What I enjoy most about engineering is problem solving and helping others solve their problems—looking at a complex product, part, or process and determining the solution that best balances the sometimes conflicting demands of the customer, state-of-the-art technology and capability, and economic feasibility.
That’s what I did for more than 30 years at GE Aviation, working on some of the largest and most critical engine programs as a Design Engineer, Engineering Executive, and ultimately Chief Engineer for Systems Engineering.
Among the highlights:
► Helping steer product development for the $1.5B GEnx program, as the first Chief Consulting Engineer ever assigned to a new engine.
► Leading preliminary design for the engine that won exclusive selection on the Boeing 747-8, now in production and service.
► Building the next generation of systems engineering talent by creating a system design fundamentals course for the global engineering organization.
