(Board member 2022-2025)
Professional title at time of instatement: consultant
I have been an amateur astronomer for over 50 years. During that time, I was President of Amateur Telescope Makers of Boston (ATMoB) for two years. At the time of my appointment to the board, I have been an AAVSO member for four years, and have ~16,000 measurements in the database, all using AAVSONet instruments. I am the image reviewer for MPO61 and am Instrumentation and Equipment Section Manager. Over the years, I have done a lot of work in public outreach and education. I am the observatory manager for the Timberlane Regional School District Observatory in Plaistow, NH. I am the Executive Secretary of the Antique Telescope Society.
Professionally, I enjoyed working for 40 years in the semiconductor and semiconductor capital equipment industries in engineering, marketing, and project management roles, taking new ideas from white board to finished products using matrixed teams of diverse personnel was my specialty. I still perform data analysis and business continuity consultation to various organizations. I also volunteer for AARP TaxAide doing free tax preparation, and am the Chair of my local Zoning Board of Adjustment.
