OBJECTIVE: To obtain a part time position which will allow me to transfer practical knowledge of the wireless communications industry to individuals and organizations needing subject matter expertise for successful completion of  radio - telecommunication projects.

For more than twenty years, I was engaged at State Farm Insurance in the application development of new technology products and services. I developed applications using the first IBM PCs including collection of call records from remote telephone systems. I worked with new product developers from IBM, Bell Labs, AT&T, ROLM, and Motorola. I helped develop several new products as a beta tester, the most recent being the first private iDEN radio network. I attended professional seminars and worked with industry leaders. I was a voting member of the Personal Communications Industry Association, Private System Users Alliance where I made recommendations to the Federal Communications Commissioners. I applied technology to business requirements to provide un-tethered communications, reduce life cycle costs, and improve customer relations. I wrote proposals for executives and procedures for maintenance technicians. I delivered new product and services training to internal customers.
