What I Do At present I work for an engineering consulting firm that focuses in both software development and systems engineering. I use my many years of experience to help our clients through their projects via systems engineering methodologies. Great experience and lots of new industries and approaches to learn. Prior to working for this firm, I spent many years in the commercial aircraft business - designing or leading teams of engineers in developing propulsion systems for commercial aircraft. Within this area, I have spent several years on multiple engine/airframe combinations as a designer, analytical engineer, integrator and finally in several leadership roles.
