Welcome to Havasy.net
Thank you for visiting.
I have been collecting things on the web since I created my first webpage on Angelfire.com in 1996. After lettying this domain languish for a few years while I concentrated on other things, I've decided to bring it back to life as a place for my personal and professional lives to mix.
I am the Technical Architect at the Center for Connected Health in Boston, MA. Part of Partners Healthcare, our mission is to change the way care is delivered by using technology to improve the connections between patients and healthcare providers.
Currently, I focus on the intersection of consumer devices and enterprise healthcare systems; mobile health (mHealth); behavior change through technology; and regulatory issues surrounding technology in healthcare.
Graduate SchoolI am also a candidate for a Master's degree in Health and Medical Informatics at Brandeis University.
SpeakingMy job offers me incredible opportunities to speak all around the country on a variety of healthcare subjects. Interested in meeting me? Look at the list of where I and my colleagues will be speaking in the near future.
WritingMy job affords me the chance to write for the Center's website and occasionally in other places. Some of the things I am most proud of can be found in the archives of this site.
The WeatherI am an amateur meteorologist and fascinated by the weather. Of course I have a weather station on top of my house, which offers local weather to my community via the website GraftonWeather.net that I maintain.
The MotorcycleI have been riding motorcycles since 1982 and riding on the street since 1988. I have a preference for the bikes with 80's and 90's styling that I longed for as a child. My current ride (and sometimes project bike) is a 2002 Kawasaki Vulcan 750.
The BlogIn my spare time, I write and rant about the things I am passionate about. This includes technology, tools, and bar-b-que. Sometimes profane - this is where the non-work side of me lives. Please note - these are my personal ramblings.
Other Things About MeSome other things you may or may not be interested in learning about me.
- I was the co-founder of the website Hike-NH.com.
- I volunteer time as a Property Steward for the Trustees of Reservations' Rock House Reservation in West Brookfield, MA.
- I am a licensed General class amateur radio operator (callsign W1REH) and I also hold a General Mobile Radio Service (GMRS) station license (callsign WQBR367).
- I am a sometimes Wikipedia editor and have contributed some of my personal photographs to Wikimedia Commons.
