Hello from AMD!

post #1 of 72
Thread Starter 
Hey, I'm Robert, the AMD rep who organized our involvement with the Grand Champion Series and spent the day down on Parliament with many of you.

A little bit about me:

I'm 26 years old. I moved to Canada from the Detroit metro area two years ago to work for AMD. I do product marketing for high-end desktop GPUs (e.g. Radeon 7750+), CrossFire and Eyefinity. I live in Toronto proper and love it. I also really love the Detroit area, even the city proper, and am extremely proud of the time I got to spend there. I won't move back any time soon, but one day I hope to live in beautiful Michigan again.

In my spare time: I love computers, ultra-mobile computing solutions (e.g. phones, HTPC, detachables, tablets), I hack Android phones (currently have a Nexus 4), I'm a Guild Wars 2 player, a Twitter junkie, a craft beer snob, and an amateur bodybuilder. Gamer? You bet. 241 games on Steam!

I have a fascination with Pokemon, fast cars, old console ROMs and emulators, sci-fi and fantasy books, Chinese mechanical watches, soapmaking, fashion, partying on the weekend and My Little Pony: FiM.

Prior to working for AMD, I did hardware reviews and industry analysis for icrontic.com after hours (five years), and then 9-5 I was a technical writer for a small company that did managed solutions for Sun Micro servers before the Oracle buyout.

It was great to meet some of you in TO, and I hope to meet thousands more of you in the days ahead.

On my own accord. After helping Nick out with hardware, it seemed logical that I would join and stick around.

To elaborate: I have a "home" forum that I visit frequently, and I love the community, but over the years it has become less about hardware and more about gaming/geek culture. I don't mind that at all, because I'm interested in all of those things, but the lack of hardware discussion has left a gap that OCN fills nicely. smile.gif
