|Checked back into Camp
For just a moment, I considered an honest, autobiographical statement. Then I realized that wasn’t going to happen. So, here are a few bits.
The big deal is that in mid-life I married my wife Lissa. We have one son, Sam, who is now a junior at Whitman. Do not be fooled by Facebook ! We look no older now than we did at Durbar IV.
I have spent my professional career in electronics manufacturing. It really all began with the generosity of Rusty and Fred, who allowed me to hang out at Yale for a semester, while I looked for work around New Haven. I got a chance interview with a guy who turned out to be my mentor at Phelps Dodge Electronic Products (later Chester Cable, later Celwave, later a division of Alcatel.) These companies built passive RF equipment (cables, antennas, waveguides.) I worked for them in North Haven, Yonkers, Marlboro, and Phoenix.
In the mid 90’s, I learned that my skills did not include rising always higher in the ranks of a large manufacturing company. I have spent the past 12 years as a buyer/planner for ElectroSem, a small electronics contract manufacturer.
Lissa has just retired from State Farm, where she worked in a data management center.
We live in Phoenix.
