 Interests

Mile High Disc Golf Club
One of the largest disc golf clubs in the country, of which I am a proud member.
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
My latest obsession. These solid easy-to-fly quadcopters have introduced me to the exciting world of aerial videography and FPV flying.
Nixie Tube Clocks
Pretty nifty clocks that utilize nixie tubes to display the time. I'm still in the process of assembling my kit.
