Background and CV

I am a graduate mechanical engineer.  I worked for The Gates Rubber Company for 34 years in various engineering and management positions.  During that assignment, I represented our company at various technical standards organizations including

  • The Rubber Manufacturing Association
  • Society of Automotive Engineers
  • American Society of Agricultural Engineers
  • American Petroleum Institute
  • ISO TC 41 (Chief USA delegate for SC1)

During my career at Gates, I worked in. and managed. the Product Application Department, and managed the Belt Testing laboratory.  As a part of my assignment, I authored over 100 technical papers and trade journal articles.

In March of 1999, I took an early retirement.  My final position was Chief Engineer.

Subsequent to my retirement, I have done consulting and testified as an expert witness in cases related to my experience.  I also taught continuing education classes to maintenance and design personnel.

My strongest attribute is that I am a hands-on engineer with full fabrication skills.  I have always been able to present complex technical information/procedures to both engineers and non-technical people.  This has served me well in my expert witness efforts.
