After completing college, I was commissioned in the US Navy where I spent 10 years as a Naval Flight Officer. My duties included flying the P-3 Orion out of Moffett Field and overseas, attending the Naval Post Graduate School and eventually working in the Washington DC area.
I met my wife, Gayle, in the Bay Area and have been happily married for over 26 years. Our family includes three children, all of whom have graduated college and have embarked on their individual lives.
I joined Space Systems Loral (SSL) in 1996 and have over 20+ years of experience in Aerospace. The people at SSL have become my second family and I have established multiple long term relationships.
I met Zia in the early 2000’s and instantly became his friend. His warm and engaging personality helped pull me into his life and over the years, I started helping out with the foundation. Upon request, I started organizing the annual golf tournament in 2012 and then joined the Board of Directors in 2015.
