Structural Engineering
Engineer, Blue Origin

In August, 2005 I joined Blue Origin (a small, local Commercial Space Company), after 15 great years at Boeing working as an aircraft Structural Engineer. My wife Laurel is still a homemaker, keeping things sane for me and my fine boys Ben (16) and Sam (14). My main non-work related hobby is windsurfing, which I do down at "The Gorge" (Columbia River, Oregon) as much as possible, but never enough. We still live in Algona, Washington, 25 miles south of Seattle, WA.
