About Me

I'm a professional electrical engineer. After finishing a five-year term in the Navy as a submarine officer, I moved to Los Angeles to catch up on my sun exposure. Now I work on safety-critical control systems for local refineries.

You can sometimes find me here listening to hackers much cooler than me, or here inexplicably running up and down hills for fun. I've also been known to take on projects for a certain awesome roboticist.

On December 17, 2016, I signed the pledge, which states in part: "We refuse to participate in the creation of databases of identifying information for the United States government to target individuals based on race, religion, or national origin."
