Jack of all trades...master of none. That's me when it comes to my on-again/off-again hobbies...which include (but are never limited to) mobile devices, web design, geocaching, model rocketry, corrugated art, modifying my Jeep and a 1970 CB350, home repair/remodeling and my latest venture...learning to program and build electronic stuff with Arduino microcontrollers.
My latest hobby where I learn to program microcontrollers, learn a bit about electronics, and hopefully build some cool and useful devices along the way.
is an Arduino-based accessories switchbox for my Jeep Wrangler, initially allowing me to control up to 8 devices via relay switches and view temperature and battery voltage. More features to come.
is an Arduino-based cat treat dispenser for my cat, Charlie, controlled remotely over WiFi.

This one may be a mix of corrugated art and arduino projects. BlynkBot is a small notification center and Blynk test center. Lights up when I arrive home and arrive at work. Different lights when Joey arrives home and to school. Lights for the weather and Phillies wins (very rare). Servos move his arms and his left arm rings a desktop bell when someone rings the doorbell.
A spin-off from my daytime job, its always fun to build something cool out of everyday materials like corrugated-cardboard, paper and other "recycleables".

My daily ride...soon to be my son Joey's daily ride. Seems there are two things Jeep-ers do. First is to go off-roading whenever they can. Second is to modify your Jeep however you can. I only offroad here and there...but I love to change and add things to the Jeep. When was the last time you sawed into or drilled a hole in your car? Just minor improvements so far...but big plans for the future (as available money allows).
My first project bike. I spent more time fixing it & modifying it than riding it. It was fun while it lasted but we had to part ways. This is the closest I'll get to another bike so I'll keep this page as a reminder of good times past!
