The photo is 70+ years old, but I am still the same tinkerer only upgraded from Erector Sets.
My profession for most of my life has been 'programmer'. I am now semi retired, working at my own company and servicing my software installed in our few remaining customer sites.
I use Sketchup for my tinkering - everything from custom designed desks to garden sheds. My #1 hobby is woodworking.
I use Sketchup because it helps me visualize what I am designing. I could not have completed my latest project - a garden shed - without first building it in Sketchup:
I am now using Sketchup to design a pantograph for use in my workshop. I consider myself a beginner, even though I have used Sketchup many times. I have not been to 3DBaseCamp.
Alas, a Ferrari does not appear to be in my future. But I do have a laptop setup with docking station, external hard drives, and monitor. Runs Win 10 Pro (alas, I wish I could use my old XP Pro system - the most reliable and friendly system in my house).
