Wayne In A Nutshell (Which a lot of people think is a good short description of me in itself.)
After graduating from Homewood-Flossmoor High School in 1986, I joined the Air Force to get money for college. After some shuffling, I eventually settled into Pease AFB, NH and the 509th bomb wing, the first and only military unit to drop a wartime nuclear bomb. I worked all night as a FB-111 crew chief and went to school all day at the University of New Hampshire, taking general classes I knew would transfer.
When Pease AFB closed in 1990, I was working full time and in school part time. I decided to flip-flop this so I got out, packed up, and moved to Tempe, Arizona. I attended Mesa Community College and transferred to the Air National Guard, joining the 161st Air Refueling Group in Phoenix. I switched to Arizona State University and graduated in the summer of 1995 with an electrical engineering degree and followed my heart off into the desert to get lost. Hey, I had the rest of my life to work. I had five day weekends and all the money I needed to survive.
After a series of adventures (including the drive out there), I went to work for Texas Instruments Defense Group in Dallas, Texas. I started in March, 1996 and was sold to Raytheon in 1997 where, in 1999, we finally found out we were in the Systems group.
I also transferred to the Texas ANG where I was promoted to 2nd Lieutenant and put in charge of Disaster Prep. (My motto: "If there's a disaster, we're probably there!" I thought it was funny, but it didn't play real well with some of the more serious military people). I later moved to Engineering Flight. Although I finished in Spring 2000, due to paperwork delays I officially graduated with my Masters degree in electrical engineering at Southern Methodist University at the end of Summer 2000.
Now I'm just kicking back.
But this only tells you what I did. That's a start to knowing who I am, but you really have to dig deeper.
|2006 Sep: Did some cleanup work, added Interesting Articles.|
161st: I put computers in and helped with the network and they still don't have a web page. All this internal link does is scroll you down so you can look at this cool picture of the Grand Canyon in the winter.
