Experience and excitement for all roles in engineering organizations. Co-founded two acquired companies, have worn all hats: CEO/CTO, product development, sales, quality engineering, manager, training and development. I get my fingers dirty and develop empathy with all the hard working people in all organizations with which I have been involved. Started as an engineer, and always return to engineering.
