     Hello and welcome once again to my website.  In the following pages I have strived to present an overview of my technical expertise that I have developed during my career. I started my career in electronics some thirty-three years ago. I have been employed as a bench technician, systems technician, programmer, engineer, field applications engineer, supervisor and manager. For more than 10 years I held the position of Operations Test Manager for Nokia. During my time with Nokia I have seen the Information Technology and Test Engineering disciplines become very interrelated. Many of the automated product alignment and testing equipment require IT resources to function and store test data. Through this relationship I have developed skills that encompass both the Information Technology and Test Engineering fields. Listed below is a brief overview of my experience.
