Engineering Adventures

Boeing Work
I worked on the advanced air launch cruise missile working on the Radar Cross Section reduction.
Laser Isotope Separation Machine
This is very similar to what I worked on except we did other radio active materials.
Radar Materials Measurement Lab
I developed the lab, fixtures, texting protocol from -377 F to 2000 F. Test beds yielded complex Mu and complex Epsilon vs frequency.
Radar Cross Section Work
I have worked in the RCS community for many years working on the ranges, shaping, and RAM materials development plus measurements.
Vending Machine Revolution
Anton and I developed the vending revolution. As usual anton did all the mechanical engineering and I did all the electrical engineer plus early software programming.
Navy Sea Fighter Vessel
I did all the C5I onload for this new vessel plus did all the security work to get it connected to classified networks.
Titan Affordable Cruise Missile
Worked with the engineering team on many areas of work to include RFI, RCS, and integration.
Scrolling Sign Inventions
I was a principle in creating the rotating signs you see in the NBA, Baseball, and outdoor malls.

Below is the Sea Fighter Navy vessel I did all the C5I onload plus getting its SSAA to link into the Navy’s classified Network.

Below is the advanced cruise missile I worked on with General Dynamics. Mostly did RCS work.

I didn’t ever know that I was born an engineer but I was. It took me a long time to finally get there but by God’s help I did. 

When I started college I had to start back at all the basics because I didn’t really apply myself in High School (stupid!). However, that turned out to be a good thing. I was a pre-med pre-dent student with lots of biology classes, etc., but I realized some things that would not allow me to get into med school or dental school. 

I liked math, a lot, so wanted to get into a bio-math degree program. At that time, there was only two schools who offered those degree and they were in Southern California. Now being from Northern California, who the hell would want to go down there! 

So, I landed in a biomedical program at Sacramento State. Now, since I had so much biology classes they said go straight EE. So I ended up with a BSEE with a major in fields and waves.

I was hired by Boeing to do some real cool EMP hardening in the pacific but when I got to Boeing I found out I was hijacked by the Radar Cross Section group (RCS). Well, this did in fact serve me well in the long run.

My wife at the time hated the weather in Seattle so I got a job and Lawrence Livermore Labs, a very prestigious place and worked first in technical security and then in laser land. Was a fundamental engineer on the PU LIS system.

I left the Livermore area to take another aerospace job, RCS with General Dynamics. I worked in RCS until being laid off in 1990.

Once laid off I did some golfing programs, the mental side of the game, and went out to make some money. I did end up working with the scrolling signs and build a company around that. I did hire my old boss VP Anton Simpson to head the company. I worked with Anton for almost 25 years as my boss and mentor which was one of the best things that ever happened to me!

Anton and I also worked on revolutionizing the vending industry and created the “multimax” vending company.

Next I went off to build an internet company where we were profitable in the first year. 

Finally went off to build up my business and consult in the aerospace business, start ups, and high technology companies like L3, Titan, and DSC (Decisions Sciences Company).
