Worked as an electrical designer at the Fore River Ship Yard. Paid my way through college by teaching myself radio broadcasting electronics, becoming a licensed radio broadcasting engineer (First Class FCC lic.) then working as a chief engineer at local radio stations.

After 3M I chased greener pastures including Elastimold Division Amerace Corp, industry sales specialist and Anderson Power Products div High Voltage Engineering sales manager.

I have done extensive professional level and craftsman upskilling training along with consultative selling. As a industry specialist, sales manager, and marketing manager. I traveled the East Coast from the Mississippi River east (Toronto CN to Florida). 

I've done many diverse jobs from being an electrician, to a radio station engineer, to launching, developing and managing on-line e-mail discussion forums:)

My teenage years were spent racing sailboats around Massachusetts Bay (Boston, Quincy, Wollaston).

I enjoy building ship and boat models, photography, developing discussion forums and learning new technologies.
