Hello everybody! My name is Cameron Whitaker. I am currently a student at Texas A&M University, and I am majoring in electrical engineering. I am originally from Garden Grove, California (about 40 miles south of L.A.), and I moved to Texas in 2003.

Ever since I was little, I wanted to be an engineer. Crazy, right? Well. I have always loved electricity and I love to make electronic devices, most of which are useless, but fun to play with. This led me to pursue a career in electrical engineering. However, I don't know much about all this fangled modern technology. I barely know how to use a cell phone, I can hardly tell the difference between modern game systems, and, as for computers, I am a wet match in a dark cave. I’ve only recently figured out e-mail. The audio world is where my real strength is. I build amplifiers, synthesizers, radios, etc. Having said that, I can tell you about my other half. I love music, musical instruments, and devices that play music. I do play several music instruments, (none of them very well), such as; bass guitar, Theremin, keyboard, ocarina, harmonica, recorder, jaw harp, kena, and there's probably another one in there somewhere...

Now for my other half... (yes, I do have three halves). I love almost anything old. I have several antique radios, 4 record players including a wind-up Victrola, numerous LPs and 78's, and electron tubes. Many many electron tubes. I also drive an old car, a '65 Beetle, which is my favorite car of all time. In fact, several of the cars I wanted, such as a Stanley Steamer, Model T, or a Doble Steamer, all date prior to 1930. My parents wouldn’t let me get any of them for some reason.

Well, that's pretty much all I wanted to say. Now if you actually read through it and made it this far, then I am amazed that I didn't bore you to death, and I thank you for reading it. You probably still don't fully understand me, but don't worry. I don't even understand me. Or physics, or politics... Maybe I should just stop there... If you want to know anything else, or you just want to talk to me, then feel free to e-mail me at any time.
