    I joined Texas Instruments in March, 1995.  I was assigned to the RF/µWave group and immediately went to work for Lee Masson on the Harm and Lantirn programs.  I was under the tutelage of David Smith and, as my microwave product technical skills improved (and production declined), David moved on to other projects, leaving me and the lead technical.   Other legacy (i.e. old programs that needed to be supported) programs followed and I found myself repairing units from APS-116, MRCA and other completed programs.
    I worked on the Hughes Network Systems Point-to-Multipoint 38GHz communications project with Dave Reasoner as lead until we lost the contract.  I worked with David Smith again on the BAT program until I was moved to Teledesic, which was promptly put on hold.  Back to Lantirn.  To get away from Module Design (where I seemed to be stuck on Lantirn) I moved down to the Test Group.

Lead Technical:    In the state of Texas, you cannot call yourself an engineer unless you are a licensed Professional Engineer within the state.  Thus, I am a technical.
