AIRPLANES & AERODYNAMICS
The aerodynamics of flight has always fascinated me. So I got a couple
of degrees and did some work for a little airplane company.
BS/MS in Aerospace Engineering, Texas A&M University, 1995/97
Senior Aerodynamics Engineer, The Boeing Company, 1997-2014
15 years of wind tunnel testing
Development of flow visualization techniques
Data acquisition systems
Servo mechanical systems
Flow angle probes
I also know how to fly airplanes.
I have a Light Sport Pilot license. Here is a video
of me practicing landings at Arlington (KAWO) where I took my lessons.
The airplane was a Tecnam Sierra P2002, very fun to fly. Unfortunately the FBO I
flew out of closed shop and I haven't been able to find a new place to fly.
Hopefully I'll get back up in the air again some day.
COMPUTERS & SOFTWARE
After unlearning the FORTRAN I was taught in college, I learned how to
really use and program computers. And I continue to do so, but here is
some of what I know.
Object Orientated concepts
MS Visual Studio
MS Office stuff
Linux System Administration
Embedded Systems Programming
Android Application Programming
I climb mountains. Lots of mountains. Photos of some of my various climbing
adventures can be found on my
Flickr page. Here is a video
of me climbing Mt. Redoubt in the North Cascades. Other places where I have
adventured to include:
