I take responsibility for a coherent range of operations,
manufacturing, and engineering services, working directly on
design, technical documentation, hands-on production, and enterprise-wide
engineering database development tasks, as well as team leadership.
I have been recognised by my co-workers as broadly skilled, thorough,
hard-working, organized, and collaborative. My usual roles have included:
- operations management
- engineering project management
- engineering documentation and transfer to turn-key manufacturing
- components purchasing and inventory control (MRP)
- schematic entry
- printed circuit board (PCB) design and coordinated mechanical design
- PCB fabrication and assembly supervision
- technical writing and editing
- systems administration for computers and networks
- product release and support

documentation services to an international list of clients.
ULTRACAD DESIGN Inc.
- Bellevue - 1998
UltraCAD Design is a PCB design house offering fast turn, high density
designs with attention to high performance signal integrity. Designed PCBs
and documented their post-production process.
- Berkeley - 1991-1997
Director of Operations, Director of Manufacturing
This company produces advanced high speed parallel processing hardware
and software using field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) as reconfigurable
computing engines. Recognized as the pioneering development platform for
- Built the infrastructure for this company from scratch.
Managed operations, inventory, engineering documentation, and
manufacturing. Brought two generations of design from concept to
completion, manufacture, and market.
- Designed printed circuit
boards for both product lines.
- Co-editor for software documentation of the first product line,
- Member of the founding team.
ARRAY TECHNOLOGIES Inc. - Oakland - 1986-91
Dir. of Operations, Dir. of Engineering, Mfg. Engineer.
This team developed a high fidelity color image scanner for both IBM
and Mac platforms. The camera uses piezoelectric transducers to
microposition an inexpensive 2D color image sensor. I built this
company's infrastructure from scratch, and helped develop the design
- I was responsible for building this company in its first year,
on a budget of $650K, growing the staff from 6 to 14, and providing
an engineering development environment for the camera. Brought two
generations of design from concept to market.
- I directed the engineering effort, while, as manufacturing
engineer, I did all the PCB
design for the first camera.
- For the second version of the camera, I did a tightly
integrated PCB and
mechanical design, including design of a piezo-driven microstage.
- Member of the founding team.
GENIGRAPHICS GP Inc.
- Berkeley - 1984-1986
Engineering Operations Manager, Project Manager
Using no exotic components, this group created an advanced (for the
time) hierarchical object-based graphic arts system featuring 3
pipelined 68020 CPU cards, a family of 26 PCBs, and "paint" software
providing resolution independent output to all media.
SMALL SYSTEMS Co.
- San Francisco - 1983
- Managed engineering operations for the Berkeley
development group from start-up (a staff of 5) through alpha-testing
(a staff of 35 employees and a half dozen engineering consultants).
I was responsible for a $2.2MM budget. I produced and maintained all
development and target computer systems, as well as administrative
computers, while managing operations at this division.
- Initially, supplied all engineering services: project planning,
purchasing, technical support, documentation, and liaison for
contractors. Subsequently hired/supervised engineering services
staff of 12.
Project Manager, Buyer, Technician, Founder
With two partners, produced a multi-tasking Z80-based computer which
provided A/D conversion, data storage, and device control for a novel gas
chromatograph, used for cardio-pulmonary diagnosis and anaesthesia monitoring.
- I built the company, and managed the design project. Completed on time
(11 weeks) and within budget.
- I built the software development computer, purchased components for the
target computer, built the prototype, and documented the system.
