Santa Barbara Scientist Teaches Computers, Physics, Math, Engineering, Accounting, Project Management, and Aviation

Methodology

BA in Physics, UCSB / CPA Level Accounting, UCSB / 6 Patents in Nuclear Physics, 6 Provisional Patents in Financial Technology, 1 Provisional Patent in Mobile Devices. Former director of a nuclear laboratory. Took a software company public. Started writing software in 1959. Worked on Moon Rocks, 1969 - 71

Background

I teach in person, on the phone, or via Skype, one-on-one or in classes. I believe most things can be understood if they are explained in the right way. I taught 35 people to fly, raised 3 sons to manhood, explained neutron physics to members of Congress at their invitation, helped 25 kids create great science fair projects, had a science radio show for 6 years, and currently teach project management to Naval Civil Service managers.

• Developed neutron activation analysis techniques for identifying nitrogen, aluminum, and chlorine.
• Developed a nuclear disruptor concept to neutralize smuggled nuclear weapons.
• Designed an experiment for orbital flight to test crystal growth dynamics in microgravity.
• Created an automatic test equipment package for microphonic noise isolation in InSb detectors, and architected a production line test platform for space-based HgCdTe devices.
• Worked in Mössbauer spectroscopic and x-ray crystallographic analysis of lunar return samples from Apollos 11 and 12, with specific application toward olivine-pyroxene ratios.
• Chief scientist for oil spill response plans for Chevron offshore platforms and Unocal onshore pipeline routes and facilities, including trace contaminant detection.
• Author of Unocal fugitive non-reactive and reactive hydrocarbon emissions sampling protocol.
