I am both a former Member Of Technical Staff (MTS) at Bell Laboratories, and a former Adjunct Professor at Columbia University & NYU. In my long-ago life as a high school student I lettered in Debate, and have used the experience to give presentations to both large and small groups through the years.
My engineering work encompassed both Mechanical & Electrical Engineering, and lasted about 15 years. The professorial work focused on Computer Science, which I taught over a period of roughly ten years. In addition I was a computer consultant for many years on Wall Street, working solely on large UNIX servers & networks.
My personal interests, which are wide & varied (from DIY to sociology to neuroscience), bring a "seasoning" to my lectures, and add perspective & richness to them.
I can only echo the sample letters, and finish by saying I look forward to hearing from you!
I have a BSME and MSE, both in Mechanical Engineering.
I practiced engineering from 1976 to 1980 as a GMI student (this was not an internship, students were expected to do real engineering when they were at the plant, and we were paid a real wage). From 1980 to 1984 my position was R&D Engineer at the Hydra-Matic Division of General Motors. I took a year off to earn my MSE from the University Of Michigan Rackham School. Following that, I became a Member of Technical Staff at Bell Laboratories in Holmdel, NJ, where I worked from 1985 to 1989.
