I am a professional electrical engineer and amateur musician.

I first started to see the cracks in equal temperament as a highschooler when tuning a guitar to pure fourths and a third. At the time, I didn't know the source of the error in the pitch of the high E, or that it was called the Syntonic comma. I thought maybe the intonation was off on my guitar.

I first learned in earnest about tuning theory as a university student. The pianos in the rehearsal rooms at my university were badly out of tune. I got tuning tools and learned how to tune by ear. (I also learned a bit about "well" temperaments.)

I'm mostly interested in just intonations (and things approximating them, and alterations of them to accommodate inharmonicity), but not exclusively.

Here is a Well temperament I devised and the spreadsheet used to calculate it.
