BS Class of ….

From 1985 to 1989 I played professional football in the Canadian Football League. During each off-season I worked in a CPA firm in Milwaukee, WI and completed the necessary accounting course work to qualify to sit for the CPA exam. After retiring from football, I spent four years working for IBM as a Marketing Rep and then, after earning an MBA from the Kellogg Graduate School of Business at Northwestern University, went into business for himself. Since 1993, I have owned and operated several businesses in the residential HVAC, Electrical and Plumbing service industry. My most current business is BuyMax, LLC, (www.4buymax.com) an internet based “group buying” organization similar to Sam’s Club or Costco for the residential service contractor, with distribution locations in Fayetteville, TN and Las Vegas, NV.

Class of ….

I was hired by the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division in China Lake, CA and I started in March of 2002. During my time here I have written and tested software for the F/A-18 Hornet Fighter Jet, the AH-1 Cobra Attack Helicopter, The Tomahawk Cruise Missile and a project called DPSS (the Digital Precision Strike Suite) which is used by special operations forces in the field to guide satelite guided bombs to their targets. For the last 26 months I have worked permanently on the F/A-18. Boeing has turned the software upgrades and maintenance over to us for versions A-D of the aircraft. I am currently in charge of upgrading the F/A-18 Simulation Software used for development and testing. Last fall I took the PSP (Personal Software Process) class here on base and this summer they sent me to SEI (the Software Engineering Institute) in Pittsburgh for 2 weeks to become a PSP/TSP instructor and coach. Programming is still my main job here but I'm also in charge of implementing PSP/TSP practices to the group.
