I served a tour of duty in the Republic of Viet Nam specializing in microwave and field communications. I attended East Carolina University and Cuyahoga Community College as a Pre-Engineering major. I moved to the Washington D.C. area in 1972 to accept a position at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. Since then I have held positions with Bendix Corp., RCA, Washington Metro Transit Authority ,Pfizer Corp., and currently Verizon Communications Corp.
