I have over 15 years of Project and Program Management Experience at both the Department of Energy and National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Currently, I am the Deputy Director of Aeronautics at the NASA Ames Research Center; previous positions I have held include the Agency Level Program Manager for the Aviation Capacity Program, Chief of the Aeronautical Projects and Programs Office and the Aeronautics Associate Director for Programs and Facility Operations.

My education and specialized training include Masters Degrees in Management (Sloan Fellow) from the Stanford Graduate School of Business and Economics from C.S.U. San Francisco; Bachelor Degrees from U.C. Berkeley in Biological Sciences and Economics. I also have a general aviation pilots license.

I reside in Los Altos, California with my wife Rocky and have three children, Shauna, Kelly and Dustin.
