I am retired with my wife in New Smyrna Beach, FL. My career experience began as a U.S. Navy pilot and subsequently included experience in project engineering, engineering management, and general business management including multiple administrative departments such as training, human resources, payroll, labor negotiations, and strategic planning.

Throughout my career I have performed training and teaching functions in varied subjects including but not limited to: high school level adjunct teaching in economics and math; curriculum advisory roles to community colleges and high school districts; children and adult sports instruction in soccer, swimming and scuba diving. I trained extensively in industry in the areas of problem solving and decision making, strategic planning, and technical trades training. The students in my industrial training have ranged from GED level mechanics to senior executive management personnel.

Despite my technical college education, I struggled with math in middle school classes and have always desired to introduce high school level mathematics to students in a more casual and understandable manner. Both of our children studied pre-calculus and advanced placement mathematics in high school with my assistance and did very well in college mathematics.

I am very proficient in reading comprehension, composition, and grammar.
