SPEEA Tech, working through his fourth Contract Negotiation ulcer. I'm a Flight Test Director, which is shorthand for "I Herd Cats at 29,000 feet." I perform the testing necessary to deliver airplanes that meet the user's needs. I am face to face with the end user of our products, world-wide on a daily basis. I know why our products are highly regarded and I also know where the problem areas are. I live, work and raise my family in the Puget Sound area and am proud to be a member of SPEEA. I also ski at Alpental as often as I can!
