Andrew Goldberg, Technical Writer
After a brief stint in Marine Engineering at Cal Maritime, where he tinkered with big diesel engines and visited South America on the Training Ship Golden Bear, Andrew studied General Engineering at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. While there, he was quickly absorbed by his studies in Mechatronics, a multidisciplinary field of engineering that focuses on the combination of several kinds of engineering to design awesome systems. Currently, Andrew is one of the lead Technical Writers at iFixit and a key producer of their renowned Device Teardowns.
