 Interests

Mile High Disc Golf Club

Indigo Domotics
This is the software I use as the brain behind my home automation network.
Kato N-Scale Model Trains
I've just started getting into model railroading, but I've really fallen for these teeny trains.
DJI Phantom Quadcopter

Pretty nifty clocks that utilize nixie tubes to display the time. I'm still in the process of assembling my kit.
