I started my engineering career at Rockdyne as a rocket propulsion project engineer. I moved onto Northrop Grumman and worked as a fuel system architect (and beyond) on various EMD programs such as F18CD, Blue Angels, F18EF, F35, B2, X-47B and more. These were exciting times - fast paced, a lot of accountabilities but most of all that I loved was the opportunities to learn, grow but still be able to pay attention from detail designs to top level air vehicle issues. I retired from Northrop in 2012 and moved back to the Midwest to be closer to the family. I went to work as Chief Engineer of Cobham Mission System. I worked on Drogue refueling, OBIGGS and crew oxygen life support equipment and systems. I now am consulting with USAF on the KC-46 aerial refueling tanker. I am starting this consulting business as the next natural step in my career. I hope that this will afford me the opportunity to share my experience with a broader customer base and give me many opportunities to mentor the next generation of Aerospace engineers.
