Welcome to my personal web site. It serves mainly as a grab bag for images served into forum postings and blogs, and some files I make available for downloading to individuals from time to time. I don't maintain this page regularly.
I am a software developer, focusing on astronomy automation software since 1998. For details, see the DC-3 Dreams, SP web site. I also the founder and still chief evengelist for the ASCOM Initiative, a group dedicated to open architectures for astronomy software. I've done lots of things work-wise during my life, all related to engineering and management of a tech company.
I also work 800+ hours a year as an armed/uniformed volunteer for the Lake Patrol Division of Maricopa County Sheriff's Office in central Arizona. That's me in the pilot's seat of one of the two airboats we operate on the Lower Salt River every weekend during the summer. During the rest of the year, I work in wilderness areas of the Tonto National Forest, assist in training exercises, etc. During December, I work as a partner with a deputy on the multi-agency East Valley Holiday DUI Task Force, which is sponsored by the Arizona Governor's Office of Highwway Safety. Here's a link to the GOHS stats as of December 21 2009 (PDF), before the task force was finished. This task force is the #1 DUI enforcement Task Force in the entire nation! I'm proud to serve, and it is very rewarding.
Here are a few non-business programming projects I've been working on:
CSipSimple (an Android-based VoIP phone app)
And here are a few things that I've been hosting for years.
