Personal Biography – Technical and Professional Experience (not to exceed 125 words in length)
I have worked constantly in the field of military EMC since completing studies at the University of Waterloo in 1985.
I have worked as an EMC test and design engineer for major military contractors including General Dynamics, Digital Equipment Corporation, Zenith, and Honeywell Aerospace.
In 1992 I started my own EMC company with test facilities in Ottawa, and was selected to a government advisory panel on military EMC in 1995.
In 1999 was contracted to the Canadian Department of National Defence (DND) at its EMC labs in Ottawa, and by 2001 I was an independent consultant to DND and an Army Subject Matter Expert for EMC. These positions I hold to this day.
