I am a native Californian who grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. During my high school years, I built model rockets, radio-controlled planes, and worked repairing and modifying vintage automobiles (Ford and VW). After college, I spent many years working as a Materials Engineer in ceramic product manufacturing and semiconductor capital equipment development and design.
I earned a BS and MS in Materials Science and Engineering from UC Davis, graduating with high honors (top of class). I hold 34 US Patents, 6 international patents, and have published over 20 magazine and conference papers on advanced semiconductor processing, materials processing, coatings, and industrial lasers.
