 I graduated from Lathrop High School with a Science Fair Scholarship to University

of Alaska, Fairbanks 1971. I studied Electronics, Math, Physics, Science, & Engineering

at and obtained an MPSE Electronic degree.

   I was the youngest field engineer on the Trans Alaskan Pipeline Project in 1974. 

The Trans Alaskan Pipeline was the largest construction project in the world that year.

I tracked satellites for Department of Commerce Satellite Services (NASA/NOAA and

others) and did a piece of work at the Ballistic Missile Early Warning Systems at

Clear Air Station in Clear, Alaska. I was once said to "Use anything Electronic,"

Electronics: "A science or school of thought  consisting of a number of devices that

exhibit a ratio of in to out greater than one".
