Hello!

My name is Henry Waill.

I like making things that help people.

About Me

I hate writing these types of things.

I think I'm a really likable guy! On the rare occasion, I've even been told I'm funny and intelligent... but you will learn none of that from the following paragraphs.

My name is still Henry! I'm an engineer and designer with a B.S. degree in Creative Technology and Design. I enjoy solving problems through programming, electronics, physical fabrication, web development and graphic design, among many other avenues. I love both learning and creating, both for their own sakes and for the sake of helping to solve all sorts of problems.

I also enjoy playing piano, weaving, hiking with my dog and rock climbing.
