What Do I Do?

I am currently training to become an analog design engineer. On the weekend, I co-host of Two Black Nerds, a podcast about life after graduation, and in the tech industry from the perspective of a fresh graduate.

Last year, I wrote test cases and test procedures for avionics systems. I also reviewed requirements for avionics systems. I've gained a deep appreciation in the amount of work that goes into making sure that the systems that carry us in the sky are secure.

Sometimes, I write code. I know enough HTML and CSS to put this website up. The code I am most proud of are the MatLab scripts I write for work, and problems sets. I try something new every now and then. For awile, I played around with Selenium and picked up some Java along the way.


So..., how do I pronounce your name?

If this was your name, these letters would get my neurons in a knot too. Here's a phonetic guide to pronouncing my name:

IRERE : e - ray - ray (and if you can, roll your R's.).

ROMEO : (No phonetics needed. Good ol' Shakespeare got you).

KWIHANGANA : qui - han - ghana (yep, like the country, but obviously spelled differently).

O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?

Dayton, OH.

Somewhere, an connaisseur of old English (or just Shakespeare) just shook their heads because I answered the question incorrectly. The people at Genius explain why better than I could.
