I live in McDowell Mountain Ranch in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA, although I'm originally from South Dakota, in the frigid northern realms of midwestern America. I'm an Electrical Engineer and do system engineering and signal processing algorithm development for broadband wireless systems. Occasionally I manage to pass myself off as a musician, cartoonist, poet, illustrator and writer, although not always successfully.
Some blogs and web presences of note (friends, family, oddballs, whatever)...
I've managed to spend an inordinate amount of cash going to racing school at the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving. Due to the miracle of electronic publishing, you can read about my experiences learning to drive fast. I took the four-day Gran Prix Road Racing course in October, 1994. Read about the first two days, the third day, and the fourth day. Exactly a year later, I took the two-day Advanced Road Racing Course. Read about the first day, and the second day.
Here's some stuff on Digital Signal Processing for Those Who Care. Specifically, it has to do with frequency estimation.
I am an inventor on a number of US and foreign patents. (Thirty-something at last count.)
Once upon a time, I drew cartoons.
Once in a while, I still write poems.

This does not, of course, include the stuff I stole from other people.

The background image of Kokopelli blowing a sinx/x waveform out of his flute is an attempt at faking a glyph showing my interests in southwestern anthropology, signal processing, and music. It seemed like a cool idea.
Here are some words and phrases that'll trigger search engines looking for something else. This should give the guys at the Fed Shed a short break from looking at the really crazy stuff. Sneaky, eh?

NOTE: August, 2014 - The above sort of thing used to be unusual and funny because it was a little provocative. Now with large numbers of people spouting radical opinions all over social media, hinting at things like a government overthrow is now common to the point of annoyance. I'm leaving the above as-is mostly for historical purposes.More later. Cheers.
