Hello fellow classmates and Dr. Crane. My name is Adam Sylvia and I'm a senior at EWU in Spokane majoring in electrical engineering. The reason I chose this major is because I prefer being put into situations where I am forced to think critically and I am also very interested in how electricity works. It is ironic that this is the major I chose though. I am not a traditional student and have been out of high school for 9 years. I remember specifically expressing to friends and family that I would never take another math class in my life. Six years later I chose one of the most math heavy degrees you can get. I guess that is proof that people change.
I have an AAS in Audio Engineering from SFCC and run sound on occasion for events or on a Sunday at church. Snowboarding is one of my hobbies and I got to immerse myself into that culture for 5 years as an employee at a Ski/Board shop. I don't get up to the mountain as often as I prefer anymore but hopefully in the future. My wife and I have been married for 4 years, have a dog and own a house in the Shadle neighborhood.
