I've dabbled in ATV, built portable packet stations, helped set up radio stations at the Burbank Fire Department and County EOC, installed radio gear for emergency communications at my office, put together two APRS beacons, maintain our ARES trailer, coach people in all things related to packet, and get some sleep now and then. With only a little technical advise from my brother (the family's computer professional), I've built or upgraded most of the computers that I currently use (but not the network gear!). My professional background is a civil engineer and Army officer. I retired from the Army Reserves in 2006, after 27 years time in service. I currently work as a disaster response planner for the Corps of Engineers, Walla Walla District, and am involved with deploying employees to assorted parts of the world. I work with various Federal, state, and local governments to develop response plans, provide training, and in general increase general preparedness. I enjoy problem solving in general, and like to learn new subjects in the process. I also enjoy helping people solve their problems, usually by working them through the "problem solving process". Being a technical specialist offers both of those, and I look forward to do so." Contact Information: Via at and by phone Please contact by to set up time for phone call Walla
