I skipped my senior year of high school and, at age 17, enlisted in the Air Force for a four-year tour during which I worked on a smorgasbord of electronics. The first thing the Air force required was a high school diploma, so I passed the GED test, which led me to begin taking college courses and graduating with a BSEE from the University of Florida in 1981. During the course of my career, I've held many roles and have co-authored 30+ patents. In my current position, I am in charge of designing and debugging everything related to ruggedized transportable computers, including thermal design and analysis, safety and equipment certifications, and EMI/EMC design and verification.
