Hello! My name is Andrew and this is my profile page. I was employed by iFixit from February 2009 to August 2011, and in that time I had the opportunity to author over 1200 repair guides and participated in countless teardowns (check out the contributions tab above). I hope you enjoy the page, and don't hesitate to shoot me an email if you have any questions or comments.
I graduated from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo in June 2010 with a Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering. As all the gray haired folks say, they were the best years of my life and I couldn't have chosen a better place to get a degree. My senior project involved the design and manufacture of carbon fiber/aluminum control arms, pushrods, and tierods for the front suspension of Cal Poly's mini Formula SAE car. They ended up being 40% lighter than the previous steel suspension components, and the longest member (~18" long) held over 1800 lbs in compression without buckling. I successfully passed the EIT/FE exam in April 2010. Areas of interest include machine design, design of composite structures, strain gage technology, oil drilling engineering, stress analysis, statics, dynamics, vibrations, failure analysis, and welding metallurgy.
Prior to attending Cal Poly, I graduated from Parkland High School in Allentown, PA.
I've had this car for over eight years, and in that time it has gone through quite the transformation. The major work I've done is listed below, from most recent backward:
I've always enjoyed riding bicycles, but never could afford anything more than a Wal-Mart quality mountain bike. After saving for a considerable amount of time, I bought a Bianchi Via Nirone 7 in January '09. I haven't done any upgrades to it other than putting on Continental's GP Attack/Force tire set. It's a ton of fun, and I really should wear a helmet. Sorry, mom.
My dad bought this 1969 Nikon F in Okinawa during the Vietnam war. Luckily, my high school had photography classes with a well-equipped photo lab for developing pictures. For some reason, I don't have a picture of it with the lens on. Since all Nikon lenses use the same flange, I took the above photo of the body with the original 50 mm 1:1.4 Nikkor lens mounted to our D90. Some photos I've taken with it and personally developed:
