It's been a long time. Real life has been intruding... but at least real life includes building flying things at this point!

I've been working at Wisk.aero for the past two and a half years, and recently moved to Kanab, UT, so lots of life changes.

Hoping to get back to some personal design projects as well!

Just wanted to say hi.

We stayed in Kanab a couple nights last year. Interesting town. Working remotely for Wisk?

Yes, working remotely since last March, and through the foreseeable future.

Your penance for being absent too long, is to read the entire, now closed, Raptor soap opera.
This one? How bad can it be... only 383 pages. :-O

Wisk aero looks like a cool place to be. How's the team? Startup crazy or otherwise?

It's pretty cool. Some Silicon Valley vibes (which I rather enjoy, having lived there voluntarily for 17 years), but not too much on the startup side -- the company is ten years old, so a lot of the rough edges have polished off. And the product is super cool, super real, and fun to get to interact with and build on a daily basis.

Excellent for you. I have had mixed experiences with electric airplane startups. Some have been good customers. Others have been tough. I guess it all averages out.
