How I Can Help You

I primarily advise regarding product development and using technology to improve business operations. As such, I mostly guide inventors and developers based on my 40+ years experience creating large-scale systems, both commercial and in aerospace. I also teach several seminars on getting started with internet marketing by creating websites, social media, search engine advertising, etc.

I started my career with 14 years as an R & D officer in the US Air Force, working with military satellites, as an associate professor teaching graduate Engineering courses, and as a project manager at DARPA. Then was the Director of Systems Engineering and Program Director for one of the Tomahawk cruise missile developments at General Dynamics Convair as well as VP, Engineering for the Advanced Systems Division of UTC. In the commercial world, as their VP Systems Engineering, my team at Sony developed the automated control system for DirecTVs broadcast facilities. We developed advanced medical imaging equipment at Philips Medical and at Lunar Corp as their VP of Operations, responsible for R D, Manufacturing, and Customer Service of this worldwide bone densitometry leader. Ended my employed career as Senior VP, Engineering and Program Management at Cubic Transportation Systems, the dominant supplier of automated fare collection equipment for transit agencies worldwide.
