About Me

Hi, I’m Pete.

If you wish to email me, my email address is pete@heypete.com. My PGP keys are available here, and I encourage you to sign and/or encrypt your emails. Personal, individual, non-commercial messages are welcome, though bear in mind that I am not remotely interested in guest contributions, sponsorships, free stuff, link exchanges, unsolicited commercial or non-commercial offerings of any kind, etc. Any such messages will be flagged as spam and reported to the relevant network providers. If you have even the slightest doubt, ask first.

I’m an American who formerly lived in Switzerland for nearly seven years, and am now in California doing mad science. I have a PhD in Experimental Physics (I melt meteorites and poke at uranium!), am an amateur radio operator (US Amateur Extra: AI6NB), tinkerer (both physical and electronic), dad, husband, and all-around jack-of-all-trades.

This site contains my various musings on topics that interest me and is written primarily for my own amusement. I hope you enjoy it, but I make no guarantees.

I often mention specific products and/or services and the companies that provide them. These mentions are only for informational purposes and I receive nothing in exchange. I have no connection whatsoever with any company or group that I mention other than potentially being a customer or user.
