SUMMARY

 

I am a professional who is most comfortable in a work environment that calls for me to continually acquire new – and perhaps nonstandard – knowledge and/or skills in order to accomplish the tasks/projects at hand. My varied background and my ability to rapidly acquire and exploit new and diverse knowledge and skills could be of benefit in many areas.

My previous education and achievements have been primarily in materials science and the spatial fields of remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS). Additionally, I spent five years doing blast and ballistic testing of vehicles.


My personal achievements include considerable independent international travel experience – especially Europe – going back to 1987. I published a short book on travel in Europe in 2018.
