I am currently looking for work on new projects and short term gigs. I like building robotic devices and software development to make things happen. If you need some help, lets get in touch. You can find me on LinkedIn or SomeoneKnows2000@gmail.com

I am currently managing a project with a team of people building an Arduino Driven, WiiFit Controlled Robotic Labyrinth game as an interactive display in Kansas City’s Science City.  You can find more information about the Robotic Labyrinth project here.

I am also conducting workshops on soldering and  robotics for kids and adults through the HMS Beagle Science Store.
