My name is Eduardo Morillo. I am 28 years old and I am majoring in computer science. I absolutely love Technology and Computing. One of the fondest memories which sparked my interest in technology revolved around the time I started playing "Super Mario Bros" on the Nintendo Entertainment System. It wasn't necessarily playing video games for the first time, but how my father and I fixed it when it stopped working. It turned out that the AC Adapter was ripped thus my father took out his ol' soldering kit and fixed it within minutes. That is when I realized I wanted to hone such a skill and make it my own, despite the fact that I was only 6 years old.
My father is a Civil Engineer. My father and I didn't spend much time together, but every time we did, we spent it learning, creating, or doing something interactive. He taught me how to play chess, how to solve a Rubik's cube, solve math problems, build something out of legos and we even built a model ship together. As the years passed on and I finally made it to high school, I developed a fondness of music and began to spend more time in music classes than my required classes. There even came a time when I almost didn't graduate because I became so obsessed with being a musician.
For a very long time, I was having trouble deciding on a major. I couldn't decide whether to create video games, become a musician, or become a lawyer. Before I knew it, that the first iPhone was announced, the Nintendo Wii was released, the PS3 was a gaming powerhouse and computers were becoming more advanced with their specifications, and I was mesmerized once again.
I have always been fascinated by technology and that is why I decided to major in computer science. I see myself working along side of the biggest Tech Giants such as Apple, HP, or Samsung or perhaps working on the next big Mario game someday.
