Photo of myself in October 2007
I am currently a undergraduate student majoring in mechanical engineering, specializing in robotics. Although I’ve been known to focus on solids modeling, computer-aided engineering, and machinery design, I consider myself a robotics enthusiast.
I was born Jameson L. Tai (Chinese: 戴樂華) in 1987. I emigrated to the United States from Hong Kong in 1991, and lived in San Francisco, California until 2005, when I relocated for higher education. During high school, I founded the school's Computer and Technology Club as well as the school's robotics team. I also participated in Lowell's Army JROTC program, retiring in 2005 as a Cadet First Lieutenant. During my college career thus far, I have served as the Vice President of my university's Student Government Association and Residence Hall Association. I have also been a resident assistant as well as an orientation team member in Fall 2006. Currently I am finishing up my undergraduate coursework for my BSME specializing in robotics and spatial systems, as well as participating in the local ASME chapter and the university's student robotics organization. I also operate a small robotics-related MediaWiki on my domain, as well as the webmaster and staff photographer of my university's student-run newspaper The Florida Tech Crimson.
In my personal life I enjoy playing FPS games, such as Left 4 Dead, Left 4 Dead 2, as well as older games like Doom 2, CounterStrike, the Half Life 2 series, other miscellaneous text-based games like Erepublik (Profile), and flight simulation games like Ace Combat 6.
According to the official Wikipedia records, I made my first edit on 21 November 2006, 21:01. However, I've been a frequent contributor previously under various IPs, and I started actively contributing in November 2007. I am a rollbacker as well as an account creator (verify my rights here), however I am not an administrator. I was nominated for my first RfA on January, 2008, and my second one in September, 2008, which neither of them succeeded. I currently focus on new page patrolling, reverting vandalism, typo fixing, and improving articles related to higher education, robotics, technology, Florida, California, aviation, general engineering, mechanical engineering and other related topics. I have participated in numerous WikiProjects, such as WikiProject Robotics, WikiProject Universities, and WikiProject Florida.
