Making everything from simple Arduino bumper boxes to a very large cislunar city-state (not actually expecting that one to happen any time soon...); Hacking the Planet (see the book of that name). Right now I'm focusing on starting up an open source project which I expect to produce freeway capable vehicle designs mostly buildable with desktop replicators and using Arduino driven electronics. (Would welcome help with this project.)
Some thirty year old circuit design experience; a fair amount of coding in a dozen or more languages since 1970; automotive, aeronautical and aerospace design and engineering (along with a touch of naval architecture); and too many mod' inviting gearhead hobbies. (I modify virtually everything I get my hands on, although a certain amount of that has been decidedly inadvertent... :-/
I'm a retired engineer who was raised and lived most of my life in Alaska. I was chief engineer for a solar car race team competing in the first solar car race across Australia. Designed and built aircraft and much sport and photo equipment.
