I am an aspiring businessperson living in China right now (as of 9/21/15). I used to work for MAKE, and I have a strong interest in all things hardware, software, tech.
I'm in China because most businesses that deal with physical goods always end up in China anyways, so what better idea than to spend some of my youth learning about the culture and language?
I'm more of a Maker than a hardcore engineer. I don't think I'll ever be a full-time engineer, but I can see myself owning my own machine/wood/tech workshop at age 50 and building whatever the hell I want.
