Hey there, my name is Ian Van Sciver. I am currently a first year at Cal Poly, studying biomedical engineering.
I’ve always had an attraction to fixing things, something that drove me to pursue an engineering degree. YouTube or websites like IFixIt have helped me to replace screens on my IOS devices, and perform maintenance/improve on my 2005 Toyota 4Runner. I started out with maintenance such as changing the oil and brakes, and then went on to improve it by installing a new stereo, brake calipers, upper control arms, and lifting the suspension. I also repaired my car with the help of my Dad after an accident.
While not major projects, the work I have done with the aid of online instructions have showed me the importance of being able to fix your own stuff. I can’t wait to get started on making guides for other people to use!
In my free time, I like to play basketball, surf, and explore the outdoors.
