Bio: I was born in Pennsylvania but grew up in Florida. After graduating in engineering from U of Florida I worked for a major aerospace contractor in the Cape Kennedy area on radar for the Atlantic Missile Range and the telemetry display system for NASA Apollo Program. I moved to the northeast working in assignments involving mainframe computers, phased array radar, sonar and military LAN systems. After retiring I managed several military development projects and performed military-civilian technology insertion tasks for a not-for-profit corporation before retiring a second time. Since retiring I published a memoir “A Small Skirmish in the Cold War” and one of the essays in the anthology “Where Were You When You Heard That JFK Was Shot”. I enjoy building models of all kinds, R/C flying and sailing, woodworking and traveling. I have three children and 6 grandchildren. I currently reside in Canada.
