Hi, I’m Mike!  I own and work at an engineering design firm (Canopy Design Lab) in Charleston, South Carolina. I finished my doctorate at The University of Rochester in 2007 and then spent three years as a post-doc at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.  I put this site together to get some feedback and share various insights and thoughts on:

  • Electronics and technology –  embedded design, low power VLSI, microcontrollers, FPGA’s, and PCB design
  • Programming – For me, it doesn’t get better than Python… but also iOS, C, C++, Javascript, Verilog
  • Aviation – I suffer from a disorder (inherited) that results in spending all excess time and money on making myself airborne.
  • House Renovations – My wife and I are currently and forever renovating the 1940 colonial that we are living in.
  • Ice Hockey, Rock Climbing, and Mountain Biking – a few sports to keep myself injured.
  • Photography – I’ve been taking pictures and making movies since high school and loving every minute of it.

I’m always looking for new projects and collaborations.  Check out a recent version of my C.V. to get a feel for my interests and abilities, and I’ll welcome any discussion and feedback.
