I have had a dual career in mechanical engineering and electrical engineering, with 36 years experience in the design of mechanical engineering for microwave communications equipment. I am a specialist in the electrical design of switchmode power electronics and ultrasonic fuel oil atomization systems. Since April 2008 I took early retirement. I live in Vancouver Canada.

I am listed as "Inventor" on 10 patents (US and European) in the fields of mechanical design and ultrasonic generators used in fuel oil atomization.
