I'm an systems engineer, with some focus on complex systems, signal processing and a bit of control systems. My current job title is "Senior Satellite Systems Engineer". I am also a hobby photographer, and fairly avid programmer. I am the programmer of the Android app Psychic Tester, and my newest app, Ham Finder. I am also the author of the blog, The Making of a Ham, and the photographer on PearsonArtPhoto.com.

To see some of my photography, check out the following sites:

comment How should I handle my foster son saying he's not my 'real' kid?
I suspect that it's "Some foster kids don't get that you would have any feeling about it at all, and are just trying to be precise.", but that only helps so much... Sigh.

comment What can I do to encourage my 12 year old son to enjoy productive activities?
He has become involved with scouting recently, and it's considerably helped this problem, I must say.

+1 for not telling them in advance their reward.

comment How do you deal with a 9 year old not doing their homework?
There's a number of factors. I suspect the biggest one is she just doesn't do it because there's lots of other fun stuff to do (The fun stuff is slowly going away...), but there are other reasons.

Which is pretty much what I would do, but it's nice to have confirmation.
