Past 35 years ....
After graduation, I moved to Powell River, BC to work for McMillan Bloedell in their paper mill. I lasted about a year - couldn't stand the isolation - then moved to Vancouver to pursue a masters degree in ME under Bob McKechnie at UBC, which I obtaind in 1975. I then worked at BC Research until 1979, on marine motion compensation systems.

I moved to the US in 1979 to work for Vickers (which was recently acquired by Eaton Corp.) on hydraulic components and systems for marine and aerospace. Along the way, I picked up a wife, an MBA, and a couple of kids. For the past 7 years I have been in sales, and had the opportunity to travel to Europe, China, Japan, Taiwan, Russia, and Brazil - should hit a million miles on Delta in the next few months.
