Now retired (sort of), I like designing stuff - electronics stuff, mechanical stuff, whatever stuff. Built my first radio when I was 10 or so (it worked but ate batteries far beyond the ability of my allowance!) and always knew what I wanted to be - an engineer. Got my BSEE from Syracuse University in 1964 and went to work for Sylvania Electronic Systems in Buffalo, NY working on a variety of VHF through microwave projects.  That division gradually shrunk to zero size and I was laid off in 1967 and so - I promptly got another design job at RF Communciations in Rochester, NY (hey, guys and gals - remember the good ol' days when jobs were that easy to get!!) when I worked for 10 more years.  Then off to Heathkit in St. Joseph, Michigan for 4 years and then Harmon Industries up here in the Kansas City area.

Worked at Harmon (now part of GE Transportation systems) for 10 years and lost my job as Director of Product Development Engineering in a bit of a management shakeup.  With the help of a good friend, I joined a A&E firm in the Kansas City area for almost 7 years (now that was a whole different type of engineering!) and then wound up at Honeywell Aerospace in Olathe, KS where I (finally!) retired in 2004 or thereabouts at the ripe old age of 64.

I still consult on occasion in analog and microprocessor related designs but mostly play with my hobbies and enjoy my family.
