I'm James Mathews, I live in Mims (North Brevard) Fl, and I have three daughters. I am a service-disabled veteran (Go NAVY!), a former computer engineer for the Space Shuttle, and currently employed as a Software Integration Engineer contractor for the government. My interests include almost anything in the realm of hardware, software and robotics. For the last couple years I have served as the coach for a local elementary school's Lego Robotics team. Current projects include neopixels (currently have 5m @ 60 led/m smd5050 w/ws2811 (aka ws2812), black fpb, IP68), arduino (currently own a mega), robotics (numerous small to mid range robots), and embedded computers. I have attended the last couple open houses and been very impressed with the quality of the membership.
