I enjoy a number of hobbies outside of my regular work and I have decided to make a page to list them here.
My most recent personal project is a program in Python that reads net solar metering from a power monitor and instructs my EV on how to charge adaptively without drawing energy from the grid (while the sun is shining). You can read more about it here and enjoy the code for free at: https://github.com/AndrewLeonard707/teslachargingsolar
In 2022, I was awarded a US Patent for a headphone hanger that automatically sleeps and wakes headphones. I manufactured and sold them online; I ended my online sales after selling about 300 3D-printed headphone hangers. Learn more about the patent here.
