I’m a native Wisconsinite who is enthusiastic about engineering, the outdoors, and all things Linux.
I’m currently employed in the field of medical device security, and find software most compelling when it’s controlling a physical device.
My primary hobby changes every few years, but at the moment I’m learning a bit of Esperanto and am trying to refresh my high school Spanish. In prior years I’ve earned a private pilot certificate, built a 3D printer from components, and puttered with a homemade Raman spectrometer.
Some day I plan to start the ultimate project for a well rounded engineer: A home-built airplane. In the meantime, my wife will need to continue reminding me that she prefers that I not solder electronics on the kitchen table.
