I have always enjoyed the sea and the freedom it meant. and the last year i have had a dream to live on the open seas. for me its the closest thing to living in space, only easier and more affordable. so i was sitting at home friday night surfing the web. reading about boats house boats etc. that lead me into some interesting reading about Sealand (a micronation)
well i wanted to be a part of something similar so searching and reading about different projects i ended up here. so i decided to sign up and try to help out the project become a reality.
also i am a big believer in Meritocracy and Darwinism.
My name is Antonio i am 23 years old. i currently live in the city of Gothenburg / Sweden, i moved here in 1991 from Croatia because of the Balkan war.
After i finished a Technical “gymnasium” (?highschool? 16-19years old) i moved to Gothenburg and worked for Volvo Cars for a few years. then i decided i wanted an education. i narrowed it down to 2 choices
1. “sea engineer” (control and maintain the engine room of a ship and also other ship functions)
2. “Auto/Mechanical Designer/Engineer” (learn how to build car and other parts in the computer, run simulations lead projects learn about different materials etc.)
i got accepted into both schools but i chose number 2. i think it will be more stimulating to create new stuff then to maintain stuff someone else has already made. i also love engines and other mechanical stuff. people also say i am a problem solver. so i have finished my first year and have 2 more years to go.
i will probably try to get work in Norway’s offshore industry after i complete my education.
because i am a student i can not help the project out financially.
but i have skills in theese areas so far:
first i would say i am fluent in 3 languages.
English, Swedish and Croatian
so far i have also learned to use these programs:
and i have also learned to use 3D studio max.
well hopefully you will learn more about me as you take time to know me.
