Sup all, I'm Patrick. I was directed to this site by none other than the webmaster David. I am the Prop Master at Stone Bridge HS thus I build and manage the props for the plays. If you didn't figure it out by my screen name I am a Star Wars nerd. That is how I got into prop building. And that is also how I got the position of prop master at my school.

Electronics genius? Hello Patrick! I get the feeling we're about to become on-line friends pretty quickly. Electronics was my hobby long before it became my career. I still love it and always like to meet people who's eyes don't glaze over when I talk about it.

Actually DMX, I am not really that fluent in electronics. I have however experimented with things and I can make basic circuits. The one I'm sure David is thinking of is my custom Boba Fett helmet which I modified to make the antenna go up and down with a remote controlled servo. All I did was solder the servo to a mini rc car circuit board. A very simple mod. But I am interested in learning alot more than the basics of electronics though.

And I want to encourage that. And, by the way, welcome to the boards!
