Thank you for visiting my home on the web!

Most people know me as the editor and creator of the Lacey Reporter, an online hyperlocal news and discussion portal serving Lacey Township, NJ. The site began as a hobby and quickly grew into a full-time occupation and business endeavor, as a result of the failure of traditional media to serve my hometown,

My interests include radio technology, I earned an FCC Amateur Radio license in 2012 (callsign KD2CXZ). Specifically, I am interested in studying the potential of software defined  radio through the RTL8183 platform and its use in decoding digitally modulated signals, such as APCO Project 25 public safety trunked radio systems.

I am also an aficionado of Linux and open-source software platforms and their usage. Running my websites has allowed me to experiment with virtualization and webserver technologies in order to be able to handle a high volume of traffic while maintaining high availability.
