Hello, my name is Mike and welcome to my site.  This site is a collection of various projects I enjoy working on.  I have been working on interesting project ever since high school.  Several years later, I have quite a collection I need to document.  Every time I work on a project, I take pictures with the intent of documenting later.  To date, have not done a very good job in keeping up.  

I created this website, in order to start the process and get the documentation going.  The following is a bit about me if you care.  I have a degree in Electrical Engineering from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.  Up on graduation, I moved to the Bay Area, to work for a high tech company building and designing solar arrays for high power satellites.  I still make time work on projects for several of my hobbies.  You can get a good idea of what I am interested in by checking out some of my write up’s.  As you can see from some of my write up's, I like pictures.  I will attempt to attach the full size pictures for my post.  Hope you enjoy.

Please Contact Me if you would like to discuss any of my write-ups, would like to contribute to any of my open source project, would like to discuss any project you are working on or anything else on your mind.  As I mentioned I live in the Bay Area so if anyone local would like to meet up just let me know.

Also, if there is anyone who would like to design a Drupal theme for this site, I would really appreciate it.

Below is my list of things I would like, but so far have not had a need so great as to purchase.  If you are the manufacturer and would like to give me one, I would be willing to write a review:

  • An oscilloscope and current probes
  • Variable power supply
  • Laser engraver/cutter
  • Cannon DSLR Camera for specialty photography
