During my time I managed multiple projects and was recognized as a Subject Matter Expert in Topsides Facilities, Control Systems and Process Safety.
In 2020, I started doing research into climate change and a number of other subjects. And I started to write about the long strange journey through America's Problems. The result of that is "Fixing America - An Engineer's Solutions to our Social, Cultural and Political Problems". If you are truly interested in solutions to our problems that are not based on one political ideology or another. Then please read my book.
