Hi, my name is Nat. I’m a computer programmer, Japanese translator, space enthusiast, puzzle designer, and proud Kentuckian. I currently live in Seattle, WA, where I’m constantly busy with one project or another. I work at Nintendo of America, where I help game developers for our various systems make their games. I also run an annual puzzle-solving competition called SEAHOP. (Not sure if it’s going to happen this year, though, due to so much going on in my life.)

Ever since I was a child designing castles with LEGO bricks, I’ve been fascinated with engineering. I started this blog to share my thoughts and ideas about various sub-fields within the greater field of engineering. Hopefully you’ll find it interesting and educational!
