Anthony start life as a Professional Engineer after his EE graduation in 1975 at U of M in Winnipeg, MB Canada.  
He contributed 30 years in various R&D industries such as Aerospace, Telemetry, SCADA, Telecom, Disk Drive, Nuclear Instrumentation, and Contract Manufacturing. He designed VLF receivers, aerospace Stratum 1 clocks, Doppler VLF&UHF instruments, a SCADA system for remote launchpad control of Black Brandt rockets, automated Eddy Current Robotic instruments for CANDU Nuclear inspection,  then in 1980 designed a T1 Test Equipment for Telecom with a teamthat designed the worlds 1st ISDN broadband WAN for consumers with T1 to a 100 home trial over coax at Interdiscom Systems. Disk Drive testing and DVT/PVT in the 80's was much like military telemetry testing. In the 90's he managed prototype build for SMD Wireless AMR for gas/water/electric meter-reading for IRIS Systems and contributed in BER tester design. After Y2K,  he designed the world's smallest TV headset, the M1, while at C-MAC in 2002 and then was awarded the 1st design sub-contract with Lucent (AVAYA). His expertise in Manufacturing and Test Engineering also included RF, Disk Drives, SCADA, HALT/HASS / EMI analysis, DFT, DFM, DFC, as he had a rewarding career in R&D in Electronics. Now partially retired , he supports companies with problem solving and distributes custom LEDs and in his spare time blogs on Linked In. Anthony has 3 children and 4 grand-children.

His fave accomplishment on the small scale is how to make 50 PPM crystals into a 1 PPM part with micro-oven tests and math in 60 seconds suitable for TCXO's.
