Biography (more>>)
Started my career at JPL on March 1979 as an electronic technician. Started my first job working as a test tech on the first generation CCD cameras used on Galileo. Eventually worked up to a design engineer both analog and digital also on the Galileo came ra. From this I went on to work as a lead test engineer on the Galileo Computer Data System, then as a Mechanical Engineer designing a Rover Deploy mechanism for MUSES, then served as Flight System manager for MUSES involving muli disciplins such as
com m unications,software,electronics,systems and mechanical. From this I moved on to research and development task lead for Sub Surface Explorer, Solar Sail, Nanorover Outpost. My current job is Electronic Engineer Team Lead for a Large Temperature Range ti ghtly packaged general Motor Controller originally aimed for use on MSL.iu

Education (more>>)
1970 - 1975 Graduate Costa Mesa High School
1975 - 1985 Orange Coast College. I do not have a college degree. I am self learned and have been self taught with some mentoring in the area of Electronic Design, Mechanical Design, Thermal Design and System Design. I believe that my technical leadership involving teams with college education has demonstrated the effectiveness of my self learning.fm
