I maintain this site as a place to put all of my projects, from weekend projects in the garage, to various programming endeavors. I’ve got a background in just about everything, which should be evident in the wide variety of content on this site. A quick overview of “me”:

– Licensed Private Pilot
– Former FAA Air Traffic Control
– Knowledgeable in: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, JQuery, Ajax, MySql, C, C#, C++, BASIC, and more!
– I design and program digital electronics (microcontroller based – PIC, Arduino)
– I can get stuff done in the shop (wood working, metal / machining, etc)
– Love turbines (jet engines)! I’ve owned several – and built one from a turbocharger
– I’ve moved cross-country (east coast to west coast) seven(7) times! Over 23,000 miles of moving (non-military related)
– Rocketry… built rockets, made my own composite fuel
– Developed my own guidance system (partially shown on this site)

I could go on, but things might start to get a bit sketchy, and I’d prefer to remain a free man. 😉


  1. Hello, i’m doing a project that is similar to one of yours, i’m trying to manage the autopilot and set a flight Plan from X-plane, via UDP

    it will be great if you can help me a bit

    Excuse my english


  2. Thanks for the information on the Attitude Indicator. I found it very interesting and useful. I had a lot of fun using it to experiment with the Adafruit BNO055 Absolute Orientation Sensor.

    Best wishes.

  3. Hello,

    I am in the process of putting together my own press brake frame with the same Swag kit and was caught off guard and very interested with the automation side of your build.

    Is there any way you could provide more information on the control side? If so, please email me at [email address].

    Thank you very much!

  4. Hi, I’m embarking on a press brake project very similar to yours.
    Would it be possible to share your arduiro code?
    Would be very interesting to have a look.


  5. Hello,

    Love all the stuff you’ve done with the turbines. I am looking to do a boeing 502 powered jet boat and was wondering where you got your manuals? would also love to chat more and pick your mind about this project.
