I was offered position from both the 'StanfordEngineering Department
I was offered position from both the 'Stanford Research Institute' and the University of California ('Lawrence Livermore Laboratory') in the wake of a brief gig (less than 3 weeks) as a 2nd engineer/officer with Crowley Marine (Red-Stack/Ocean Going Tug). My first assignment with the Lawrence Laboratory was to confirm the configuration of the deuterium (heavy hydrogen) target in the Cyclotron at the University of California, Berkeley. I competed selected post graduate studies in Physics and Materials Science at MIT and earned MBA in Management from Golden Gate University. My post grad technical education, research and technology interests draw from and contribute to the broad fields of physics, applied math, materials science and electronics. My publications include more than a dozen U.S. 'utility' patents ranging from 'Electron Capture to characterize the properties and features of near surfaces,' to a low-power swept frequency radar system to measure the distance and features of clouds. Notwithstanding my interest, continued education and engagements in science, the undergraduate foundation, taught discipline and challenge sewn by my years at the Academy are without a doubt the Cornerstone behind my success. Thank you CMA!

The California Maritime Academy gave me an excellent practical and theoretical engineering education. It gave me three "meal tickets": a BS degree; a USMM license; and an EIT license.

That knowledge and training paved the way to a 30+ year aviation career, which continues today.
