Hello fellow iFixit members!
If you don't know me already, I am that guy you see with a screwdriver in his hand at all times. Well, you probably haven't seen me in person, but if you want to imagine me, just picture a person, then add a screwdriver to his hand, and that is me. I am 15, and I take apart and fix anything that is broken. E-waste is growing each year and I want to do my part to stop that. Break your iPhone? I'll fix that so you don't have to buy a new one. Spill your Coke on your MacBook? That can totally be fixed. If everyone learned the value of repair and extending the life of electronics, the world would be a much better (and cleaner) place! I know so many people who just crack their phones then throw them away, so now, whenever I see a cracked iPhone, I just whip out a card with my number on it, and hopefully keep one more iPhone from becoming an e-waste statistic. Here is a little more on the life of
the most interesting man in the world me!
I like computers. I always have and I always will. I started off playing the original Bugdom that came preinstalled on the family G3 iMac, a game that I have loved to this day. I like all aspects of the products that Apple makes..... except for the repairability. However, despite the fact that I repair everything, I have only had 2 Apple things ever break on me.... my iPhone's dock connector and a G5 iMac(both of which were fixed). Other have not been so fortunate to live a life with almost no broken electronics, but for them, there me.
The first computer I even refurbished then sold was a 2006 MacBook Pro, which was bought for $120 (wouldn't turn on), then fixed with the simple replacement of the DC-Board, and sold for a nice profit in the eyes of a 13 year old.
I love to travel and see the culture and sites of places around the world. I have traveled all over the U.S. and visited Hawaii, Grenada, and Australia. I hope to go to Europe soon, since it is one of the many places left to see on my list.
- Trip to Maui
- Sailing Trip to Grenada
