[edit] Who Is This Guy?

I live near Harrisburg, PA (40,-76)

I used to live in the greater metropolitan area of "fabulous" Las Vegas, NV (36,-115). It was frustrating most of the hashpoints were on mountains or in Area 51!

I'm looking forward to hashing all over the country and the world, especially elusive ones on remote islands I have to go to. Don't be surprised if I randomly show up at your meetup!

[edit] Work

I do electrical design / programming / commissioning / r&d of high performance motion control systems for large scale entertainment (primarily in PASCAL & ladder logic). Yeah, kickin' it old school. Don't get me started on Profibus...those Germans!


[edit] Not Work

Camping + sailing + Vespas.
