Technical Engineer working in IT for a large Financial Institution. I've worked in IT for over 35 years, first with desktops and other bank related equipment, then in LAN/WAN networking. I have worked on PCs for decades. However, I only built my first PC from scratch in 2018. Probably a common story; bought a prebuilt, realized it's limitations and flaws, watched many, many build videos for gaming PCs and decided to build my own even though not a gamer. I just enjoy planning and building PCs.

I've used my own custom builds since then for working from home and working remotely. In addition, I've supplied PCs to family members and friends.
