About

My name is Pete Skeggs, and I’m an engineer, father, husband, movie lover, music hound, DJ, and all around geek.

I’ve twice been president of PARTS (the Portland Area Robotics Society) — 2001-2003, then again from 2010-2011.  I was also on the organizing committee for ORTOP, the Oregon Robotics Tournament and Outreach Program, from 2001-2005.  They’re still going — not only running FIRST Lego League (FLL) tournaments but now in charge of FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) and FIRST Robotics Challenge (FRC).

My wife and I are owners of Noetic Design, Inc., an engineering consulting firm, which we started in late 1993 when I quite my day job at Iomega soon after turning 30.  We used to run a side business to design and manufacture sensors and controllers for mobile robots, under the Nubotics brand, but closed this in 2016.

Noetic is somewhat underutilized at the present, as I am currently not consulting but am a full time employee of EM Microelectronic-US Inc., while she is likewise fully employed elsewhere.
