Background/Interesting Fact
I'm married with three children. My wife is the most wonderful woman in the world. She encouraged me to build the observatory and seldom if ever wakes up when I sneak out to observe, or conversely sneak back from observing.

I'm a Software Engineer by profession.

I observe visually, by CCD (BVRI) and PEP (SSP-4 JH near IR).

My real fascination variable star wise is with Cataclysmic Variables, R CorBors and BL Lacs - anything that does dramatic detectable things. I regularly observe Betelgeuse in the near IR in the hope it will do the most dramatic thing of all!
