MY "JOB": My main job is as an electronic design engineer and consultant. My major recent activities relate to developing solar lighting for developing country use- made in China, used in many countries. Also along the way: exercise equipment controllers (Taiwanese made), other solar lighting and solar power work, microcontroller based designs, power electronics, RF telemetry. I also work on design and investigations in a wide range of other technical and engineering fields.
Photography: I am a prolific photographer.
I enjor photography, and I enjoy people enjoying my photos.
I do a small amount of paid photographic work, but very mainly it's a hobby
(or, as my wife says, an obsession :-) ). I have travelled extensively (in recent years mainly in Asia for electronic design work) and “many many photos” happen along the way. China (15 visits), India, Brunei, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau, …. .
