I am a Naval Academy graduate and retired nuclear submarine officer. I love finding new ways to look at problems because that is often the key to comprehension and discovering a simple solution. I also love seeing the spark of recognition in the face of someone who has just grasped a complex concept, and I derive great personal satisfaction from contributing to that. I also take great pride in being able to provide multiple ways of explaining any given problem. I am a great proponent of the maxim (attributed to Einstein): "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler."

I have a B.S. in Naval Architecture, a M.S. in Aerospace Engineering, and an MBA. In the Navy, I gained hands-on experience working with nuclear reactors, submarines, and missiles/rockets. Since "retiring" I have become an engineer for a semiconductor manufacturer, where I supervise the equipment that uses plasma in a vacuum and magnetic field to deposit metal atoms onto silicon wafers. This diverse background has provided me with personal familiarity of a wide range of topics across physics and engineering, and sometimes gives me a somewhat different perspective from that of a pure academic. The students I have tutored often comment that I present material in a much more clear and straightforward manner than their professor.
