About Me.

ELECTRONICS ENGINEER & Amateur RADIO OPERATOR

Active in all fields of STEM, I find myself settled down in electronics engineering where I was exposed at a very young age to electronics as my dad (KB9FTM). Working in the broadcasting industry on a tv truck I grew up with the chief engineer Carl (WB9AVW) and followed his footsteps as a EE. I began with getting my radio license and toying around with anything that caught my interest. Being a dyslexic individual and the environment I was in science was in me at a very young age and the curiosity of science drives me still to this day. After some time I found myself working with my mentor Carl where with him in the broadcasting field we are developing fiber transport systems to aid in the packaging of video and audio threw fiber.

In the community of ham radio I was guided by many of the smarted people of their day such as Joe (KA9KBU), Mark (W9GNC) and Lionel Freedman. I began developing a very close bond with some of my best friends all whom built the framework for us today in the 60s-80s. In my teen years I started being asked by the community to put up repeaters with usually the towers associated with as well. I always said yes to every opportunity to develop my skills.

Now in my latter 20s I have moved my curve from electronics to software and dove head deep into javascript, python, verilog, VHDL, GOLang, Reactjs, React Native, to name a few off the top and I love it. My mentor is my girlfriend whom I owe a great gratitude for nurturing my curiosity. The complexity of microservice architectures and the beautiful balance of the webstack is something I enjoy very much. Allowing me also to use the skills in supercomputing where I built my own supercomputer and bridge the gap of my passion of science. Now I can programmatically tackle small problems with the resources I have at my disposal and simulat before I act and spend money :P

I hope with this information I provide a insight of a little about me and where I came from to develop my interest as the amount of information out in the world is limitless i'm never afraid to dive in.

Intrest

Web & Mobile Development

My primary focus is on Reactjs, React Native, HTML, CSS, and GOlang and RethinkDB. I like using Firebase and AWS for my backend goodies.

Electronics

RF and 3G/12G SDI video with fiber is what i'm involved in now. However I enjoy using FPGAs and arduinos with raspberry pi for my projects when I can. But favor the vacuum tubes with homebrew tube amps and transmitters.

Computer Science

Supercomputing is neet and you can do it with MATLAB, Python, MPI, CUDA and virtually any library out there. I like simulations that can be applicable to me testing them out on my machine. Neural networks are cool to observe and play around with more research is needing to be done in that field.

STEM

STEM is cool I have won two contest so far involving STEM. This includes a 3D printed telescope and a smart TCAS (Traffic Collision Avoidance System) system.
