MY WEB SITE - presented here for your "interest and review". For me electronics & electromechanics starts at age 10, when my father showed me how to solder, read color codes, schematics & use basic hand tools so I could build my own vacuum tube short wave radio. With my early education in electronics, mechanics & ham radio, I was able to get started on my career path immediately after high school at age 18 with "General Automation", an early industry leader in computer technology & manufacturing. Starting as a Proto Type & Production Engineering Technician - "how cool was that" (not to minimize my prior "Dishwasher & Bus Boy" experience).
ELECTRICAL / MECHANICAL ENGINEER - My experience now spanning decades and including the transition period from vacuum tubes to transistors, discrete semiconductors to integrated circuits to VLSI, etc... Becoming an engineer through non-conventional "on & off the Job Training", hands on experience, self education & starting my own electronics business, then by degree's & other OJT training programs by leaders in industry. Hired as a "Sr Electrical Engineer & Team Supervisor" in 1984 at "General Dynamics", I began a transition phase in my career to leading edge "Mechanical Engineering" through extensive vendor training programs, intimate involvement in microelectronics manufacturing & robotic manufacturing technologies.
ENGINEERING GENERALIST - Transistioning to advanced "Electro-Mechanical Engineer" through extensive, hands on experience, over "tens of thousands of hours" of inventive & innovative "machine design & product development", manufacturing support & "management of product, process & people". Over time, this has given me a very broad "perspective & understanding" of product development, manufacturing, engineering & technology driven products. My unique background in so many industries & technologies create an Engineering Generalist perspective & knowlege base that allows me to transition from one industry & product to another, & then another... With the advanced global skills of an Engineering Generalist I can quickly theorize, interpolate, extrapolate, & grasp virtually any technology based foundation behind a product or business, & then "jump in" to contribute, participate, or lead within any team environment.
