It's been a while! Lots has happened over the last couple of years. I've been working hard behind the scenes, and it's finally coming to fruition. Maybe some of you still check in every now and then. I just thought I should let you guys know what's new.

Here goes... *drum roll please*

I am now the proud founder of spingarage LLC! I started this company in January to develop an integrated electric vehicle drive system, and so far there are lots of good things in the works. I really feel like some of the ideas going into this are huge. I've been working mostly on brushless motors and controllers, and my first product is going to be right along those lines- a development board to help people like me build brushless motor controllers (I've been calling it project kickass, for those who might end up seeing that on my Twitter). Some things never change, huh? Looking at my older posts this is just two phases away from what I was up to two years ago (nerdy three phase joke, sorry)!

Anyway- needless to say, this blog hasn't been getting much of my attention lately, what with the 12-13 hour workdays that come with starting a company. You can keep a little bit more up to speed on my company by liking Spingarage LLC on Facebook (it actually isn't capitalized, but Facebook wouldn't let me get away with that) and by following @spingarage on Twitter. There will be a website up soon, too.

As a few of you will no doubt put together eventually, I'm not at Purdue anymore. I finally had an idea that was just too big to pass up, and decided it was time to move on with my life and do bigger things. With three years of Purdue engineering behind me, I think I'm a lot better equipped to do what I do, and I've definitely grown a lot as a person in my time there.

While I'm on here, I really want to say thanks to all of you who have supported me on my journey to where I am now. It's been a blast, and I'm looking forward to more of the same over the next few years as I continue to follow my inspirations with my company. You guys are the ones who gave me the confidence and enthusiasm to do everything I did when I was younger (albeit not that much younger...), and definitely paved the way for everything I hope to do in the future. Thanks, everyone!
