I’m an electronics engineer that has been working in the electronics industry for many years.

I have been working as a field application engineer as well as an electronics designer, company owner and manager.
My free time is spent a lot on learning new technical stuff.

I also enjoy teaching things, and Udemy give me the opportunity to use their platform to share my knowledge with others.

My general focus will be on subjects such as designing electronics and software.
