Hi, I’m Imran.
You probably want to know more about me, right? Well, I’m in my late thirties, married with a child, living in the suburbs of Seattle. I have a degree in Economics, and I work as an IT Project Manager at the UW Department of Chemistry. In the evenings after work, I’m a law student at Seattle University School of Law. I’ve worked a few jobs — most of my life has been spent working in very large corporations. I’ve been in tech ever since I was a kid. Literally, I wrote my first program when I was 8 or 9 years old — as did pretty much all my nerdy friends. A simple basic program where a plane flew over a moving scene. The resolution of computers was really poor in those days — my propeller was a very thick line that grew and shrank, and the plane actually stayed in place. I moved the ground.
I’m interested in all things geek. 3d printing, software, entrepreneurship — pretengineering. I’ve got a love of science, and I keep myself abreast of developments in many fields. Working at a University, I get the luxury of seeing the current research thought in so many disciplines. I feel I’ve got a unique view into the future — I get to live a few years ahead of everyone else. The thing that’s got my mind right now is mechatronics. That is mechanical machines with electronic controls. 3d printers are a great example, but frankly, any robot is one. I’m a beginner to self-taught mechatronics, and this blog is documenting my exploits personal, professional, and along my interests.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the blog!
