Thank you for visiting my blog. My name is Peter, I am a technology enthusiast and software engineer who is seeking a career change to the legal profession. My education background is in electrical engineering and computer science with special interests in networks and embedded sensors. I found my undergraduate education at UCLA highly beneficial and intellectually stimulating. Despite it being a big school, I was able to forge close and lasting relationships with some peers and professors.
I didn’t write programs all that much in school; it was more of a hobby that I have acquired over the years since my first computer class in BASIC back in 1989. UCLA didn’t teach me how to write programs, I think it taught me how to conduct studies and researches and look for answers to engineering problems.
After having worked a few years in software development and systems administration, I have realized that while I love to work with the technical aspects of computers, I also have a strong interest in seeing the formulation of ideas in tech and the “soft” interactions tech have with societies. So, here I am, about to start my JD program in Fall ’09 at IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law studying intellectual property law. There’s a sense of rebirth but also apprehension.
