I've been active in amateur radio since 2001. I enjoy chasing DX, contesting, FM satellites, as well as 6 meter AM, and digital modes.

Recently, I've become interested in Summits on the Air, (SOTA) and have enjoyed activating mountaintops across New England, including Ossipee Hill, Mt. Megunticook, Mt. Washington, Bradbury Mountain, Mt. Agamenticus, Douglas Mountain, and Mt. Battie, to name a few.

Outside of amateur radio, my interests include auto racing, which I've participated in as a driver and crew member since 1993, surfing, and classic car restoration. I'm currently studying at the University of Southern Maine, located in Portland and Gorham. I work as a Systems Administrator for an automotive group, and in my spare time, I write fiction for publication, and news stories for the local newspaper, The Gorham Times.

When I'm mobile or in the shack, I usually monitor the 146.655 W1NH (-100Hz) and 147.045 (+103.5) K1MV repeaters as well as 147.540 and 146.520 Simplex.
You'll also find me on APRS as KB1HNZ-9

In the summer of 2010, I helped found the Wireless Society of Southern Maine, which meets on the second Thursday of each month at Wassamki Springs Camprground, in Scarborough, Maine (during the Summer), and the Gorham Recreation Department, in Gorham, Maine (in the Fall and Winter). We also meet informally on the off Thursdays at Panera Bread in Westbrook Crossing (near Exit 8 of the Maine Turnpike).

In August 2013, I operated as YO/KB1HNZ from the YO9KAG club station in Ploiesti, Romania.
