Bio

I am an expert problem-solver with a focus on aircraft design, air vehicle performance analysis, integrated model development, and complex system design exploration. I have over 10 years of full-time, post-graduate work experience, which ranges from leading the conceptual design of a NASA X-plane, to the phased fault-tolerant mission analysis of an operational unmanned cargo vehicle to the International Space Station. While I have worked on a variety of different, complex systems, I am at home with aviation - I design it, I fly it, I instruct it, I write airworthiness standards for it, and most importantly, I dream about what it can be.
