I've been building robots for over 10 years. I started the robotics blog, GoRobotics.net and sold it Summer of 2010. In 2008 I started a robotics site called RobotBox, which is a community website for robot builders to show off their projects. You can find more about me here.
I'm a PhD student in Electrical Engineering at NC State University and my research is about underwater freespace optical communication - basically lasers underwater.
