About Me

For as long as I can remember, I've tinkered with anything I could get my hands on. Pretty much every toy or gadget I've ever owned has been disassembled and reassembled out of curiosity. I've also had access to computers since a very young age starting with a TRS-80 (which belonged to an older brother) and then my very own Apple IIc when I was only seven. Not surprisingly, my hobbies and interests have guided my education and career. I received a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Alabama in 1997. During that time I worked not only on aerospace engineering, but also did student research on genetic algorithms and fuzzy logic. Some of that work was performed at NASA Marshall in Huntsville as part of a summer intern program. Then I worked as an Engineer at Lockheed Martin for several years, before finally jumping into software development where I have been working ever since. Not satisfied with just designing aircraft, I earned my private pilot's license in 2011.

Engineer, maker, hacker, pilot, gamer, craftsman, mechanic, scientist, researcher, genealogist, thinker, problem solver.
I am the friend of bears and the guest of eagles.

My Projects

I enjoy working on many different types of projects. As I continue to document those, I'll keep the links updated here as some will be hosted on this wiki, some on Instructables.com, etc.
