Biography
I am the Senior Director of Engineering at L3 Technologies, Warrior Sensor Systems, Insight. We manufacture night-vision and electro-optical systems (i.e., neat cameras that help soldiers see in the dark at night). I was previously the Chief Engineer and Deputy Program Manager for RSIS in Norman, OK where I worked on the NEXRAD weather radar upgrade (i.e., we provided the data behind weather predictions). I am active with IEEE (the world's largest professional association advancing technology for the benefit of humanity), with Toastmasters (the world leader in communication and leadership development) and the United States Chess Federation.
