and today one of my biggest addictions is playing with hardware and assembling second hand computers to sell. I also enjoy playing all kinds of video games, especially multiplayer, sandbox, and racing.
