Aloha, thought I'd introduce myself. I'm Tim, originally from New York City, now living in beautiful, sunny Honolulu, HI. I've been reading the forum and the site for at least a year now and finally decided to join. I've been interested in the Titanic, expanding to ships in general, since elementary school. Before James Cameron's movie came out, we did something in school involving floating and sinking, and they told us about the Titanic, and I've been hooked since. Pretty much since then in the mid 90s, since learning a little about Thomas Andrews, I wanted to design ships when I grew up. Here I am, around 25 or so years later, holding a college degree in Naval Architecture and working as a Naval Architect.
