RF and Satellite Systems:
Automated Transient Satellite Reception

Built a platform that automatically receives, demodulates, and processes transient weather satellite signals into near real-time images of the earth. 

Physical prototyping, Unix systems, regular expressions, Python and bash scripting, antenna modeling, and radio-frequency circuits were all subjects that were learned and practiced through this project. 

Digital Design:
FPGA Morse Code Translator

Used VHDL to make a device that has the user input a message, and the device outputs the message as light and sound.

Personal Project:
Knifemaking and Metalwork

Design, cold worked, and heat treated in my shop at home. Knives made for both personal use and on commission.
