Professional Objectives:

I have been involved with semiconductor memory product development in

discrete and embedded applications with a focus on test over the past 25

years. In that time I have developed a rich set of peripheral skills far

beyond the narrow focus my experience would suggest. Most all of these

were developed out of a need to solve serious and consequential problems

facing the companies I have served to great effect and success. I want to

broaden my career by applying some or all of these skills to advance

cutting edge technologies in computer applications, network infrastructure

or firmware development; even if it is cutting edge using trailing edge

products. I love to develop IP, the thrill of discovery and the drive to

make good products better motivate me, but it is the ability to explore a

problem space and develop a practical solution that is my most defining

trait. Admittedly, most of my accomplishments have been at the individual

level but it was those few I had as a contributor that brought the most

satisfaction and it is this desire to be a part of something special that I

most crave.
