From Boy Scouts I learned to “be prepared” and that’s what I try to do when Jeanne and I travel to Uganda – how to keep out of trouble, how to get around, where to sleep and eat, what to do for money, etc. Another duty is to act as editor for Peopleweaver documents and website write-ups.
I have bachelor’s and master’s degrees in electrical engineering from the California Institute of Technology and have worked in aerospace all of my adult life. I’m now semi-retired, continuing to work part-time – I enjoying working with a great bunch of people on challenging projects.
