Profile Summary

I have worked in the Aerospace and Electric Power Fields in the arenas of design, product development, project management, and training. My education and experience have all fed my passion for exploring technical fields, designing modern energy systems and explaining new trends.

Currently the Energy Sector is undergoing tremendous changes and creating new opportunities, with turnover in employees, the application of emerging technologies, and the global response to future engineering challenges. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your continuing education needs and ideas.
