I received my Amateur Radio license in 2002, and reached Amateur Extra class before they removed the Morse Code requirement. My call is KG4RZH!. I've been inactive for a while but am getting interested in it again. So far I've contacted 31 states and 19 countries, including Australia! I operate a borrowed Icom 735 rig into an 80 meter dipole up about 20 feet. I primarily like contesting because I don't have to think of things to say...
I went back to school in 2004 and eventually earned a Master's degree in Computer Science from William and Mary, in August 2008. I am interested in parallel computing using nVIDIA CUDA, multicore, clusters, and Sony Cell to solve problems in audio and video processing using integer-based Fourier style decomposition. However, I don't really have the time nor the hardware to work on it outside my own skull.
Starting in 2005 I regained my Private Pilot (ASEL) privileges after a period of inactivity. I was able to prove to the FAA that my Crohn's Disease would not be a problem. I repurchased the Cessna 150M N63623 I partially owned just after getting my original certificate.
My wife Tedi and I are part of the Williamsburg Choral Guild where I sing baritone and she sings alto. I also participate in the choir at Williamsburg Unitarian Church.
Our sons Will and Emrys work at Computer Concepts providing a wide variety of computer hardware and services. Our daughter Mari has finished her bachelor's degree at VCU and is putting in her time gaining experience in the counseling field.
A couple years ago I transported animals for Pilots N Paws. Here are a few pictures:

|Smith Mountain Lake||Hale's Ford - Birthplace of Booker T. Washington||Appomattox|
