About the author...
I'm Doug Vetter, owner and sole author of dvatp.com.
I grew up in New Jersey, worked in the family electrical contracting business, became a pilot and earned a Bachelor of Science degree and an Airline Transport Pilot license.
I've had a long love (and hate) affair with computers and electronics since high school. I worked in the tech industry for 25 years at Bellcore and a couple startups before starting my own company to develop embedded systems. When I'm not pulling my hair out routing PCBs or fixing stupid pointer-related bugs I'm flying jets on behalf of a well-known airline.
Over the years I've dabbled in amateur radio, radio controlled model helicopters and, more recently, the maintenance of my own sports cars.
