biography
I built my first circuit at age 10 and have been hooked ever since. Now, I’m an entrepreneurial professional with more than twenty years of experience in designing and building electronic circuits and systems for communications, sensors, power, and undersea applications. Prototyping Ideas has become my specialty so I provide electronic prototyping, modeling, analysis, design, research and development, and networking consulting services. Past projects include an undersea power and communication junction box for an undersea observatory, fiber optic delay line, and an undersea transceiver design study. I worked at AT&T Bell Laboratories and Lucent Technologies designing undersea telecommunication and optical networking hardware. I co-founded Red Sky Systems which made regional undersea systems. I also study nanotechnology, which has lead to learning Mathematica for modeling device physics, device fabrication at a nanofab, and tutorial production demonstrating graphene FET layout.
