Background


* B.S. in Design Engineering, Brigham Young University, 1985

* 24 yrs Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) management and support

* Career has been focused on providing hands-on computing solutions for scientists and engineers that will best enable them to accomplish the mission(s) of the Laboratory.

* Implemented first PC network at INEL, used primarily for the administrative disciplines.

* Instrumental in the original definition and implementation of an integrated computer-aided engineering system (ICAES) for the, then, INEL.  The project put a workstation on every engineers desk for the first time, provided state-of-the-art engineering specific software, and pushed the demand for high speed networks to the office.
