I have always been inquisitive and feel that mental exercise is as important as physical exercise. I really do not remember a time when I was not working with my hands or my mind. A child of the 1950's and the space age found me participating in science fairs and learning about our fragile relationship with the natural world.I have been fortunate to have spent much of my professional life working on programs that have advanced our understanding of this garden we inhabit.
Education

Areas of Research / Professional Expertise
A unique synergistic blend of contracts, systems engineering, supply chain management, requirements development and management, proposal management, document management, and hardware configuration management flavored with corporate finance, ISO implementation, process management, logistics, knowledge management and balancing the ITS infrastructure with company and program needs.

Personal Interests
I am interested in every aspect of the sciences and how things are created. I am a voracious reader of technical, scientific and science fiction as well as a great fan of J. R. R.Tolkien having read the hobbit and Trilogy in 4 days in 1965. I am also a lover of dogs. My favorite are mutts and wire haired wild boar dachshunds. I enjoy long backpacking trips with friends and family.
