# The Tea

I'm fixing gadgets and figuring out how they tick. Imagine getting paid to solve puzzles with a soldering iron – that's what it's like! I always love tinkering with gadgets and built my own hard drive at home, but now I get paid to learn more about this stuff at work, and I feel like I’m just having fun.
