I've been to three or four open houses over the last couple of years. Finally decided to get serious about joining. Hopefully I'll be able to come tonight. I'm married and have three daughters, 5, 11, and 13. My two oldest daughters have been to some of the open houses.
My educational background is Computer Science (B.A.) and Electronics Technology (A.A.S.). Professionally I've done Embedded Systems Work for 20+ years of my career. I've worked on design of industrial handheld computers, avionics and communications, vital signs monitoring and other medical devices.
Eight years ago I became a stay at home dad and became interested in woodworking. From there I got interested in building electric guitars. I've been doing a great deal of learning with my CNC router and 3D modeling software. I'm also interested in developing some of my guitar hardware ideas and designing some pedals.
It would be hard to put all of my interests in a single post, but I'm definitely interested in LASER cutting, 3D printing, CNC, and experimenting with the latest micro-controller boards.
I look forward to meeting you all.
