Comments

I leveraged the wonderful ETHS education into BSEE and MSEE degrees at Northwestern, then IIT. Started late... I spent a few years in the Air Force first, over in Europe, to get my head on straight.

I have several patents - five on the original Portable Cellular Telephone from Motorola (1978 - long before cellular went live), and another on the entire Cellular system, from Harris RF Communications in Rochester, NY. I managed product development groups at both companies.

For the past 20 years, I managed various Engineering, Marketing, Customer Service, and IT groups globally (US, Asia, Ireland, Scotland, UK, Sweden), for the dominant supplier of "transformer" instrumentation for Power Transformers in the Electric Utility industry. A ton of wonderful travel over the years.

I did a lot of community theater after graduation, and I've been singing in the "Lyric Chorale," Rochester, NY for the past dozen years.

I'm finally retired, but looking for a possible teaching job.

School Story

Not much to be said.

I performed in a ton of chorus and musical events. (Among them, leads in Kiss Me Kate, Little Mary Sunshine, Take Me Along, Carousel, and West Side Story).

I swam for two years and taught swimming all four years.

I'm still in touch with former music and theater teachers, Bill Ditton and Ken Sole (who just recently passed away).
