As usual, I forgot about G+. =P

Hello friends. After the last few years in the Midwest, we're finally heading the rest of the way west. The Kramer family is moving to Seattle in August. We'll miss all our friends out this way, but look forward to seeing all our friends out that way.

I'm joining "Special Projects" in Microsoft Research. Should be a blast.

I haven't updated this in a long, long time.  I left Deeplocal a year ago, and now I'm the Lead Robotics Engineer at MTD Products.

So, the project I'm currently on at work is featured not only on CMU's homepage: http://www.cmu.edu/index.shtml

But also on Gizmodo: http://gizmodo.com/5963570/the-military-has-enlisted-a-laser+wielding-paint+stripping-robot
