I’m a consulting engineer with 30 years of experience designing and developing software for embedded systems, communication systems, and personal computers. I specialize in firmware for control and communication systems but also have extensive experience with semiconductor manufacturing equipment, test equipment, mass storage, device drivers, and systems programming.
The picture above shows the payload for a high altitude balloon flight inspired by my son Max who decided he wanted to take a picture of outer space. That seemed a fun challenge so we decided to build a payload with a camera and radio downlink, send it up on a balloon, and see what happened. Click here to see how we did it and what we learned.
