I'm a Senior Software Developer. I strive to be a polymathic person interested in a range of subjects which positions me as an Innovator, Problem Solver and Solution Designer.

I gained a broad set of experiences by programming since 1993 in different fields of engineering application. With a speciality in computer vision & CAD, I’m also the inventor of a US patent-pending algorithm in the field of Facility Management.

My current technology focus is on Cloud Computing, mobile computing and HPC. At home I do math, robotics and sculpting.

Do you also have a PC with a Linux install? That is how I'm using my old RCX 2.0. If you do I'll put up an answer with the Linux info.

comment What LEGO wheels would look like the three types used on the JPL Mars Rovers?
I'm only missing 1 wheel (2x 64711) for the MSL rover so I'll order that online. It won't slow me down too much since I'll start with the small rover and build my way up. I'll probably document the build (or show the result) on my blog.

comment How do I make my own LEGO stickers?
For complex shape I use a Swivel Craft Knife (see the picture in the edit). It's really good for details and curves.
