I am a process engineer by profession.  My lifelong interest is aviation and my major hobby is radio control model aircraft.

My major “outside” interests at the current time include:

Politics (social conservative, economic libertarian, more or less)

IEC (Polywell) Fusion – this may be the (near) future of energy supply

The AGW debate (I am somewhere on the skeptical to denialist side)

US One Meter RC Sailboats – building one, but it won’t be ready for the 2012 Nationals

Wildflowers – we have a half-acre wildflower meadow, hope to post up our inventory at some point

Ingersoll Garden tractors – The most rugged machines out there!
