My name is Kevin Barker, I am 25 years old. Yes, I am a one man team and I fund everything myself. I live in Seattle, WA and I work at a company that makes aerospace components. I first started building in 2003; when I started I had pretty much no experience in metalworking or electronics. My first bot (Terminal Velocity) took me a full year to build until I took it into competition. I've built many bots since, most of which have been sold, scrapped, or retooled into newer machines. I tend to only fight the big bots once per year, and compete every 3 months or so with the smaller ones in the Seattle area. Thanks for looking at my site!
