About OrenL
Joined July 2016
I am a quiet fellow who has a lifelong interest in analog and digital electronics as a hobby. I enjoy electronic music and building analog and digital synthesizers. I also enjoy computer graphics and designing software to render graphics, explore fractal geometry, or visualize data. I also enjoy organic gardening, health and diet awareness, astronomy/astrophysics, beard/moustache competitions, theme parks and roller coasters and am a member of American Coaster Enthusiasts (ACE).
At the age of 7, I wired a flashlight battery and bulb into a circuit. The bulb lit! That was the start of my interest in electronics.
Years later, it was the beauty of computer graphics and fractal geometry that got me started in programming. I saw pretty renderings of the Mandelbrot Set in the August 1985 issue of Scientific American and then wrote a program on my (then new) Apple //e that would render it. The rest is history!
Today, I work professionally as a mobile app software engineer, developing iOS apps.
I am a fast learner, tend to learn-on-demand what is needed to accomplish a task, and am very “teachable”.
Now I am here at Wealthy Affiliate to learn all that is needed to achieve a thriving online business, and help others do likewise!

Hi Oren, thanks for adding me to your network, you are now added to mine as well.

That's some exciting interests of yours. I'm fascinated by Mandelbrots fractals myself and keep opening that app on my iPad to explore this beautiful world.

Also very much into music, read about astronomy and used to program my Amiga 1000+500 in the 80s.

I bet you enjoy chess as well, the way you are wired?!

All the best,

nurselizstar Premium
Well hello Oren! Thank you kindly for the follow. I will be delighted to follow you back! Love the beard. Got a ZZTop thing going there! Love it!! I wish you oodles of success. Sounds like you have niche material, and that is half the battle. Good luck in all you do!

Hey Oren - thanks for follow! We have some things in common - I also work in IT and started out working with the first IBM PC in 1985 - and I programmed one of my DOS based machines to beep-play the intro to Beethoven's 5th Symphony in BASIC! Haha I use an iMac now.

I'm a Program Manager these days and get everyone else to do the work!

Cool to be connected.

Cheers, Mary-Louise

Hello there Oren!
Great to have a techie, engineer, programmer support and follow me here at Wealthy Affiliate! I am now your follower!

I will check out your facebook and other social media links. I also have a solar facebook group with 135k members and going on six years now. We have hobbyists, installers, parts suppliers, techies, engineers etc in the group so you might find that interesting.

The Philippines, especially the outlaying provinces have a long time issue of non stop brown outs. Slowly solar are getting installed including some microgrids using Tesla's Powerpacks.


OrenL Premium
Cool stuff! I have requested to join your solar FB group.

Hello! OrenL,

Thank you for the follow! I’m following you too.

You have a very interesting profile! You are very talented in everything you focus on.

Surely WA is a good place to use those talents to help people.

WA training is the best to give you a solid ground in Affiliate Marketing.

I wish you all the best as you continue to do the lessons and build your business.


fyre Premium
I was called to come read your profile and now I know why.

I bought a honda prelude ages ago owned by a really cool lesbian couple in PA. The car came equipt with an ACE sticker and I thought it was so freaking cool. Joining ACE has been on my bucket list for a long time and you re-inspired me!

You looked really familiar to me as well so there was no way I wasn't coming to read your Bio :) Sometimes, when I see a familiar face I can't explain...I wonder if I've danced with/near them at a Grateful Dead show long ago.

Anyhoo, thank you for connecting. I'm sure we will cross paths again.

OrenL Premium
A delightfully small world it is! Come join the fun with ACE! That is one big motivation for me to work hard at building a business here on WA.
fyre Premium
Heehee yep, I used to say 6 degrees of separation but, now I say a 1/2 a degree of separation!

I absolutely have ACE bookmarked now! Also on the bucket list...going to Disney land for the first time.

All plans to go there have always been thwarted over the years. It's getting quite comical now, the stories of NoT getting there ha!

Wind in my hair and in your beard..yep, awesome motivation!

Hi, Oren,
Wow, what a Bio! My interest in electronics stemmed from similar early beginnings. I was bought a child's electronic kit, back in the 60's. I used to have my nose pressed up against a local electronics store drooling over a Commodore PET. I remember it was running an asteroids program. Oh! How I wanted one. My first computer was a Vic 20.
Thanks for the follow, Oren.
Best wishes,
heikob Premium
Hi Oren, thanks for the follow as i will do the same. You have a very impressive background in electronics. The first thing that struck my eye was that you like electronic music. I am a 80 s guy and thats how i got started with Synthesizers back in the days. Owned a few recording studios and was working as a producer during the heydays of techno and synthypop.
OrenL Premium
Awesome! It is really cool to find others with common interests here in the community. I built a small analog synth back in the early '80s. The ball started to roll from there!
CandP Premium
Hello Oren, and thanks for your follow. We follow you right back.

Very interesting bio you have. Bet you have won some of those beard/moustache competitions, too! With your background, there is no doubt you will be on your way to success shortly here at WA! We are still in training and loving it. Wishing you all good things. Colette and Philip

Hennry Premium
Hey there! I was about to comment on what a great beard you have when I read that you entered into beard/moustache competitions. Its sounds as if you have held on to the Apple machine you've had from the very early days.

Thanks for adding me to your circle. I'm now following you. Bye for now.

19maw61 Premium
Hey Oren,
I must say you do have a cool beard. You’ve had a interesting childhood it appears. I stuck a wire hanger in socket at the age of 5 thinking I’d make fireworks! The end result was the “end” result!

You will do amazingly well at WA!
Thanks for following. I’m right behind you!
Trujunco Premium
...And a wonderful life you live. Thank you especially for the follow and being available here at WA.
My focus though unrelated to your own has brought me to meet people from every "walk of life", and I find it fascinating that someone holds an avid interest in Fractal Geometry as I didn't have the slightest idea of what that is...until I looked it up. And Lo'
we are talking by example the shapes a snowflake, and I am intrigued more still.
Anyway good looking out toward you,great profile;better beard
and oh what fun we would have at Cedar Point...if I weren't so

foxxfyrre Premium
Hi Oren, Thanks for the follow, following you back. And I remember that issue of Scientific American. It was just shortly after that I saw the Timex Sinclair 1000 in an issue of Popular Science that got me into computers.
Bought a Timex and built an analogue clock in its quirky BASIC Language. Enough of that and got myself a Tandy 1000 SX
Those were the fun computer days lol

OrenL Premium
Yes - those were fun days indeed! It's a blast meeting up with fellow WA'ers with common interests.
julesnp Premium
Good day Oren,
You have an impressive and interesting bio. I congratulate you on all of your achievements and I can notice in your writing that this is just a start.... I thank you for your follow and I am following you back. I am sure that in a relative future I will have questions for you on graphics. I have looked at a few of your pages ie. Facebook etc... and it really looks great. I wish you the very best in all of your projects.
Have a great day.

TeamIceCream Premium
Hi Oren

Pleased to meet! ;-) Read your complete Bio on your website and WOW that sounds so interesting!

Hubby's eyes lit up when he heard about Assembler and "C" - he used to been into Cobol, Assembler, C++ and a few minors.

Solar also peaked our interest since today is actually our 2nd day since he installed our new solar panels on our RV! And he's also into the kinds of stuff that are soldered... ;-)

Electronic music and Roller Coasters are more my kind of thing! ;-)

Looking forward to learning from you!

Thank you for the follow - has done likewise. ;-)
OrenL Premium
I *love* the WA community! It is so much fun running into others with common interests and stories.

Hello Oren! Good to see a fellow synth enthusiast. Big passion of mine and even focused my niche on it. Thanks for the follow! If you have a chance, check out my site and let me know what you think. Still working on a graphics logo for it.

brichnow21 Premium
Hello, Oren, and thank you for adding me to your network!

Your profile shows the joy of "work", when its something put in your heart!
I believe, I , too, had an earlier calling for my specialty in teaching, and with the guidance of my high school counselor it was spot on!
She took the desire to be a "shrink", and a teacher, and introduced my to a new field. Teaching the Emotionally Disturbed! Back in the 60's, they were just discipline problems, with no program.
This was cutting edge!
I have always been grateful for her gift to me.
Wish you the best in this new branch of learning for you, as well.
BTW? Do you win those contests!! Beautiful beard!!
OrenL Premium
Hi Barbara, thanks for the kind words! Yes, I have placed or won categories in beard contests. I do have a small collection of trophies :-)
It is amazing the wonderful diversity of interesting people I've met here on WA over the past year+ I've been here.
brichnow21 Premium
So, true! I love getting to know all these talented people, young and old! What a goldmine!!
Thanks, for the follow! Brain dead, tonight but will checkout A blog or 2, tomorrow!

Hi Oren,

Thank you for adding me to your network. You're a very interesting fellow - quite a character! Something tells me that you'd be successful in an entrepreneurial venture in no time!

It's very nice to e-meet you. I look forward to watching you succeed and hopefully moving that direction myself. :)

OrenL Premium
Thank you! It is a pleasure to e-meet you likewise.
theManinRags Premium
Hello Oren, It's an honour to meet you Sir. I'm really impressed by your wide and varied array of interests. I remember when I first discovered Mandlebrot and fractal geometry, It blew my mind. It still does. I wonder if you have ever been able to incorporate it into your music? Seeds set free in time... Thanks for the follow :)
OrenL Premium
A pleasure! Yes, I have been interested in combining fractals and music by writing software to generate MIDI output from fractals.
IvyT Premium
Hi Oren! Nice to meet you. We share some common interests. I studied electronic music and art at uni back in the 90s as part of a double degree in graphic art and music composition. I remember it all very fondly, and think some of our experiments and adventures in electroacoustics and animation can still be considered cutting edge even all these years later. So much anodyne stuff out there today! I miss the geodesic dome we once put our immersive shows on/in. Have a lovely day.
OrenL Premium
Hi Ivy, that is super cool! I am hoping to "liberate" myself to the point where I be building synth modules and doing electronic music full time!
I have meet a few others here on WA with electronic music interests.

Cheers, Oren
IvyT Premium
Oh, that's so nice to know! Birds of a feather and all that. :)
phildora Premium
Hi Oren and a big welcome to the WA Community! Thanks for the follow!

Now that you have established your business goals, that means you are focused, determined, and motivated to implement the WA training modules to achieve success!

Don't hesitate to ask questions--I sure did! I also used the search bar at the top of each page where you will find articles, blogs, and videos to accomplish any task. I'm into my fifth week here and on day 7, I ranked #1 and page 1 on Google with my website.

If I can do it--oh, oh, that means you can too! All the best in not only meeting but exceeding your business goals!
AnthonK Premium
Hi Orenl, thank you for your support and follow. I am new to the online business environment and very excited to be part of the Wealthy Affiliate family. Accomplishments of WA members are encouraging to me and also confirmation that the WA system is working, provided that we do our part. To me, WA is the place to be. Wishing you success and lots of blessings with your WA business.

Have a wonderful day.

Cindyda1 Premium
OrenL! Thank you for connecting with me. Myself being one that has trouble adding 2+2 I find great pleasure in hanging with those who have greater minds than myself! I actually take pride in seeking out those that either are blessed with using the other side of their brain than myself or just overall have the ability to use both sides better than I. I am not a big social media fan (But I'm trying to make myself think about being one).

I will visit your website. I am delighted to follow along with you here as I am sure I will learn a lot. It may be a one sided relationship for you since I don't have much to offer, but I'm willing to try! ;-) I have no doubt you will rock the online business world!
svaata Premium
Hi Oren! Thanks for writing a comment to my profile. Thought I'd pop by and write a few words here as well. You have a lot of great interests and skills! I got excited about fractals too when I was younger when my father learned how to create fractals on computer. It was amazing! I've also worked as a programmer for a very long time, but not full-time at the moment anymore. Funny to meet people who have surprisingly similar skillsets.

I hope you enjoy this community and the trainings!
OrenL Premium
Awesome! It is amazing the number of like-minded folk I've meet here on WA.
A pleasure to meet you!
GaryDW Premium
You are certainly one interesting character Oren, with many and varied interests. I share your interest in organic farming. We are going to have to embrace regenerative organic farming globally if we are to have any chance of feeding the rapidly growing population. You should take to affiliate marketing like a duck to water, given your background and you have come to the right place to learn about it.
RayW2 Premium
Hiya Olen, Thanks for the Follow (Followed you back). Wish I got into computers when I had the chance in High School, but never took it up. Finally came to my senses around '94 and been at it ever since. No Fundi... but consider myself educated in self learned IT. Running my own "one-man-show" IT Support company and loving it. But the productive income will hopefully come in time from WA/ All the best Matey :-)

ToLiNoLi Premium
Hi Oren,

Do you have any animated fractals I can look at? I will have a startup project in 2 months, where we will make a DJ mix (live recorded) for a Youtube video once a month, and I am looking for animated fractals to mix them with the DJer behind the DJ mixer (Pioneer DDJ SZ), every month someone else will mix. This video will be used to link it back to the ToLiNoLi website (To Like or Not To Like, that is the question) I will create, can be yours too. if you are interested, drop me a line or two. :)

Btw I love making music myself, as a hobby, I use Ableton Live 9 with Push 2, the DDJ SZ mixer is mine too btw....
OrenL Premium
Hi Stefan, I can certainly generate animated fractals if only I had time to write code and experiment with it. Too much other stuff going on at the moment.
Sounds like an interesting concept!
BradB18 Premium
Thanks Oren,

You're almost the splitting image of a mate of mine ANT who I play guitar with when I have the time.
Except you look like he did 10 years ago cause he has lost a bit on top now.
I always wanted to be an astronaut when I was a real young kid
AND nothing has changed since I am now a much older kid.

Cheers Oren and good luck

You've joined a great community of people who are always around should you need a question answered or a problem solved.

Hello Oren, Nice to be connected!
♫Thank you for following me. ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA.
I am a fairly newbie to WA, but I have put my head into it and I am prepared to do the work needed to reach success.
My first road bump was to how to decide on a niche. I thought it good to write a post on how I got to a decision. Please read about it here and leave me a comment. Cheers for now.
….enjoy the WA journey
Karentrcy84 Premium
Thank you for following me. Unfortunately I am digital illiterate, but I really appreciate all it does. I wish I could hook up more gadgets for music etc. I am fascinated by those things but the 84 in my name refers to my age, and so I didn't grow up with digital things.
Good luck to you in your journey
Pernilla Premium
Hello Oren!
Thanks a lot for following me! I will follow you too.
I also have "hundreds" of things I'm interested in, many of them the same as you. For example I love theme parks and roller coaster rides but a beard competition is not actually my goal, growing a beard is not a strength of mine!
I'm convinced you'll be a successful online entrepreneur. Wish you all the best.

:-) Pernilla
JustBob Premium
I see that you have been with WA a while and are hopefully making some money by now.
Are you still doing any electronics hobbying? It seems to me that hobby electronics is probably pretty much dead. And, I fear that that will diminish the likelihood of America maintaining its dominance in electronics development.
Regardless, you've got many skills and interests that should be cash-able. Good luck.
JustBob Premium
Hi again,

I didn't have time yesterday to write more, but thought that with your diverse interests that I might suggest a couple of topics for you. But first as a bit of a lead-in of what will follow, I haven't gone deeply in to fractals, but love the art one can make with colorful renditions of Mandlebrot sets and find the idea of fractal dimensions very interesting conceptually. Neither are personally of practical use in my life. So, onward.

At www.shirky.com/writings there is an article "Power Laws, Weblogs, and Inequality" which I filed away over 10 years ago (so I took me awhile to find) which you may find quite interesting. I now see that that author has much, much more but I have only read this one article. This article has useful as well as conceptually interesting material.

A second item is the concept of "Anti-fragile". Until Nassim Taleb specifically coined this term in his book "Antifragile ...", this concept was essentially absent in every culture on the planet. All cultures consider the opposite of "fragile" as being "robust" whereas it can be well argued that it is "anti-fragile". Wikipedia gives a good introduction. Antifragile is also useful and conceptually interesting.

Back to work.

OrenL Premium
Hi Bob, a pleasure to meet you!

Yes, my interests in electronics, synths, fractals and 3D rendering are alive and well, but in a holding pattern for now.
Between my day work, and evenings/weekends spent on the WA training and building out my business website, I have no time left for anything else. I am hoping that will change once my business becomes productive.

Thanks for sharing that blog - there's some stimulating stuff in there. I have to hunt down that "Antifragile" book too.
JustBob Premium
You are welcome. But, as your business proceeds, I expect that you'll get busier--which is not bad--and hopefully richer.
I myself am not following up on either right now.
Nice thing about "being interested" is there is always something (or too much) to explore.
OrenL Premium
The ultimate goal is to reach a point where I can quit my day job and be pulling a full time income from my website(s). Until then, it's going to be very busy!

I see you live in San Diego. I grew up there! I lived in Spring Valley and El Cajon.
JustBob Premium
In Spring Valley at present.
Where are you now?

Thanks! I've won or placed in a few contests.
Your website looks great! Keep up the great work.
JanSwe Premium
Hi, Oren and thanks for the follow!

Nice interests you got there :) I also like music and computers.

I also think it's interesting with organic gardening but I know nothing about it...but I got some eye on it when I visit a friend who studied in the US. I wasn't very old then so it was my first trip by plane from Sweden. It was in Boulder Creek in CA and we visit a planting in the forest were a couple of people lived on what they were planting in their organic garden.

I got bored at my job as job as a procurement officer so I quit it and now trying to work online with something I like.

Welcome to connect more with me if you would like to share or discuss something or maybe I contact you :)

I wish you all the best with you online business!

NWTDennis Premium
Hello Oren ... thank you for the follow. Seems to me your background and skills should allow you the fast track the steep learning curve. I'm envious of what you have going for you.

I'm well educated (BS Eng & MBA), but all this was before the digital revolution. I used a K&E Slide Rule to work math and science problems in college and didn't get my first HP Calculator until about 5 years into my first job.

I was a virtual newbie when I started WA, but I'm plugging along. I'll get there ... it's just going to take me a little longer than a fast tracker like yourself.
OrenL Premium
It is a pleasure to be here, Dennis! I'm good with the technical "geeky" stuff, but internet marketing is a whole new game for me, too! Getting there bit by bit...

Thanks for the opportunity to become part of your network.with your follow. Best wishes to you here at WA and your online business success!

It has been awhile since I have been able to spend any time here at WA which is obvious from the lack of content on my websites and non-interaction with other members here. I'm sorry I was not here when you originally started to follow me, really not much to follow for a long time.
Hope you check in on every once in awhile and keep me focused..

Good afternoon to you Oren, my name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. You have a nact of taking the bull by the horns, so I'm following you back! If you have no online marketing experience, then I suggest you first take the Get Started Here section [top left green box] to learn the basics. You'll learn how to pick your niche, build your niche website and learn keyword research. All else is built on these three principles.

I look forward to working with you and wish you much success and prosperity in reaching your goals.

Thank you for the follow Oren! It's great to meet you...very interesting profile, btw! I'm sure you'll go far in whatever niche you set your mind to do...in fact, it looks like you have quite a few you're interested in already.

I see we have computer graphics in common, besides WA...although I have no idea on how to design software, I recently began learning how to create graphics such as 3d images/models and eventually plan on learning animation for these. Anyways, it's great to meet someone that actually designs and uses the software to do these types of things.

Keep up the awesome job!
Best wishes :) ~Sherry

Cool profile dude! Great beard man, working on mine. Couple years into it. My wife bought me some beard care stuff for the holidays, works great. No competitions though, lol.
You have quite the background, which must really be beneficial for you on this site. Synths I know about, and electronic music. That's cool you build them. Been meaning to get my hands on one again soon.
Thanks for the follow!! :)

Hi OrenL , fractal geometry ,your digital interest , electrical curiosity interest at young age etc all grabbed my attention , I have had Hobby's and interests and self motivation in these also from young age and even some employment in silicon chip manufacturing years ago , wire wrap digital TTL's , even three phase mining electricity , science interests were always motivators . I rarely rarely ever ever stumble across people with similar interest , someday I hope finishing self teach the calculus so I might have a chance understanding more. Happy New Year !

Hi, and thanks for following me. Welcome to WA and an adventurous journey for you. I can see that you really grasp things quickly. Five websites, that's quite a lot. I have only one yet and I have been here for 6 months now. I can hardly keep up with that. So I admire you for being so efficient.

Toshmack Premium
Hi Oren,
Many thanks for the follow, I have followed you right back.
It's great to connect here on WA.
I was exactly the same at that age with bulbs, batteries, switches, screwed to a plank of wood and just about anything else I could find Lol.
I wish you every success.
Cheers, Tosh :)

Oren, nice to hear from you. Now that is what I call a beard. Was that your twin beard on FB! Looks like it.

Now I should introduce you to my partner. His earliest trek into development was about the same age as you. He built a rocket, launched it down the road behind their house (a very secluded area in the bush) and broadsided the bread van. Apparently that was the fastest his mother ever saw him run!

He's been the senior electronics tech for alternative energy and the similar occupations with you go on. He hasn't got into programming computers but does programs on his calculators. And reads the same magazines. Now I must ask do you make home brew beer and cider. If so the similarities would be complete.

No beard, though just a bushy moustache.

So now I don't have to talk about myself (except I grow the hops and do the beer now.)

Happy travelling here and keep in touch.
OrenL Premium
Hi Helen, Thanks for the intro! No, I don't make beer or cider. Too much else to do! Good to get to know you.

Hey Oren, you say quiet....I see adventure wild boy in those eyes and smile, maybe it's just cause you know cool stuff...
I'm stuck on trying to figure out the pretty url shortener plugin so I can redirect them and make Google like me? Yes, I have watched the tutorial 3 times...did that smile just turn into a belly laugh? it's ok I do it in the mirror all the time...

SteveCrozza Premium
Hi and thanx for the follow, my first encounter with a computer was with an Apple 11e and is memorable because the boss walked in with several boxes and said, "Well you wanted a computer ... here it is!"

Loved that computer, but I am not in your league, no where near it and I can't grow a beard like that either.

Hello Oren and Welcome to wealthy affiliate.
You will probably know by now that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
So can I suggest you browse some more of the 250+ blogs I have published within WA.
I'm sure you will go away with lots of tips and advice.
Thank you for the follow as well and I will follow you.

Hello Oren, ♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right, the first website link (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes
