As if having AustinGriffith.com isn't vain enough, here's more about me:
I was born in Sidney, Nebraska on August 16th, 1982 to two school teachers who soon moved to Chadron, Nebraska and made my little brother, Zak. We all then moved to Guernsey, Wyoming when I was about 5 years old. I can still remember learning how to ride my bike right around that time. Man, I biffed it hard on this dirt road outside our house... but that's another story.
I grew up in Guernsey and because it was a small town, even nerdy little me got to start on both the football and basketball teams. I Graduated from Guernsey-Sunrise High School in May of 2001 ranked 5th in a class of 19 people.
After high school, I attended the University of Wyoming and picked up a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Engineering. I was loving college so much (and miss it to this day), I decided to stay for more. In August of 2006, I received my Master's Degree in Electrical Engineering with one B away from a 4.0 GPA.
One time when I was younger, I was camping and I threw a rock up in a tree and it came back down and hit me in the forehead and I had to get stitches.
In June of 2006, before I had even officially graduated, I started working full-time for a company in Southern Colorado that designs robotic cnc plasma cutting machines. I have worked there ever since doing all sorts of challenging things.
It is a great feeling for me to be doing my hobby as my job and one day I hope that one of my projects outside of work will turn in to real work.
I have a big list of things I want to accomplish in the next 15 years, but at the end of that list is getting my Ph.D. in Computer Engineering and retiring to a life of teaching. Hey... a guy's gotta dream right?
