I attended undergraduate school on an NROTC scholarship and entered the Navy immediately after college.  I was in the nuclear submarine program from 1963 until 1970 serving on the USS Triton (SSN-586).I also taught nuclear power technology and inertial navigation.  Upon leaving active duty, I started working for Westinghouse Electric Corporation in the nuclear power business unit.  Over 25 years i progressed through a series of professional and managerial positions.  Highlights include managing the multimillion dollar nuclear training division and creating a joint venture for nuclear power plant instrumentation in Ukraine which still operates today. 

Upon leaving Westinghouse in 1994, I started a business and personnel management consulting business which I ran for seven years.  After retirement from consulting, my wife and I purchased a tourism lodging business in Alaska which we still operate today.

Volunteer activities include President of the Alaska B&B Association, member of the Alaska Tourism Association Board of Directors, parish lay leader.
