About Moser

Hello I’m Andrew Moser! I’m an Electrical Engineering graduate (Summa Cum Laude) from Northern Illinois University. I grew up in Peoria IL and continue to live there. I am always positive and my mind is always working on something! I made this site to be able to write about solutions to electrical engineering problems. This site is mainly for my personal reference, but anyone is welcome to reference it too!

Education: I originally majored in Computer Science and Digital Media Arts at Huntington University. After discovering that I can’t sit in front of a computer for the rest of my life, I left the CS/DMA major. I then transferred to Illinois Central College and finished two associates in “Engineering Science” and “Arts & Sciences.” After that I transferred and finished my bachelors at Northern Illinois University.

Hobbies/Social: I love to bicycle! I normally ride on the Rock Island Trail, which is a block away from my parent’s house. I typically ride 20-30 miles at a time, and in summers I ride at least three times a week. I love working with micro controllers, and I normally work with Arduino, AVR GCC, PIC18F series, or the Parallax Propeller. I enjoy shopping too… who doesn’t? Why didn’t I buy that fuzzy hat!?

Job: I’m part of the development team for Caterpillar’s autonomous trucks.

Social Networking sites: I do not use Facebook, Twitter, Myspace…etc. I must be crazy to not use any of these! In short: I don’t fully trust these companies, and I’m the type who often strays from the crowd. It’s not that I have anything to hide, but I prefer some privacy. Here are some good articles which influenced my decision. Six Reasons Why I’m Not On Facebook, Social Media Background Check

Blog: I mainly focus on simple component guides for the absolute beginner and occasionally an exhibition post. Due to time limitations I won’t focus on anything real advanced or time consuming. PLEASE tell me if you find a mistake on anything! The equations I reference are from physics books, engineering books, and yes… the internet. The derived equations are copied from notebooks I use, and neatness is often comparable to chicken scratch. I review everything before posting on the blog, but some projects were done a long time before this blog existed and I’m not as fresh on the topic! It’s also worth noting that everything on this site (my content) falls under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

Resume: Request it in a comment and I’ll email it to you – the comment won’t be public.

    Hey Moser, your work inspires me. You remind me of someone I used to live next door to. I think he LOVED my music very much, but I’m sure you would. Keep Up the good work!

    Mr. Moser, I have a simple question to ask, if you have the time to correspond for a short moment, I assume you have access to my email address?

    Hi Moser,

    I have an application that I’m extrapolating from the arduino high voltage article you have on here. Could I email you for a question about it?
    Thanks so much!
